Alice and I went on a little half term trip to London yesterday. We made a pact that we would do this on one of my 3 days off this week and our number one priority was to go to Liberty for the very first time. I've wanted to peruse their halls of fabric, stationary and yarn for a very long time now and it did not disappoint. I do recommend a visit if you find yourself in central London.
The fabric, alas was rather pricey so I didn't indulge for we went on our day trip on a wee budget but we did come away with a little bag filled with affordable goodies. A treat for Alice and a treat for me.
Ok, so I treated myself to the obvious. Well,you know what they say about an addiction :o)
We truly had a beautiful mummy - daughter day out and saw fabulous city sites on the double decker buses (I try and avoid the tubes if possible) and had a lovely dinner in Pizza Express with some of our Tesco clubcard vouchers (£10 in vouchers = £40 in Pizza Express vouchers...hoooray). Alice also got to meet a singer called Rebecca Ferguson in the Vivienne Westwood section of Selfridges which made her smile a whole lot.
She was a little star struck, bless her heart.
I also bought a copy of this book too, it's a little gem that I've had my eye on and oops it just happened to slip into my basket.
My little crafty book collection appears to be enlarging somewhat and there are still so many that I would like. Pass me my wish list for Santa please.
We do love a little trip to London and look forward to our next visit when we plan to go back for a visit to the Tate Modern.
Now after me blurbing on about the big smoke, let me show you my little give-away. I bought 3 balls of this yarn a few weeks ago and after desperately trying to knit with it, I gave up. Skinny yarn and I do not mix it seems :0( So, without further ado would you like your name to be entered into a hat for a little give-away?
It's 50% acrylic, 30% mohair and 20% wool. It looks bluey-green-grey in colour. You'll receive 2 complete balls and 1 almost complete one(minus about 5 meter's I frogged and threw away because it all knotted up) plus some 5mm vintage needles as the recommended size knitting needles for this yarn and a little something else, not sure what yet, a little surprise from me.
All you have to do is pop a comment onto this post and let me know if you fancy being in the draw for this yarn. If you don't have a blog, leave your email in a comment so I can contact you if your name is pulled out the hat. Fancy this yarn? Go on, give it a go.
Thanks for visiting and
See you all soon
