I bought these today because I was there and because I deserved a treat after a horrible week. I'd driven miles to pick something up and on the way back, en route for yet another visit to the dump and the book bank, I thought I might as well pop in to Hobbycraft, as I'm not that way very often. I went straight to the yarn sale shelf and for £10.00 I got a Rowan pattern book and three balls of Rowan Lux, which is going to make a nice soft scarf. The colour is Gigli and it's a softer green than it looks in the photo. All Rowan Lux half price at Hobbycraft, folks! I liked the Amethyst.

Looking at the rest of the yarn, I was very taken with Rowan Colourscape Chunky by Kaffe Fassett. Gorgeous colours but it's chunky, quite expensive and I couldn't think of anything to make with it. Like I need more yarn, anyway.
