just have to skite

Post by white-rose » Tue May 29, 2012 3:18 am

I have been yarn shopping in the UK and have a huge bagful of the scrummiest softest hand dyed yarns from europe, uk and other places. I am in yarn heaven!! I can see a huge destash going on when I get home so I have room for it all!!

I'm really keen to try some crochet yarn (acrylic, shhhh!) from Stylecraft as I've heard it's really good, but figure it would probably cost the earth to get it sent from the UK. Very jealous of your yarn shopping!! Wouldn't it be wonderful to have access to the lovely yarns that are readily available, and not hugely expensive over there?

I say, revel in your yarny goodness and squeeze as much as you can into your suitcases Louise!! Enjoy :vibes:
