Another glorious day! & yarn sort out


Another glorious sunny day! and as dh tidies and sorts the room out in preparation for no.2.son's gathering of pals this afternoon, I take myself upstairs with my knitting stuff well out of harm's way and sort it out.
Above is my stash acquired early this year in a half-price sale of Rowan Scottish Tweed 4 ply which is now sadly discontinued; I like this yarn very much and took advantage of being one of the first through the door in picking a selection of colours destined for fab fairisle gloves and mitts and handwarmers!
the laundry tin they are in was also a "bargain" and lifts atop to reveal my stash of KSH! bliss!

Also purchased recently, above half price Rowan Kid Classic and below some more Rowan Calmer.
I have patterns in mind for both yarns and will blog details when I start!
