A day in my office is not anything terribly exciting most days.
But a search for yarn stores in the area turned up a listing under Army & Navy, which is a department store in the local mall.
After work, I am always up for an explore, even if it means a bit of a rush since most things around here seem to close down at 1730. Gave me enough time to pick up another type of chutney and get to the back of the top floor where it turns out that they carry a limited supply of Rowan, Pattons and (? I have already forgotten).
On the table were several piles of new pattern books (or at least ones that I had not seen before). Including Rowan’s Studio Issue 8 which had three items I could see wearing. Scottish Aran was not an option (the original yarn) but there was this very nice red
which I am planning on turning into the Kimono Waistcoat. The cabled waistcoat(no bobbles) and the bolero are also possibilities later this year.
Hot Target by Suzanne Brockmann. Might as well go through the series in the correct order.
And now it is time to take a break from socks and cast on! And a break from colour work.
