So, yesterday I went to York and paid them a little visit here:
|Yarn ball ice creams!|
The lovely Ramshambles, which I have been meaning to visit since it re-opened. (It was previously Sheepish which I had popped into a couple of times).
The staff were really lovely and we chattered a little about ravelry and I joined their group using my phone just as I left the shop (here) and they have the most Noro I have ever seen, ever, there is a whole bay and a half of shelving with it in, it was cool! I didn't get any though because I got these instead.
|The colours are a bit funny :S|
|Yes that is a button from my last post making it look like a face :)|
I popped into the Bead Hive which is located up near the Minster and York St John University (next to the National Trust Gift Shop) and got a deal on a load of beads, it was 10g for £1 but 30g for £2.50 so of course I had to take advantage, I don't know if they will all be for knitting but some will be!I recieved a few other things this week, but through the post, not from visits. I invested in a few books that I have heard loads about, and which I will probably discuss in more detail in the future.

And finally I invested in several new Knit Pro Metal needles, both Sock DPN's and interchangeables for projects I have in my queue. It seems I cannot use Addi needles to save my life, but Knit pro metal needles I am ok with, not as quick or as sure as using my wooden and acrylic needles, but I am getting there.Now to see what progress comes from it all! I love setting things up so I have an idea of what I could cast on next.
