Nope it’s not a sheep! I wish…
Now that I’ve made some room for incoming woolly purchases from the Sheep Show, my focus has turned to: What shall I buy?!
Because no one ‘needs’ to buy anymore yarn (especially me), I figure if at least I have some ideas about what I might need, rather than no idea at all, I perhaps will make some discerning choices.
So here’s what I’ll be stalking at the show:
Some glitz! I don’t have any glitz at all and I would like to try blending some into a batt on my new drum carder. Perhaps some other fancy fibres would be fun too.
Some 4 ply wool for Romi Hill’s ‘Happenstance’ Shawl.
A jumper’s worth of semi-solid wool for me. I’m not too fussed about the colour, I’ll know it when I see it. Perhaps I should have a pattern picked out before I go…
I would dearly love some attractive wooden sock blockers, but I don’t recall anyone stocking them from years past.
I don’t really need anything else. So the remainder of my shopping will be made up of things I simply could not leave behind, very dangerous I know. Wish me luck!
This was last years haul:
Some of these things have been used already! Stop sniggering…
I wonder what I’ll come home with this year?
