So I am a little bit excited. A few days ago one of my friends made the snap decision that she wanted to go to Wonderwool, and we have decided to do the road trip to Wales to squidge yarn and generally be a bit silly. An added bonus is that Sam from Unbelieva-wool will also be there so we can talk shop a little bit.
Sam has recently come up with two new shawl designs – one knitted and another crocheted – to add to her existing Cascade shawl design (which is 50% off at the moment!). I tested the newest crochet shawl for her – this has been named the Revolution shawl, and I love it. It is a great shape and has wonderful drape to it. I had the pleasure of being a pattern tester for this one and I can testify to it being a straightforward one to do, and it looks amazing. My pictures don’t really do it justice.
She is taking her new designs, along with my Thank You shawl and the Bobble Wrap, to Wonderwool. I have decided to celebrate this weekend by applying an automatic 50% discount to all my patterns in Ravelry this weekend. So if there is one you have been toying with getting, grab it now if you can.
Anyway, I love going on road trips like this one. I get to be passenger this time so I have some quality hooky time in the car on the way up and back. I do need to set a budget for this and stick to it. I have a stash to bust, so I really do have to be strong! So only the really special stuff is likely to come home with me. That’s the plan anyway. Naturally, you will be the first to learn if I stuck to this!
I hope to put up a little quick stashbusting pattern on the blog this weekend if I have the time so watch this space!
