How to be happy on Yarn Shop Day 2016

Yarn shop day has spun around again, is it really a whole year since I was in the Treacle Woolshop, Morpeth on our way back from a Northumberland holiday? 

So where to go this year ... only one on my list today. Here I am outside the Wool Zone in Oakham about to visit for the umpteenth time this year! 

Look at all the lovely freebies I picked up, I'm particularly pleased with the Stylecraft colour chart, that will make colour schemes much easier! Thanks so much Julie! 

The poncho I'm wearing has been much admired today, there's a free pattern for it called Boho Tuniek on Ravelry. I used 4 balls of Stylecraft Mosaic Super Chunky yarn (colourway Baroque) I think which was purchased from the Wool Zone, where else?! 

I rolled up around lunchtime and spent a lovely hour happpily chatting with the owner, Julie and other customers and eating delicious muffins.

Of course, I can't get out of a yarn shop without buying some yarn .... 

This little lot is going to make a Call the Midwife blanket for one of the Intermediate Care Team carers who looked after my mum for a few weeks after she came out of hospital (hip replacement). The carer is expecting a baby in a little over two weeks time. I'd better get crocheting, quick!
