Yarns & Darns – 23rd April 2011

Today we had a quick trip down to Lincolnshire to visit family. As we were driving through Folkingham I spotted a wool shop from the road so had to pull off to take a peek.  Mini-me did not find it funny that I could find a LYS miles from home! It turned out that the proprietor had only started trading in yarn three weeks previously and is specialising in Manos del Uruguay yarn and Brittany needles – both products that I love! Lovely coffee shop too, so recommended if you happen to be passing through Folkingham in Lincolnshire any time. It is on the market place just along from Hansens Chocolate Shop, famed for gorgeous hand made chocolates, which might tempt one to take a slight diversion! Unfortunatley, the shop “Yarns and Darns” doesn’t have an internet presence yet so I can’t provide a link.

I do love this product though and had it been payday would have been swayed by the pattern for a baby papoose and matching snugglebunny in Hummingbird Double Knit alpaca yarn. I loved the turtledove colourway!
