Tea Party

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to have afternoon tea and cake with the lovely Ysolda. Ysolda was at the Town Hall
 in Reading for the afternoon as part of her UK tour. She had with her samples of her designs and was on hand to sign copies of her book.
There was also the opportunity to buy hand-dyed yarn from
Skein Queen. I have been tempted a few times over the last few months but this was the first time I have got to see the yarn. So with Christmas coming I had an excuse – 2 skeins are for socks for David and 1 for me.

Skein 1 for David – Autumn Blaze in the Blissful yarn. 100% British Blue Faced Leicester in a 4 ply sock weight.

Skein 2 for David – Windfall also in the Blissful yarn.

skein 3 is for me – Smoked Salmon in the Enchant yarn.

I haven’t wound these yet as I still have socks on the needles and am trying to be tough with myself when it comes to starting something new when there are already “projects” on the needles.

Happy Knitting
