Wool shopping



It's great to be in a place where sock wool is so commonplace that it's available in any of the small or medium-sized stores around here. Needless to say, I made on and restocked with a few balls. Some of it I've had before - the Blauband yarn in the slim balls is very good to use and comes in some delightful tweeds and mixtures - above there's a couple of balls of navy blue flecked with rainbow colours and some fairly plain bottle green (which is intended to become a lace shawl). But I've not used the 6-ply Regia and will be pleased of any advice re size of needles/pointers to a good pattern for it. I also found the two brightly coloured cottons, labelled "Potholder yarn". Perhaps a couple of dishcloths a la Mason-Dixon will appear shortly?

I also found a bag of cream/white buttons for just SFR5 (about £2.50). Don't know what will become of those but it seemed like too good a bargain to pass by.
