We possibly could not have picked a worse day for it - heavy rain and fog for the majority of the day - however we all seemed to have a great time despite the weather. A couple of newer members joined us, which was lovely, and I had an awesome time driving up the mountain, chatting all the way (and concentrating on the road, promise!)
After a quick coffee at Ripe, we headed into our main destination - the wool shop.
I bought some wool - quelle surprise!
Some Madil Kid Seta for an Angel Puff scarf for Lily's teacher as a Christmas present...
|70% mohair, 30% silk|
As a lovely surprise, my car companions bought me two skeins of this gorgeous Tahki Rio in a deep red wine colourway! I am thinking nice warm hat.
|50% alpaca, 35% merino, 15% silk|
Some Misti Alpaca Tonos Carnaval, colourway "Surf" for a Live Oak shawl from the latest Knitscene...
|50% alpaca, 30% merino, 10% silk, 10% nylon|
speaking of Knitscene, did you know you can now buy this magazine in digital version? and for just US$7.99?? That's a lot cheaper than buying the hard copy in Australia - I think I paid nearly $14 for the latest one!
I'm thinking I will be doing that in future, much easier for storage and projects on-the-go!!
