Back Home

Hi everyone, am back from my hols in Ambleside. It was a lovely break though unfortunately my dog became very unwell on our last night and had to be rushed to the vet in the early hours. We really thought we were going to lose her but thankfully she is now back to her pretty self! Seems she ate something she shouldn’t have, no idea what it was but it made her very sick for a week. Anyway, she’s better now, phew!

While in Cumbria, we took a trip north of Keswick to a small  village called Caldbeck to visit…yep… a wool shop! It is called The Wool Clip and sold many pretty things made locally and using local wool. Yes, I did treat myself to some Herdwick yarn. It it’s a bit coarser than other yarns so more suitable for home wares than clothing.

I love Cumbria, such a beautiful part of the UK. Our holiday cottage was above the town and had fab views…..

Will be returning one day.

This weekend, I managed to buy even more wool!! I discovered that there was a wool show nearby called Proper Woolly and had to go. What a choice of yarn! My best find was some Jacob wool that comes from sheep I actually drive past once a week. Pretty local! I also bought some gorgeous linen thread from namolio and some beautifully dyed wool from a chap in Wales…..

It’s been a while since I finished a project but hope to have a completed bunny this week. Will show you when done. 🙂
