Ohh and even more London, Stash! Part 4.

Clever shop, STASH yarns in Richmond. About a kilometers walk. Dearest HPNYKnits found this little gem, which was filled with american goodies, so of course, nothing for a New Yorker! But, I didn't go on Ally Pally, and had no classes (I will next year), so I thought a little excursion would be fine, before we metup to see the London Craft show (the latter no picture, but great stuff! Really fancy textiles and ceramics!) So, it is a fab yarn shop for the rich. It was just so expensive I GASPED. On the other hand, I did found a lot of colour varieties that I missed at the show. Sohave a close look at this shelfs. Im sure that your best creditcard could help you survive.
Definitely a must for a London traveller. It was not so bad actually took me 2 hours back and forth from central (Picadilly), but ok, I was lingering in this shop. Nice owners! Check them out!
They were nice, and definitely sharing my taste of great yarn! So what did I get, Hmm, One skein of Cashmere in Turquoise (small skein in middle) up left is from the show. No, I will present these little gems much better, one by one. This is not all stash I got ehh, Not on picture is Trekking (Yes, I will KAL too ;-) and a whole bag of Harris yarn from Liberty. Which (when I came home, was NOT the complementing yarn I thought I had. The other one was yorkshire tweed, which was much thinner and better quality/shimmer, ok, I will ignore it, but it is irritating, and of course colours are off!). So In the stash is Lorna's Lace, Nickerjack and hand-dyed silk from Canada. Ahh, It was such a great trip. Links fixed and brain semi screwed on. We did mast-off our sailingboat today. And I have a cold coming up, and a short trip to Finland. Then some workshop. Oh, I'm so tired. But Im working on my knitting, slowly, but surely...

I love the wool you bought. I must go to the knitting show next year. What are you doing in Finland? Is it cold where you are yet? Today was our first cool day here in England.

I still love the top row, 2nd from left skein--blues w/green and light yellow green. Rotten luck about your Harris yarn, maybe it should 'mature' a little in the stash!;)

Jäklar så underbara garner, ser fram emot att se vad det ska bli av dem. Vill också till London!
