Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely comments yesterday, it does feel really comforting to be back in touch with Blogland - I have really missed it lately, but sometimes life just gets too busy and I can't seem to fit it in. There was quite a bit of interest in the Glitter Yarn I was using for the Shawl I showed you yesterday.
As you can see, it is called Reflection and is 10% Mohair, 10% Wool, 75% Acrylic and 5% Metallic. I bought it at the Old Loom Mill, near Hailsham, East Sussex - (I looked but I don't think they have a website) - its a collection of old mill buildings where they now have a fabric shop, wool shop and lots of craft stalls - oh and of course a lovely coffee shop. They had a shawl made up and it did look pretty so I just couldn't pass it by PLUS if you purchased the wool you got the pattern free! Its only a hand typed out one but hey thats no problem! Oh and you only need two 100 gram balls of wool and it is worked on a 5.50mm uk hook so it is quite a loose drapey fabric. It was finished off with long tassels. I think they had other colours but I can't remember which! Must dash now - can't believe it but this is my 99th post - I am limping towards the 100!!!! I cant think what I have rambled on about for that many posts - will have to look back.
Have a lovely weekend
Lovely to talk to you
Speak soon xx
