You would not believe the amount of time I spent faffing about

You would not believe the amount of time I spent faffing about at my cousin’s house on Sunday morning with all my #Yarndale #yarn, trying to make a Y, and then a y. Neither quite showed off all the colours in the same way as this classic yarn-in-a-bag-on-a-patio-table-on-flagstones shot. I’ve tagged the yarn producers in the pic, but clockwise from top we have: @knittingtastic’s #DaughterofaShepherd wool, enough for a classic crew-neck jumper; @theknittinggoddess’s new stripey DK, in Gold and Silver (to be socks — or armwarmers, just like the ones Joy was wearing); my MEGABRIGHT skein of #sockyarn from #FiveMoons; next up is a #jumper kit from @poloetcie’s Polo&Co (more on this soon, I am #swatching tonight); the turquoise in the centre is @sylvie_labellevie’s new Fjord colourway; and the pinky and red skeins are from @yarnsfromtheplain, who had a whole rainbow of loveliness. So that’s only one #skein of sockyarn and a jumper over my planned list. There’s also an invisible lot of yarn from @woosheeps, who had a tough time with his card machine on the Saturday. They will be another #Relax top, my third. Autumn and winter #knitting: sorted. Not pictured are a print from @julietillyflop and a scissor pouch from @beyond_measure_uk. More thoughts on the day will appear in tomorrow’s post — I really want to knit that swatch. What on earth has happened to me?? #knitter #knitting #knitstagram #knittersofinstagram #wool #daughterofashepherd #poloandco #phileasyarns #yarnsfromtheplain #yarndalehaul #yarndale16 #rollon2017
