Recently I had a bit of a hard and tiring weekend dealing with teenaged relatives…and it left me with a bit of a weird mood.
On Sunday I was in a state that made me feel like doing a stint at yarn shopping (totally unneeded! Obviously).
So off I went, without the other half, to the LYS Loop in London.
They have a nice range of beautiful yarns, albeit rather expensive 😉
So this therapy session wasted a good deal of money. Luckily it doesn’t happen often!!!
Here”s a pic of the haul:
After filling up my basket with pretty yarns, I browsed through books and single patterns.
Loop’s Zabadoo shawl looks very nice – who knows what I will do with so many shawls…. if I knit it it will be with yarn from my collection as I dint fancy the colour combinations and really don’t need to spend £££ on a shawl!
At the shop they had a sample of the Oak Knot beanie knit in the very same shade as the one I was buying (like the one also pictured in the pattern) and the comfortable fit was perfect for my liking (I dislike tight beanies) and large head! So I grabbed that one too, because I yet don’t have enough patterns (lol)
And the skeins in details…
Eden Cottage Yarns Bowland DK in Yassop (British yarn):
La Bien Aimee Merino Singles in Sosu:
The Uncommon Thread BFL Light DK in Citrus Peel (orange) and Fern (green) – another British yarn:
Madeline Tosh Tosh DK in Deep (blue) and Patagonia (light blue):
Well, was adding yarn to my collection sensible? I don’t think so.
Did I feel better after the shopping “therapy”? Somewhat.
So maybe, while not rational, it was a good thing to do (one-off). My wallet tells me that it disagrees…
Next, some natural dyes and maybe new projects (or at least preparations for them)
