I was very sad to discover this weekend that one of my favoit LYS had closed. I was on the search for some black, feltable yarn to make myself a litle cloche. I went out to my two favorit yarn stores, to discover one had been turned into a quiliting store! I was so sad, it carried my favorit brand of circular needles and had some very nice yarn (Cascade, Debbie Bliss, the list could go on..). However, I finnaly got a chance to go out to a new LYS that has thaken the place of the one I just lost.

It is amazing. One wall of Cascade 220 in a rainbow of colours. Plus Koigue(spelt wrong I’m sure, but this is the first place that I have found to carry it!) Plus Lorna’s lace, Debbie Bliss and much more! I also saw roving, lots of books and self-dyeing kits!! I could only spend a few moments there getting my yarn, but I can’t wait to go and spend hours there. Plus, they wind your yarn while you wait in the line to pay!

So far, so good for knitting. I finnished that blue scarf, and have decided to keep it. It looks nice with my red coat and is very warm. I also started the I Live On A Farm hat, but I don’t think I will do the optional band, I love the look of seed stitch! And the little white scarf is on hold, because I found an adorable cloche hat pattern on Craftster saturday night, which lead me on my yarn hunt. It is in the washing machine at the moment, and I really hope it works about because it looked a bit small to be felted………. oh well I have plenty of yarn if I need to make a bigger one. I’m always nervous when I felt things but I love felting.

jupiterjessica, the pattern for the Hermione hat can be found here:

Isn’t it beautiful? There is also a matching mitten pattern! I just love Harry Potter knits 🙂

Well that’s all for now, I will update you about the hat and will add pictures of my two recent FO’s.
