One of my plans for things to do whilst I am in London, was a trip to Loop. As it turned out, they have a knit night on a Thursday evening and A Playful Day suggested we pop down. Although we've chatted for a while online, it was the first time we had met, so I was a little nervous (I know I come across as witty and suave on this blog, but in reality I'm just a dork).
As it turns out, I needn't have been and ended up having a lovely evening. Although I did take my camera with me, I was having too good a time to take photos, so this here is purely symbolic:
Knitting and wine is all you need to bond!
The other ladies at knit night were all lovely and I came away with three new Ravelry friends. However, what I didn't manage to come away with was any yarn. I couldn't make my mind up in the shop, so I decided to go away and sleep on it, then I went back again today with a better idea of what was there and what I wanted.
I'm still not sure of using that blue for the Rock Island, but I think this could be amazing:
And I don't yet know what I'm going to use this for, but I just couldn't resist:
Yes, that does say Wollmeise on that label there.
I'm very happy with my yarn purchases.
