Poppy`s at Colliergate, York

This was the shop I, in October, had three pairs of socks displayed. When I came to collect them, I got compliments for them.

The York Wool Shop

Located in the heart of the city of York, Ramshambles can be found in York's world famous, picturesque medieval street; Shambles - this year's winner of Google's most picturesque street in Britain.

Bought two skeins of this lovely yarn at Ramshambles - The York wool Shop. The actual color is more bluegreen.

Bolero for oldest daughter

Yarn: Drops alpaca and Drops Kid-Silk

Needles: 4.5mm

I actually ended up knitting two of this bolero. The first one seemed to be a bit too small for daughter when it was finished a year ago. I made another one, which has been ready for a while now. Recently daughter was home and finally could have her bolero, she ended up fitting the one I made first, as the second one was a bit too big.

Loop scarf for oldest daughter

Loved to knit this scarf. Will definitely make more of it, if I get hold of more of this yarn.
