I-Knit: retail therapy

Just the thing to boost a knitters flagging spirits. My first trip to a fibre festival was good fun and yielded a modest haul - I was quite restrained I think but managed to still bring home some goodies.

The skeins on the right are sock yarns from the Wonderful Skein Queen and the ones on the left are aran weight skeins from the Natural Dye Studio which I hope to make into a hat/armwarmers for me this winter.

I also treated myself to two kits from Toft Alpaca - one to make armwarmers and one to make a hat - both as gifts. I hadn't seen this yarn in person before and fell in love with all the natural colourways - somehow I think I'll be back for more.


  1. You got yourself a nice little haul! I'm a Skein Queen convert too.

  2. .... here's another convert! Her colour combinations were beautiful. I had a very lovely day there on Saturday and, of course, came home with a few little purchases :D 'SNOOPYDOGKNITS'
