On Saturday I spent the day working in the John Arbon Textiles shop. It's the place you can go to all year round to get your fix of cozy wool socks that are made right here in Devon, from British fibre too! Spending an entire day in there staring at socks and yarn certainly got me thinking of a few new knitting projects...and made me want to buy about 25 pairs of socks. Seriously, these are the most comfortable, warm and awesome socks I've ever come across - and I really like socks! I had some fun snapping pictures throughout the day, so here's a look...
Love that green paint colour!
a selection of knee socks. I LOVE the ones in the top left - they're called alpaca country socks and they are so soft and warm (and knee high!)
Here is the yarn I'm working up those granny squares in. The palette is just perfect if you ask me!!
I knit those socks in alpaca sock yarn - I love how fluffy they are! The pattern is Hermione's Everyday Socks.
It was a beautiful day on Saturday and I loved hanging out in the shop...now off to do some knitting!
