The Red Shawl Day Out♥
I heard that we were getting a new yarn store earlier last year but got so bogged down with work that i totally forgot. So when i randomly found her store during a Google search ( must be FATE) i got so overwhelmed that i shopped online (www.pashminacaprice.com there 3 times in a single week & as if that was not enough to top it all i decided to go there on Friday so i could drink in the atmosphere Live & buy even more yarn !
As you can see from the photo, i was very excited. Very excited indeed with my armful of Phildar yarns. I suppose i got carried away because we did not have any GOOD yarn stores in our area until Pashmina Caprice came along & i have not been able to knit with Phildar for 20 +years & Natalie's Top Selling Brand is Phildar Looks like i found my knit heaven.....as my husband says 'OH NO' !
Your probably wondering why i buy yarn when i own a mill.....that's what he is thinking.
He being my Hubby Gilbert, he smiles a lot but I'm sure he thinks I'm crackers !
Anyway this is what i purchased-(types of yarn that we do NOT Manufacture)
A hand made Wristlet bag, made from Phildar yarns & soda Can pull tabs hand made by a local crafty gal-$25.00,
3 balls of Phildar Rapido in Carmin colour-$7.50 ball,
5 balls of Tornade- Automne colour-$7.50 each,
6 balls of Myriade in Meteore colour-$11.85 each .
Not seen in photo- 5 balls of Rapido in Chanvre colour-$7.50 each,
4 balls of Rapido in Lichen-$7.50 each
& lastly 4 balls of Tornade in Meteore colour-$7.50 for a shawl I'm knitting.
Natalie has very reasonable prices & her online flat rate shipping fee's are very reasonable too
Orders are shipped out same day !
I was looking for an idea for this months blog post so it had to be the Red Shawl. One winner will be drawn at random to win the Tomato red shawl ( a new shawl not used, knit from the same batch of yarn) The fibre content is: 90% Merino-10% silk. Has a lovely soft handle & drape to it. The yarn is a very lightweight 3 ply so its quite sturdy & not prone to clicks & pulls. Sorry no shawl pin you will have to provide your own. As you can see I'm not small, quite chubby,(my hubby says I'm Cuddly) The shawl is quite a generous size & should fit almost everyone !
