This is Knit......................

I finally got to go to the lovely yarn shop near my Aunt in Blackrock, Co Dublin. This is Knit. I met the lovely Lisa and Jacqui in the shop on Sunday morning. It was so lovely to talk face to face with human beings who didn't think I'd forgotten my pills when talking about sock yarn, Knitty, Yarn Forward etc. Heaven............and all that lovely yarn to squeeze in person. No one looking as if I was tring to shoplift because I fondled the yarn. I'm hoping to get back for a crochet for beginners class in June..........here's hoping. They also are an online shop with their own blog. :)

This is the Stash! :D

In answer to your post we live about 13 miles from Porthmadog up in the Vale of Ffestiniog and I am originally from Borth-y-Gest a mile out of Port. There are so many lovely places for you to see in a small area here ; fingers crossed that you get the good weather so you can see it in all its glory

I treated myself to ONE skein of L&L in Motherlode to knit a couple of little neck tie scarves and I fell in love. Smashing stash.

Hi, I just read your comment on my blog, sorry to take so long to reply!! The quilt is a design by a friend of mine. She has an on line shop, sunflower fabrics. You can get all her patterns through this. BTW, these yarns are beautiful!
