The weekend started with a long planned trip to Colinette Yarns in Llanfair Caereinion with some good friends who, like me, are just a little obsessed with colour and yarn. We shared some good laughs and stories on the way driving through some beautiful countryside in equally beautiful weather. On arrival at Colinette we were greeted warmly and made very welcome with offerings of tea, coffee and homemade chocolate cake which we sampled whilst browsing through the latest design books and then the real fun began…
…we found an amazing cocktail of colours and textures, don’t you just want to take large gulp’s of all this deliciousness?
I was a very good girl and only purchased 3 hanks of Lasso. You can guess the colour…
…and staying with the colour blue: On Sunday we spent a lovely day on Anglesey. This island is about an hour’s drive from home and we managed to get there before the bank holiday masses decended onto the roads. The sun was shining and the sky and sea were a beautiful crisp blue.
We took a great walk along parts of the Welsh coastal path and finished off with a delicious meal at one of our favourite restaurants in Beaumaris, The Gazelle Hotel & Restaurant. We ate fish caught that morning in the Menai straight whilst enjoying vistas across the water to the Snowden range of mountains. Total bliss!!!
What better way to finish on the weekends blue theme than by starting work on a new design using my freshly purchased Colinette yarn. A tunic in asymetrical style inspired by something I saw in one of the discontinued brochures at Colinette.
Off to wind my yarn and start knitting, I’ll keep you posted on progress. x
