Colinette Mill Shop buys, part two

Some more Point 5, this time in shade "Morocco" I think. I bought a kit with this last time, which made a hat and scarf, and I love the mix of colours:



Lastly 4 different skeins, left to right - mohair in deep purple shades, Giotto, Lasso (in Popsicle I think), and top is a very pink skein of Point 5:



I could probably have bought more yarn (stating the obvious there), but (a) I could just about carry 12 skeins! (no baskets provided, major oversight there LOL), and (b) I still have 8 skeins of Graffiti from the last visit, and 6 or 7 of Giotto bought for a sweater last year ....

They had what looked like an experimental run of yarn too, it was based on Giotto, the name began with "O", something like Oxo but obviously not Oxo! (might have been Ogo). The sign said it was available at the mill shop only. It's basically a shinier version of Giotto, very pretty it was too.

I am now coveting the throw kits, there were several knitted up on display and they are gorgeous. A future purchase there methinks!

Next post will be a couple of photos of the river that runs past the workshops. This is a very pretty setting indeed, there is the steam railway which runs between Llanfair and Welshpool, and the natural scenery which is a real pleasure to drive through.

Point Five felts beautifully if you fancy having a go! You chose gorgeous colours. I know what you mean about those throws - I have been mulling on them for weeks - got to have a go!

Hehe. And I thought my pink sweater was pink!

All the colors you've chosen are gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I was thinking about buying half the ingredients of a throw kit and making a wrap, lol.

Love the Morocco colourway.

Interesting to maybe see the birth of a new yarn.

OK, I've popped back for another thigh rubbing moment! lol!
I love Wales (all of it!) - it feels so rugged and almost untamed (well, compared to flat old Essex!), I have fond memories of holidays there both as a child and adult!
