A visit to the haberdashery shop was in order this morning. The only problem being, apart from the miserable driving sleet and rain, that my vision for craft projects always manages to exceed both my skills level and available time. But buying such stuff is always fun.
I found myself drawn to some exquisitely soft merino yarn, especially the moss green shade.
‘I don’t know why I’m looking at this’ I said to the assistant, ‘I can’t even knit’.
‘Oh you don’t knit with it!’ she exclaimed ‘You just put it in a basket, and stroke it occasionally, its all you need to do’.
I’ve obviously been missing a trick.
