On the way home tonight I took a short detour to the Wool Shop.
I’ve been playing around with a design for a scarf made up of motifs and I’m finally ready to get crocheting.
I want to make one for myself, and one as a gift.
The wool shop is full of all sorts of yarny loveliness. After having a good look around I settled on 3 balls of my old favourite Sublime Extra Fine Merino and a yarn that is new to me, Debbie Bliss Andes.
The Andes is beautiful, it has a sheen to it and is very soft and warm. Coincidently that lady in the shop had just used it to make a scarf and she was very pleased with it.
The colour range is gorgeous. They had some lovely plum and green shades that I was tempted by.
I wanted a slightly darker brown in the Sublime but they didn’t have it in stock. However, I’m pretty sure that these colours will work.
