So I head up to the Westend today, stopping by Katherines shop after a lovely lunch at North Star - the Celeraic soup and soda bread was D.I.V.I.N.E! - and I found the Banana silk. Its made entirely from Banana fibres, is a slubby chunky type fibre with a wonderful sheen - How could I resist?
However, across from the Banana silk was some new fyberspates in some gorgeous variegated colours, spun from Bluefaced leicester and silk - boy its so SOFT! I'm in love. In the end the Banana silk won - will be back soon for some gorgeous fyberspates . Also bought some of the Mango Moon lycra yarn to give the BF some "memory", ,as it could grow and grow with its weight .
The 4 ply is still coming on well - will be getting back to it after this, or rather my Perthshire strawberries and jersey thick cream (its so thick and yummy it looks buttery )
Will be taking in a bit of the BBC's Springwatch - watch the kiddies version of this on Cbeebies, and now I have the grownup, violent version. One wee moorhen chick ended up as dinner for a buzzard chick. There is a family of foxes in Glasgow being filmed too - its very entertaining, one wifie feeds the old fox some dog food as it stands on top of her car!
Well back to the knitting.
