Hello everyone…just a short update…been knitting a couple of scarves over Christmas holidays after finding some wonderful yarns at a LYS called “Mad About Ewe” in Nanaimo! I should have pictures tomorrow… These scarves are definitely a “treat” as the yarns in LYSs tend not to be inexpensive…LOL Oh well, I had a lovely time and will go back again…they are having a 20-70% off sale starting January 3rd! People apparently line up for an hour before the store even opens for this sale. I’m hoping to get some handpainted wool/silk blend that’s made in Eastern Canada on that day…they come in skeins of 500 m which is just outrageous but wonderful for making a few scarves. The colourways are gorgeous! I did get some Addi Turbos and have been using them for my Cardi KAL but have yet to figure out what the fuss is all about…my Denise needles seem to be just as good…oh well, it’s all about personal tastes and I love that knitters can get anything they want to enjoy their knitting experience.
