New Wool!

 This is my latest order from PurpleLindaCrafts over in Scotland - I've ordered from her several times before without any issue at all however when this package arrived I thought that it didn't quite look right: she had sent me the wrong shade of King Cole's riot dk. It wouldn't normally be that much of an issue for me except that all these are for Jaye's latest order so I needed the correct shade. I rushed off an email to the company and they sent me the correct shade straight away AND said to keep the incorrect ones without charge!!  For me this is incredible customer service and now I have even more wool!!

 But wait...there's more...a friend of mine from Valentia gifted me all the yarn below which she'd found when she was having to clean out the house of her late uncle (who was one of my all-time favourite passengers on the ferry)

I'm so touched by Bernie's kindness and for thinking of me - I'm going to make myself a scarf and a matching headband or maybe a hat with the purple...

 It was really poignant to see that Charlie's late wife, Mary, had started on a jumper for someone and hadn't finished it (it's made me think about how many half-finished projects I have..)

 I think making the scarf set will probably be a winter project for myself as I'm busy trying to build up my stock levels for sale -- hopefully Lucy will be selling my hats and wrist warmers in her shop in the village again this year.

I'm rapidly running out of space for all this'll be easier once I've given Barbara all her hats and headbands as they are taking up a lot of space in my cupboard, but for the moment my wools from New York and these new ones are having just to stay in bags.
