Thought I would give a bit of a shout out to the place where I get my yarn (in the UK). I trawled around looking for various websites but have recently been using Wool Warehouse mainly because they have a really great choice at extremely good prices and you can get free delivery over £25.00 which, let’s face it isn’t hard!
Most recently I have bought Rico Creative Cotton at £1.79 for a 50g ball which comes in a huge amount of gorgeous bright colours which I have been using for my funky flower cushion.
I have also started work on a granny stripe blanket which uses Drops Lima Yarn
which is an Alpaca and Wool mix and feels really soft and cosy. This is also great value at £2.00 for 50g.
My third ‘on the go’ project is a made up pattern for my sitting room sofa in blues, browns and reds to match the walls and curtains. I’m planning large granny squares with a border, but haven’t worked out exactly what yet – more to come on that is it gets underway. I’m using Drops Eskimo
which is a super chunky yarn at an amazing £1.70 for 50g.
The biggest bargain of all, however, is for their Stylecraft DK Acrylic Yarn
which is currently £1.59 per 100g and I am planning another blanket for this yarn using random stitch patterns so watch this space!
Hope these links are useful to anyone reading this!
