It's the first time I've bought from them and thought the service was very good. Plus free sock pattern (won't be using), pattern for 'gift pouch', pen and sweeties. Some of this yarn is earmarked for knitting socks as presents. Meanwhile it's spurred me on to start the pair to this
which is knitted in Lana Grossa Cotton Fun. I knitted as I mean to go on: furiously all evening.
I've just finished reading The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. A good idea, this, cashing in on the knitting boom by setting the story of four women in a yarn store. Not enough detail about the knitting for my taste but I see that the next book in the series, The Yarn Store, has a lot about sock knitting so I might persevere.
