Beautiful yarn.

I have had my usual walk and whist day today and arrived home to find the postie had left this lovely parcel of wool that I had ordered.  The wool looks so pretty and the presentation is nice too..It is a real pleasure opening a nicely wrapped parcel of wool. The organza bag will come in very useful too.. I will keep my pretty hand made socks in it. As soon as I have finished the pair that is currently on the needles I will make a start on the 'red, white and blue' yarn for Tony. I have no idea how the pattern will form so it will be fun knitting it.

  1. That is the best post, I love those squishy parcels. ZigZag yarn makes lovely socks, sturdy and hard wearing and still soft.

    1. I haven't tried this brand of wool for socks so that is reassuring to know. I was amazed at how cheap it was too.

  2. Looks like Wool Warehouse? I love that company. They have such bargains in yarn and always send the yarn in a lovely organza bag. The yarn you bought looks gorgeous! x

  5. Love rainbow yarn. It is what my mum used to teach me to knit. Came in quarter ounce balls then. The Fluffies arrive in just under an hour.xxx
