When I'm lucky enough to get to Stitch, I always treat myself to something cheery-uppy. I cannot recommend Jocelyn's shop enough, truly - on that or any other front.
Even when you take your stuff out of the bag at home, it looks peaceful. (There was actually a bottle of Soak wash in there too but I'd put it into the laundry room by the time I took these pictures.)
I was excited to hear that Malabrigo has just started to produce roving, not least because I'm spinning more lately. I love Malabrigo's colours and how incredibly soft the yarns are, but I'd stopped knitting with them because I don't enjoy the variegation. I was even more excited to notice some gorgeous natural fiber woven ribbons on spools in the back room. I just didn't notice until I got home that the ribbons and roving I chose, match.
As always: I brought home some fabric. I think I might be using these pieces to learn quilting by way of making new cushion covers for the living room sofa.
But the unexpected find was this beautiful thin wool-blend felt from Heather Bailey, which I'll use to make homey little ornaments. I really love doing blanket stitch - so soothing - and it will be great to have some new reasons to do it.
Since I was at the store last weekend I've already spun and knit the roving, and I'll tell you that story tomorrow. Till then, have a great, crafty day!
