Louisa Harding Fauve and Sirdar Duet for theTrench Scarf. I also got some Click and other Louisa Harding there. It’s a tempting little shop and right beside The English Market, so I’ll go in for a loaf of bread and come out with a cake of yarn too.

An assortment that I’ve barely used but enjoy looking at.

A super soft acrylic was my birthday gift that day.

I chose a few different yarns including a cotton blend one and a wool blend. So many yarns, so little luggage space.
