Bananarama - part 1

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.

Banana silk? Sounds fascinating, I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Thanks for your comments on my last post, finding happy thoughts is helping a lot.

lol - I read that as a family from Glasgow, not a family of foxes in Glasgow. Must remember to point and read!!

Must get over to KI yarns some day - only bought from her on the internet and it so not the same!

We've been watching Springwatch too, after a hiatus last year when Bill Oddie became so obnoxious I couldn't take it anymore! But this year it was again a pleasure (in some ways...) to watch. Poor owl chicks - as if it's not difficult enough to survive, without being predated by your own sibling! Takes sibling rivalry to a whole new level... But the foxes were lovely to watch.

Sorry about being slack on the comments, still nursing sickly chicken - but hopefully will be back to commenting more regularly :)

P.s. the strawberries and cream sound delicious - is it just me, or does it seem about time for Wimbledon?!
