En-joy-ing Shopping

My super-secret yarn buying the other day was to get a hostess gift for my friend who we were staying with on our wee jaunt away. Thus I couldn’t share it until I’d given it to her! And what yarn buying expedition is complete without a little something for yourself?

This is what arrived in my mailbox:


Left to right: Anna Gratton Heathered Yarn – a 4 ply that I think my hostess might like to dye, centre is a Vintage Purls colourway JOY which is exclusive to the place I purchased the yarn (all for me!) and left is a Vintage Purls standard colourway Into the Deep.  Both of these are sock yarn, and are sooo lovely to knit up.

And, thanks so much to James at Joy of Yarn – a total pleasure to deal with.  Imagine: a NZ based shop and website dedicated just to sock yarn! The website was easy to navigate, Paypal worked smoothly, delivery was prompt and beautifully presented. The wee gift (of GloHeart lollies) and hand written note were a  lovely touch. A very en-joy-able yarn shopping experience.

    I DO love it. It’s kept within an arm’s reach for fondling. 😀
