C dropped me at Stash Fine Yarn this morning while he went to B&Q,prior to us going into Chester.Big mistake!I bought this yarn to do the above(sorry, the flash spoiled it).I intended to buy cream but spotted this and changed my mind.

I bought this as well for socks?shawlette?This was in the sale and was only £4 per hank for 100g.It is 75% wool,25% polyamide.A bargain ,I think.

I had time to browse and spotted this lace yarn.They don't usually have laceweight and i couldn't resist.This is70% alpaca,25% silk and 5% cashmere.I keep touching it ,it is so soft.This is going to be for a shawl.
I have definitely got my mojo back.I have started my crocheted cardie in DK cotton,have got some crochet squares to do and this month's blanket square.
We are very proud that our daughter did the Race for Life on Sunday and raised £150 for cancer Reasearch.She isn't very fit,doesn't have time but she did the 6K in 46 minutes.Well done Sarah!I intend to di it next year but I shall walk.


  1. Mmmm it all looks lovely! I haven't seen any manos lace weight yet - I must pop over to Stash soon!

    Glad to hear you found your mojo - when I was a child we could buy them 2 for 1p in our local sweet shop!

    Am working away on the crochet marabella caplet and also a shawl.....more soon x

  2. Oh I meant to say - I love the arucania yarn but take care as it felts - I made some socks and they shrank and felted. It will be lovely for a shawl though. If I had washed the socks by hand they might have been ok.

  3. Love the colours of all the yarn. I remember Mojos as well - used to love them as a kid.

    I won some Arucania from Knit Today - it's sitting in the stash cupboard waiting for inspiration to strike :)
