When I went on the Rowan course I took advantage of the £1 balls of yarn & access to hundreds of books & came home with my birthday present(s):
RYC Cashcotton DK in cool
RYC Cashcotton DK in pool
I have a variety of patterns earmarked for the Cashcotton DK in both RYC Summer & Cafe book one.
Jaeger Extra Fine Merino Chunky in Mink to make Hardy from JB38
Jaeger Aqua cotton to make Annie from JB34
I also picked up some books from Rowan for my birthday:
and more from Up Country which weren't for my birthday but had to come home with me anyway.
I've just got to shift more weight so that I can start making all these garments for myself! I've been running 4 times now & am enjoying it DH & DD got me a pacer watch (in addition to the yarn above) & I'm now running 90 seconds at a time. Oscar is still walking but I'll get there in time for him to run with me properly when he's a year old. I'm off now to have a shower before making the most of my day off work & will be visiting the LYS this morning
