After reading this post from Anna, I've been dreaming about this yarn store. So when my friend asked me to accompany her to London to look for accomodation, I jumped at the opportunity to visit the shop once we're done with her business.
So how could I be not heartbroken that when we got there, I just realised that the shop was already closed 5 minutes ago? It was a close call to screaming and weeping, but believe me when I say that it wrenched me inside. I mean, I just missed my first chance to see Koigu, Lorna's Laces, Handmaiden....ahhh....I can't go on, otherwise my keyboard would be broken because of my flooding tears.
I'm sure you guys would understand my pain. I have to go to London again on Sunday to help my friend moves, but the store won't be open that day. Hmmm...just realise that Loop is. Yay!
Talking about moving, I just moved host family yesterday. It was a downright nightmare. My stuffs must have multiplying behind my back. TWO cabs were barely enough to fit all of them. My former hostfather was shocked, my new hostfamily was speechless...but I heard her mutter something like "...it won't fit". The new house is out of nowhere, but I shall survive for 2 months. Anyway, I'll be in real trouble with the amount of my stuffs when I go to university, so I *might* have to...uhm...destash. We'll see if I can find anything I can bear to part with.
Knitting wise, I've been quite faithful to Diamond Fantasy Shawl lately. But I get really confused because it never seems to grow big enough for me.
Here's 9 repeats of it, it's supposed to be huge by now. I'm using 4mm needle with fingering weight yarn.
So I came to some conclusions:
-I'm a seriously tight knitter.
-The shawl will magically grow twice its size now once blocked.
-It's not the shawl's fault, I'm THE ONE that grows bigger.
What do you reckon?
