'Mad About Ewe' is smack in the middle of the 'Old Quarter'. What a great yarn store! The clerks were very helpful and directed Fred to a nearby coffee shop. Funny man, my Fred. He asked them if there was a time limit on loitering in the coffee shop. Then told them the story of getting kicked out of the coffee shop next door to Toronto's Romni Wools for being there too long. Ha Ha
One of the 'Mad About Ewe' clerks was wearing a wonderful,wool sweater. Spectacular yarn, in a rust-coloured tweed. Knit in a beautifully-simple, classic style with one large cable down the front. I wanted one! But the price stopped me. The sweater would have cost me about $175. Too much for this retiree's pocketbook.
Instead, I bought this.
DK weight, cotton, meant for a summer top. Not sure what style yet, but sleeveless. It is Fanion by Phildar.
This single ball of green is - just because. I had never seen yarn with sequins before. So it was a must have.
It is Coquette by Louisa Harding. Polyester and sequins. 67 metres on the 25 G ball. Suggestions?
The orange and blue are for this summer top.
stockinet in the top. My first one has been washed so much all shape is lost. So another one it is. The orange has a blue fleck, so I think the two will look great together and be nice with jeans.
