...but I couldn't resist buying more yarn when I saw what Tamiwicolors had on offer.
I've been under the weather this last week. I started last weekend with a sore chest and I thought uh-oh, this is usually the sign that something else is going to develop and sure enough, I've now got a full blown cold and a hacking cough. I shouldn't complain really as I'm not ill very often but I don't make a very good patient when I am.
So, when I stumbled upon Tamiwi's Etsy shop on Monday, feeling very sorry for myself, my defences were down and resistance was futile, I ended up popping three skeins into my online basket. I know, I know, it was only a couple of weeks ago that I was saying I had to use up some of my stash before I bought any more, but I needed cheering up, and cheered up I was when there was a knock on the door yesterday morning and I saw what the postman had delivered.
How quick was that? I only placed the order on Monday evening from an online shop which is based in Germany and it was delivered on Saturday morning.
I'm so happy with all three of my choices, Yellow Primrose, Beth is the pink one and the green one doesn't have a name. These photos don't show them at their best but if you take a look at the online shop, the colours show up much better there.
I went for the Strong Sock range, 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon. I don't think it's quite as soft as some other yarn I've bought in the past, it's a little more woolly if you know what I mean, but I'm very happy with it and it was a fantastic price for hand dyed yarn. Tamiwi does sell a Soft Sock base which, I presume, is softer than the Strong Sock and it's still a very good price if that's what you're after.
Attached to Tamiwi's business card was a cute little owl progress keeper which I'll put to good use and a little packet of Haribos was also included in the parcel.
I'm still feeling very ropey today so I shall dose myself up, squish my gorgeous new yarn, and I'm sure I'll feel much better.
