Temptation Central...

As dear husband had a business appointment in Joure this morning, and I am his personal chauffeur, I was looking for a nice place to go in the meantime. And when you say Joure, you say Ajoure! A lovely store filled to the brim with yarn! I had never been before, but had heard raving reviews from fellow knitters from the area. And it still managed to exceed my expectations! As I was on a 'budget' - with the Breidagen in a few weeks' time - I only got enough yarn for my new mittens and a skein of sock yarn.
With the Cashmerino, I'll be knitting these lovelies... And now I'm home I realize I should have probably bought a second ball of white. Ach well... I'll just start them and if I run out, I can get a ball at the Breidagen :D
The Tausendschon is the same type of yarn I knit my Hat Heel socks with. I just loved that yarn, so I got a different colour combo to knit up some more lovely warm socks. Despite it nearly being Spring, it is still cold enough to need socks!
Oh, and what do you guys think of the new blog design? I love it!
Now, a quick bit of work while the kids are having fun with stamps, paper and pencils, and then it's back to my sewing machine, as I have to get started on my new Spring coat!

Great stash enhancement! I love Debbie Bliss yarn.

How about new career as a specialized taxi driver - just for locations near yarn shops?
I knit a pair of fingerless mitts from one ball of Baby Cashmerino, with quite a bit left over. So maybe there is enough white for your adorable mittens.

Mooie nieuwe look op je blog! Een nieuwe paradijsje gevonden voor garens. Jij breit/naait toch wel snel genoeg om het nog allemaal af te krijgen voor het echt lente wordt.
Wordt de jas (weer) roze??

I'm still on a yarndiet.
