I think my last post was about Caron cakes, and the absolute excitement that Hobbycraft had announced they would be selling them in the UK, something I’ve waited for, for quite some time, well they’re here!!!! Yesterday the lovely @lyndascraftroom tagged me in on a knitcraft post to let me know that not only did they launch them online yesterday but they’re actually on 3 for 2! Wow!!!
This was just as I was stood at the till inside the habidashery at Liberty London….I’d already paid, but never mind. As soon as i got outside I went straight to my phone and ordered some Caron cakes, in fear they would sell out straight away. I couldn’t wait to see if they had them in store or not so ordered 6 on the 3 for 2, what do you think of my colour choice?
Anyway I mentioned about Liberty London, I had some spare time whilst working in London yesterday, one of my favourite stores is fortnum and Mason, I’d never been into Liberty London but I had watched a tv documentary about them. I love the traditional feel of these old stores, and how the staff are so helpful. I found the habidashery on the 3rd floor, OK there wasn’t a huge selection, and it isn’t somewhere you would find stylecraft for example, they sold Rowan only, and it everything was very focuses around knitting. The department manager spoke to me and we chatted about crochet, and I learnt that she was one of the original testers form jane crowfoot! The mastermind of the lillypond blanket and many more beautiful designs, I could not resist buying some yarn…..I bought 7 balls of a Citroen glacè in a baby pink, lord knows what I’m going to do with It!
This is becoming an issue, my craft area shelving system I was so pleased with a few weeks ago is now over flowing, the chest in my lounge is rammed, I have 6 X Caron cakes awaiting collection from hobbycraft, and hidden inside my car are
20 X sirdar
12 X James c Brett chunky marble
And 6 X Rowan cotton glacè
I think I need help!!
Happy hooking xx
