How fab is it that a wonderful wool shop has opened just a few streets from my house! It's called A Good Yarn and I urge you to have a look at the website when you have a moment, if woolly things made you start to dribble and wave your arms from side to side like Wallace.
Apart from glorious yarns and friendly people like lovely owner, Kate, there are beginners' knitting classes, drop-in problem solving sessions, various workshops and knit'n'natter sessions. I went to one of the latter and had a great time. There were nine of us and, over coffee, cakes and clattering needles, we happily sat for two hours making new friends and discussing knitting, crochet, blokes and anything else we had in common. Here are a few photos

Looking forward to my next trip already.
