No doubt you all know (well, all Sydneysiders and perhaps most other Australian knitters) that Tapestry Craft
is on sale! (well, the yarny stuff, not the shop itself). Hurrah! Minimum 20% off everything! Woo hoo!
So my mum is staying with me for a couple of days and so on the pretext that she was sure to want to buy something, I took her in on Saturday. I have never seen so many people in the shop!
And it would just be plain rude of me to leave empty handed. So here is some of the yarny goodness (some excluded on the basis that is for gifts for people who read the blog!). Some orange Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre for a scarf for me which I’ve been lusting after – I just love this colour. And some new yarn called Sublime – it is an aran weight merino cashmere silk blend – just sooooo soft – for a cabled scarf for me (clearly I have two necks. Both of them cold). And some Cleckheaton faux Noro called Vintage Hues – I’ll feel much better felting this cheaper version (for a booga style bag) than the real thing (as long as it works the same as the Noro…)
So the options for the orange scarf – Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style or Branching out from Knitty – what do you think? And for the cream, I thinking about Here and There cables one from Scarf Style and perhaps something like the Irish Hiking Scarf – votes on both please!
And don’t mention Knit from your Stash – well, I did allow 2 falling off the wagon incidents, I guess this counts as one!!
