A proper real life LYS, knit nights and a party!

At last! we've got a proper real life WOOL SHOP! and I can say that with confidence since they specialise and feature yarns with at least 70% natural fibre and many from lovely independant producers too - a must for the discerning knitter!
Last night my knit pal, Sally, and I went along to their evening knit night and met with some other ladies that have come over from the original premises and as I know there are lots of "local" knitters here, I'm hoping it won't be too long before a few familiar faces join in too.
We reviewed yarns this time for a knitting magazine and on Saturday there is the lovely launch party to look forward to!
I expect I shall spend a lot of time and money here! and this is just one of my recent purchases:
A skein of hand dyed dk yarn, 80% superfine alpaca and 20% silk from The Knitting Goddess in semi solid "biscuit" purchased at recent trunk show at Fibre Flurry - lovely and soft!
