The Yarn Whisperer

I have a LYS. 

My very own LYS!! SQUEEEEAAAAAL!!!!

Stash Yarns are located in Putney, and I have to say they are lovely!! They are also online so check them out here

The owner was ok when I fondled. She was ok when I rubbed the beautiful Handmaiden seasilk & Shibuiknits on my bosom. And the Mission Falls, well lets just say I got up close and personal!! ;)

And then I got the best knitting tip ever. When you knit your gauge, wear it inside you bra to make sure it doesn't itch your sensitive bits. Kinky I know, but you just know it feels soooooo good!

I bought some of this Fybrespates Dream sock yarn. Hand dyed in Wales, it is made from the wool of Bluefaced Leicester sheep. i really have to check these sheep out! It is so soft and squishy and the two colourways I bought are beautiful. I love this yarn! Sigh, they are only temporarily in my stash as they are to be gifted to a couple of gorgeous knitters I know.

I can't believe how good I was in this store! They had Shibuiknits in the store!! AND Koigu in colours I love!!! But I abstained. for the time being anyway!!

I will go back there very soon and buy some koigu for me. And some Art yarns. And some Shibuiknits. And some Mission Falls. And then there was the Blue sky Alpacas...............

oh you sounds so happy Shaz! What a gorgeous LYS and what lovely purchases.

Swatch against boobage? I'm going to try it just so I can see what it's like. Kinky? Moi?

Yay for LYS!

Now as for the swatch in the bra...sounds like it could almost be an idea from the very Shazmina herself ;)

SO JEALOUS!!! (not that I already wasn't jealous, but now even more so!). And yeah, I can't believe that you didn't already put your swatches down your top, quite frankly!!! Tee hee!

Oh, I'm so glad you've found such a great LYS nearby - and what lovely yarns! Great tip too about the gauge swatch (and only *slightly* kinky ;)

MAN! How lucky are you?? I went into that over-priced [not so] LYS last week - it was... BORING!
