Had a lovely morning with two of my best knitting friends, enjoying tea and muffins and then doing a little yarn shopping at one of my favorite stores.
I picked up this little pompom hat kit from Phildar:
And some intriguing, woodland coloured Silk & Blue Faced Leicester fibre from West Coast Colour & Carding:
I also made a third attempt at starting my Redy sweater, this time with one strand of Berroco Ultra Alpaca and one strand of Rowan Kidsilk Haze:
I think this is the winning combination! I owe a huge thanks to my friend Canadianneedles for the mohair - she had it in her stash and donated it to my project. She is an awesome friend!
