Yarny goodness!

I got to spend one glorious morning at k1 yarns, Glasgow's lovely yarn shop! and bought some lovely souvenir yarn!

A sweater's worth of yarn spun at the New Lanark mill...not too far from Glasgow! It is a wool/silk blend, a nice aran tweed! Yum!

And a little more in a different color...Mom this just screamed you! How could I not buy it?

Some lovely lace weight!

and of course some sock yarn!

They also gave me a nice bag to hold my projects! Now my advisor also found me a knitting group to attend while I was in Glasgow! Well other people connected to the math department attend, so the group kind of found her! It was a nice evening to relax, sip some tea, eat a savory scone, and knit with new friends!

Tweed has just been looking so good to me lately.

How fun to visit Glasgow's LYS and find the new right alongside the familiar!

That sounds like a blissful visit. I'd love to go to K1 yarns - I've often admired their website!
