Travelling with Miss Babs; We're going...

... to Japan. Here's my first package: ( I have to point out the box was fine when it arrived, but Leon had to get it in his bike pannier, so he squashed it down)

I opened it

 and it is delightful. Some lovely bits and pieces, a whole travel guide to our "destination" and the yarn.  Oh the yarn. Alpaca / silk lace weight in a pale, pale pink.

And of course, the trip bags, because everything needs its own bag:

The design is, as expected a Kitman Figoa shawl. A traditional triangle lace shawl, called Cherry Me, perfectly matched with the yarn. I'm so looking forward to getting this on my needles.


  1. I can't tell you how much I love the colour of that yarn! It's immense :)

  2. jealous!!
    i too love that yarn - it's absolutely cherry blossoms!
