I Went To London To Buy Yarn....

I went to London... I brought Yarn.... I came home. #thatisall

Well not really all but that pretty much sums up my trip. :)

In front of I Knit London (thank God for Google Maps I almost didn't find this place).

I was not able to get as much yarn as I wanted as the conversion from Pounds to Dollars is almost doubled. But I was able to get my hands on some hand spun hand dyed lace weight silk yarn. It will be my very first time working with a lace weight yarn but the folks in the shop were very convincing that I could crochet a beautiful shawl.... now the hunt is on for a pattern. I also purchased some mercerized cotton not pictured; I got it mainly to compare to the mercerized cotton here in the states. I will let you know how it works up in another post as well as what I decided to do with the beauty below.

This yarn colorway was dyed just for the "I Knit London" yarn shop.

It was much colder than I expected and raining... but I did try to make the best of my impromptu trip across the pond... and me and the bestie did hit up all the tourist spots while there.

Just a little collage of the trip.
There are quite a few updates for Don't Get it Twisted Crochet so stay tuned!
