Oh no, my suitcase won’t close!

Yarn sales while you are away from home are dangerous.  I think we might need to send ahead a box of presents and yarn…

First there was this sock yarn half price…

And you know how much I like knitting socks!!

And then there was a yarn sale of massive proportions. My only mistake was taking a baby with me – she fell asleep in the car and slept peacefully in my arms while I shopped and waited in the mother of all queues. Except that only left me with one arm for yarn… Darn it! 

I got this for a Heather hoodie vest.

And, well, I guess I bought this for me stash…

There is enough for a sweater, probably not a hoodie though – it’s Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran weight, and I love the colourway – even if it does remind me *just a bit* of the alpaca I have waiting for me at home…

Right, off to pack – we head home tomorrow. The kids are looking forward to heading home, and Miss 3 wants to see what her sunflower is up to.

    Ooh, pretty!

    Although sounds like maybe it was a good thing that toddler was asleep in your arms. 🙂

    Ooh – if you need a home for the Jo Sharp, let me know. They don’t sell the Jo Sharp in Hamilton, and I am dyeing to do a tweed something. My dream wool is the rowan tweed… Droooool.
    But I love that lot of yours, and the rest is nice too!

    Good work at the sale! I bought a bit too, but mostly stuff to dye.
    Hope your trip home is good and your garden is in full flourish!
