I went to Knit, which is Jo Sharp’s yarn store. It’s a great store – quite small, but the staff are helpful and they have made up versions of their patterns that you can try on and then decide if you want to knit them. Such a good idea – saves you spending all that time knitting something only to discover it doesn’t suit you at all.
Fortunately I didn’t purchase any yarn – my stash is reaching unmanageable proportions. I did, however, pick up a copy of Knit Issue 2.
I’m quite interested in knitting the bolero (last image on the right below).
