Hi everyone! Long time no post, but I have a great pleasure to share with you a new local yarn, Albertine by De Rerum Natura.
If you are a knitter, you love sheep (or, if you don’t like sheep, you are not a knitter)!
So I discovered Donna Smith’s Baable hat with the same enthousiasme as all of you 2 years ago.
This pattern was featured on the cover of the first issue of Shetland wool week annual, and seeing the names of contributors (Kate Davies among others), I didn’t hesitate one second to purchase it (and to my satisfaction, this number is full of interesting patterns and articles).
You must know it’s difficult to keep your faith. Mine in term of yarn purchase is to “prefer” European ones, and I have the feeling of becoming more and more finicky and demanding, as for the origin, place and process of production, and this reduces the scope of choice.
I’ve however bought recently a yarn “mostly” European, and I’d like to share it with you!
