K1 Yarn Trunk show

While in Glasgow I had the great treat of visiting a trunk show at the local yarn store K1 Yarns! The knitting goddess came to showcase her gorgeous hand dying!! She was a sweetie too! Needless to say....all my birthday money is gone....and I'm on a yarn diet! (Except for some baby knitting which there is no yarn in the stash to accommodate.....not for me, but some dear friends)
100% silk, 4-ply....I think a heavy lace weight...700m....violets!
Sock yarn (BFL superwash) in pinks!
Sock yarn (BFL superwash) in sweetpea
100% cashmere, 25g of lace weight, 350m, in Scottish Thistle! (a nice souvenir!)
and there is more to show you....not from the trunk show, but regular merchandise from the LYS! :)

ps-today I feel human! Jet lag is finally going away. Allergies are causing me a little problem, but I can deal with that! So now I need to get to work!
