Joining in with Janine and Wool on Sunday. Janine’s post features a recent finish; a beautiful cabled jumper!
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.
