The boyfriend and I went to Dunoon again at the weekend, and no trip is truly complete without a visit to Jinty & Baa. I thought he would come in to the shop with me, but he insisted that I go in alone while he got some drinks from the cafe next door.
So in I went and instantly got distracted by all the beautiful colours and pretty new yarn. We’ve now reached the point that the owner recognises me (even with a mask on) so we had a chat about what’s happened since I was last there, and the new yarn and fabric that had come in.
And then before I knew it I had these three pretties to take home with me.
The big blue chonk is Rico creative Melange aran wonderball. It’s a whole 200g of wool/acrylic blend that I’m already planning to make into a top for myself.
This here is one of the rare cases when I went for fibre content over colour.
I didn’t particularly like any of the colourways in stock, but I am keen to try some sock yarn with cotton so I went for it. This is Schoppel Boots, which is 44% superwash wool, 42% cotton, and 14% nylon.
It also has this accurate warning on the label:
And then a pretty little bundle of fat quarters caught my eye and just jumped into my hands. I was powerless to resist.
And that’s the story of how I added to stash mountain AGAIN. But I think we can all agree it’s the Boyfriend’s fault for leaving me unsupervised in a yarn shop 😉
