I just came back from 2 long weeks of holidays in Paris. The weather was horrible most of the time, but I still enjoyed my stay a lot: Spending time with my family, meeting friends, shopping, knitting, reading, cooking.... These two weeks were really fun and I have a lot to show you.
Any trip to Paris should be followed by intense shopping, and that's what I did this time.
I first went to the Atelier de la Création and bought quite a few balls of Drops yarn:
|Future Socks for me!|
|Those are not white anymore! ;)|
|A future Henslowe shawl.|
I discovered this shop quite recently, and I already love it! The people in there are very nice and helpful and the yarn prices are just awesome.
Then, Paris = Le Comptoir. I went twice. I promise each time, it was just to say hello to Barbara, but you know how it is...
|This is already knitted, and I'll tell you more about this very soon.|
|I simply fall in love with HolstGarn Coast.|
And, last but not least, from a "vente privée" with Knit Cat's, I came back with:
|Hedgehog Fibres, Sock Yarn. Ventricle. Knit Cat's made me promise to knit socks from it!|
|The Plucky Knitter, Merino Fingering, Dandelion. An amazing yellow that is too beautiful to get hidden in shoes.|
14 balls of yarn. This is a record. Intense it was! I'm usually a reasonable shopper, but this time was just different: I needed this yarn. Badly.
