Stash Enhancement

I blame it all on Jackie. She it was who told me of a yarn shop in Droitwich (where?); a yarn shop where the owner was stepping down (though it will remain as a yarn shop); a yarn shop where yarn was going begging; a yarn shop which we could easily reach.

You know what happened, don't you?

This happened:

Six balls of RY Cashsoft. Three light pink, three a darker pink. I don't know what they are going to turn into. At the moment I'm quite happy just to fondle them.

I just couldn't resist this pale pink 100% raw silk - absolutely good enough to eat.

I bought all there was, which turned out to be 200g. 85m/ball. Any idea what I could make with 340m of the most delectable pale pink silk? I just love it.

Finally, I got three balls of Rowan Ribbon Twist:

This, I think, is going to be this wrap from Rowan #38.

Oh, and Droitwich turned out to be a pretty little town with a famous Brine Bath, which sounds horrid but looks lovely.

The cat is still here. S/he (I have no idea - I don't even know where to look) almost got in the yarn pictures but not quite. Next time, maybe.

Many thanks to Daisy for alerting me to the fact that the article about knitting blogs has finally appeared in "Simply Knitting", and that I am featured. I have not yet had the chance to catch sight of it (you may know my views on the ghastly patterns in it) but if anyone sees it, could they just reassure me that I didn't make a complete arse of myself? It's so long since I answered the author's questionnaire that I have absolutely no recollection of what I said.

That's enough for now. Yes, I am back. Yes, I am fine. No, you haven't seen the last of me yet.

The raw silk is gorgeous! I am pea green with envy.

Ok, so the patterns in Simply Knitting might not always be quite, um "tasteful" however their coverage of you knitting bloggers was interesting - and landed me here!
Am rather enjoying your pages...and lusting after your stash!
