One knit day out my friend Jo took me to ‘The Yarn Gallery“. In a converted brick forge, peeping out from wooden cubby holes, lay a myriad hand dyed skeins. Loop yarns glowed, silk floss twinkled, colours of seascapes, earth, sun and heath. I bought 50g of Breeze (70% super kid mohair 30% silk) in Sunset and made this. A giant triangle shawl. 95 blissful inches of garter stitch. Ease and glamour.
The shop is moving house now and you can have some of these luscious threads on the cheap as they are doing 20% any internet orders you might place in the next 2 weeks. CHQ20 is the not so secret code. You are guaranteed something beautiful even before you’ve cast a stitch.
