Spring is coming, there is a faint haze of green on the Birches near the Farnborough North Train Station. It is a different line than the one that I ordinarily take. No parking near, I met up with another knitter and we hiked to the station past interesting houses
On our way to Reading, we went a bit early so that I could see the two main yarn locations in town. There is a John Lewis of course. If you want Rowan or Debbie Bliss, you can always find it here. But much more fun is Jacksons which is one of those old fashioned stores that carries linens, uniforms, hats, gloves, household goods, foundation garments, sewing and dressmaking supplies. And it carries yarn. Not just some of the fancies, but pattern leaflets and shelfs stuffed with bag lots of yarn. Natural fibers packed in next to high quality acrylics there were some nice bargains which I resisted.
And then there is this interesting building
which houses the Town Hall, a theater, a gallery, a free museum, a nice (but slow) little café and a group of knitters/crocheters which get together on the second Sat(?). Of course, I didn’t get my camera out to grab a picture till every one was packing up.
