I was actually fairly controlled . . . So many beautiful colour combinations appealed. Tam was more frugal still (she and J are saving for a house of their own) and just bought one skein to knit a hat with. These are my choices. Sarah from Sussex may be responsible for one decision!!
I love these colours and this was in the reduced bin - only £10.
I love this combination of colours. Socks I think . . .
The colour in the bottom right photo is the yarn I bought. I should have looked at the pattern on the day as it needed 2 mini skeins of a different colour for the inner brim. I looked up on line to choose these, and found that with postage (that was £4, a little steep) this would cost me over £16! So the brim will be the same colour, plenty of yarn in the skein for that. I had to buy circular needles too - had some but when we were moving I hardened my heart and got rid of my wool stash and extra bits I thought unlikely I would use . . .
Another year until the next Welsh Wonderwool, but if you live in the North of Britain, there is Yarndale in the Autumn, at Skipton in Yorkshire.
I forgot to take photos of the bevy of books and lovely x-stitch kits I got from my dear friend G in Dorset. She knows what I like!!
