Noughts n Crosses


I met Anni on Saturday at Fibrefest 2007 and whilst we were chatting alongside http://www.brightdyes.wahmall.co.uk/traderplus/ stand, this mouthwatering orange sock yarn was screeching at me to jump into my bag and come live at my house. It's Chrissy's BFL and alpaca sock yarn so goes beautifully with the contrast yarn being sold next door which was from UK Alpaca. When I checked the label, it says it's spun at http://www.coldharbourmill.org.uk/ which was working and open to the public for viewing over the Fibrefest weekend. I wish I could describe the soft squishy feeling these socks have, they are going to be so comfy and warm. I cast on last night as soon as I'd downloaded the pattern and yes, I'm thoroughly enjoying my noughts 'n crosses. I thought it rather appropriate that I use the yarn I'd seen whilst with Anni and Chrissy. They'll always be a reminder of a lovely day out.

Gorgeous yarn, WW. Love it. It was lovely to meet you and Chrissy, and Kathryn, who I met earlier on in the day, at Fibre Fest. Fantatic to have a show like that in our part of the UK and hopefully next yearit'll be bigger. Can't wait to see your socks finished. They'll look fab.
