Okay, so this week all my good intentions have gone completely to pot! The week got off to a really great start on Monday with not just a blog post but a bit of granny cushion finishing too. But then I got distracted on Tuesday with a trip up to St Andrews to meet some wonderful friends who I haven't seen in a wee while. Although I did manage to salvage the day by finding a great little yarn shop tucked away down an alley - it wasn't a dark alley as it was bright sunny, Scottish, summers day... try saying that in a hurry!
Anyhow, my stash is now boasting a lovely lambswool and cashmere blend from this Scottish company
, who have only recently began producing yarns rather than just fabrics. These two colours were my favourites, Juno and Lissa. There was also a gorgeous silvery grey but that will have to wait till my next trip... *sigh*
Then on Wednesday I was a good girl again and put together some tags for the previously mentioned granny cushions, I also snapped some sneaky peek pics of a few of the things I've been working on lately ~ actually I got tons of pics but most of them were rubbish due to the dreary, rainy day light :( And yesterday (that is Thursday) I had intended to tweak those dreary pics and write a wee blog post, but I got sucked in by Ravelry
and the need to show off my new yarns to the world! Anyway, there I was drooling over all the knitting, crochet and yummy yarn groups on Flickr
when it suddenly dawned on me that there weren't any dedicated to solid coloured yarns, my favourites... *collective gasp* ...well, what was a girl to do but start a new group!? Introducing...
