Everything reminds me of food!

I went to a get together yesterday in Swindon for members of the Crafty Threads 'n' Yarn forum and had a fab day. Some of the members who own shops had taken along some woolly goodies to sell, others who couldn't be there had sent some in the post. While I was there I bought these gorgeous skeins of yarn - unfortunately, all the colours are reminding me of food!


First up is some 100% merino sock yarn from Yarn Addict Anni which reminds me of those Fruit Salad chews I had when I was a kid.

And this is what it looks like wound into a nice cake -






Next is a skein of Bright Dyes pure merino 4ply. In the skein, this reminded me of an autumnal woodland walk. However, now I've started knitting it, it reminds me of mint choc chip icecream!



I'm making a multi-directional scarf on 3.5mm needles and love the way it's striping.

I also bought another skein of Bright Dyes yarn - this gorgeous blue colour - which actually doesn't remind me of anything edible (yet!) but I just love the gorgeous colour.

And again, here it is in a nice little cake -



While I was there, I bought some Yarnimals which are just soooooo cute. :0)

Chicken stitchmarkers because DS (age 5) reckons I'm exactly like Babs from Chicken Run because I knit "all the time, everywhere"! *LOL*

And sheep earrings. Why? It's a Welsh thing! ;0)

I just love the expressions on their faces!






While I was there yesterday, I managed to finish the second November Blues sock for DS. It's made with Sirdar Town and Country sock yarn on 2 x 2.5 mm Addi Turbo circs.

I was so pleased because I managed to line up the stripes without much faffing about at all. :0)














And lastly I want to say a big thanks to Debz for driving yesterday and also for letting everyone have a set of her stitchmarkers *free of charge*.

I had these gorgeous red ones.


Debz - you really must get these on Etsy - now!! *LOL*






And another big thank you to Debz and Lane (her sister) for this gorgeous necklace which they brought back for me from the Hobbycrafts/Stitching show in Cardiff recently.


This is beautiful - just my colours - and I'll be wearing it to work tomorrow.












So a fantastic day was had by all yesterday. Thanks to Granny Smith and everyone who organised the food - it was delicious! Now, when's the next one? ......................... ;0)

i love that green brown yarn, it is like mint choc chip ice cream, or maybe them green and brown humbug things.
i am still thinking of opening and etsy shop, not sure though as there seems to be a lot of stitcmarkers on them and much more professional looking than mine.

It was lovely meeting you yesterday. I've just come off the phone telling my SIL about yesterday thinking she would think I was mad to go all the way to Swindon (from Cornwall) to knit & chat all afternoon, but it was a fantastic afternoon. Love the mint choc chip yarn. I quite often end up naming my yarn after edible things. Don't know why. Supoose it's the deliciousness of it.

Debz and Sharon's stitchmarkers are both gorgeous. I've got a big collection of Yarnimals now. And I've got those sheep earrings too. I wore them yesterday.

I am so jealous I could not go, as for the scarf have you forgotten to multi direction on the third section? just a guess and I am so glad you like the yarn
