Wool on Sunday.

Joining in with Janine and Wool on Sunday. Janine’s post features a recent finish; a beautiful cabled jumper! 
On our recent holiday, I was very restrained in my yarn purchases. I’d done a bit of a ‘stocktake’ of my yarn stash in the weeks before we went away and I’d decided that I needed to use a lot more of the yarns that I already had. 
So I admired the beautiful and expensive yarns in Ireland but bought none. I hadn’t even googled wool shops in London, but just near our hotel in Copenhagen there was a yarn shop. I walked past it a few times but didn’t venture inside. 

Then the day before we left the city, I did go into the shop. 
The photo shows a tiny part of the shop.

Ironically a lot of the yarns were from Ireland 😄. 
Eventually I chose this mohair...Canard does appear to be a Danish company so a good souvenir. 

It cost as much as my meal did the night before in a local cafe...😆 This yarn will look lovely in one of my chevron throws.
One of my friends in K4BN makes these gorgeous little knitted toys called Pookies. A number of years ago I wrote a post about these little ‘pocket pals’ 
here. This post also has a link to the pattern. My friend has made a Pookie for Carrie...

And then the lovely D offered to make Pookies for our other 4 granddaughters and even a Nonna Pookie for me 💕. 

D explained that all 6 Pookies have some mauve coloured yarn in them, so they are all linked together just like our family. Such a generous and caring friend.

How sweet those pokies are

it must have been hard to resist all that gorgeous yarn.

That yarn shop looks like a treasure trove - and a money black hole! What lovely little gifts for your family. xx

I can never seem to find a yarn shop when we are on holiday. I think you showed great restraint.

The Pookies are so very sweet.

How is your lovely granddaughter doing?

God bless.

You were restrained in your purchases but your selection is lovely. And the pookies your friend made are adorable. I'm glad she made you one too :)
I'm sorry I've been having inlinkz issues. I will add a link to this at the bottom of my post.

Hi Maria, its beaut you got some mohair - I remembered in a previous post of your trip you would have liked a mohair scarf, but for the price.
Love those sweet pookies and what a beautiful gift by your friend for Carrie too xx
