Because a holiday isn’t complete without new yarn!
Colours in the above photo, in order from left to right, are clematis, duck egg, parma violet, lobelia and sage.
I bought these from Country Wools here in the island of Jersey. They have a good range of yarns including, you guessed it, Stylecraft. I made sure to buy colours that I don’t already have and that I can add to my bag of Special DK when I get home.
It was a hot sunny day today and ds1 and I enjoyed some shady valley walking, a picnic in the park, and some exploring of an old fort. If we’d have had swimsuits with us, we’d have gone in the sea too. Actually he did, later in the day, after I’d dropped him off back at his granddad’s and I returned to my mum’s to cook dinner. Bet that sea was cold!
We’re nearing the end of our holiday now and it’s been great to spend time with family and see more of the island where I grew up.
