Sale yarn

Here, at last, is the yarn I got from Get Knitted at Bristol. It was incredibly cheap in the sale.

As usual I spent far more than I should have done (my children will have to go without shoes this winter) but I could have spent a lot more.

I am particularly fond of the cashmere merino silk Aran in both colours. I envisage a cardi for hubby, one for one of my sons and something stripey. They are such good colours.

I also bought some dk cotton both organic and soya. Has anyone knitted with either of these? I don't think the photos are terribly good because it was getting quite late and the sun wasn't quite as bright as it had been so the colours are not as clear as I would have hoped.

Sublime organic cotton dk
Shade 92 Borage

Sublime Cashmere merino silk aran
Shade 0056
A sort of browny colour

Sublime soya cotton dk
Shade 148 Pool

Sublime cashmere merino silk aran
Shade 0060
A lovely blue

I hope you can see the beauty of the yarn. I am really looking forward to knitting with it. But at the moment I am content to just squeeze the aran every so often.

Also, I don't know how I got blue writing at the top of this post. Please excuse it and hopefully normal service will be resumed next time.
