I have anew manager at work, who is very happy to help me be happy. So when I said I wanted to go to Wangarrata, she sent me there at the next possible opportunity.Walking down the street and seeing the sign to Textile venue literally set my pulse racing. Who knows what wonders might be inside?
I was actually fairly restrained, keeping in mind that I am going to the Bendigo Sheep show this year, and to New Zealand just after that.
There was a giant bin full of Patonyle. I wanted to buy all of it.
Instead I bought one ball of utterly florescent safety yellow to make sneaker liners
Six balls of a more normal yellow to make a Whispy cardigan.
I bought some Cleckheaton Country 8 ply to make Ginny's cardigan. The colour is an amazing blue green, that is not reflected very well in this photo.
After going to the mill I went to work and then went and caught the train home. It's all allocated seating and by crazy coincidence I was seated next to a woman knitting a blanket. I took a creepy shot, you can just see her blanket on the left, and my bright green knitting on my lap on the right.
All in all a very satisfying day. \Now I just have to add the stash to Ravelry and tally up my new totals.
