Saturday Fantasy

I had my fantasy Saturday morning this morning.

Son of mine works as a kitchen assistant at my work on a Saturday. He is currently learning to drive so as the Oh! Bearded One is down in Bristol for work I sacrificed my lie in and sat with Son of Mine whilst he drove to work. As I was going to work anyway I spend an hour and a half doing some paperwork that needs doing for next week. Then I started my fantasy Saturday morning.

My work is about 5 miles away from the centre of Knutsford which is a pretty town in the heart of Cheshire. I had spotted a advert in a knitting mag for a yarn shop in Knutsford so I took the opportunity to look for it. It was worth the search. It is called Fibre & Clay and it is on King Street although apparently it moves to Minshull Street in about 3 weeks time. As well as being a yarn shop there is a gallery for artists working in many mediums, not only in fibre. I spent a lovely hour looking at patterns & yarn and plotting & scheming projects. Of course I couldn't possibly NOT buy yarn. I bought some Noro Kureyon to knit a Booga bag, I also bought Debbie Bliss's Donegal Tweed book to knit 'Killybegs'.

Once I finished in the yarn shop I had coffee & a cake and then a good browse around Waterstones, which in Knutsford is a very new shop, it wasn't there last time I went into Knutsford. I bought a book for the Oh! Bearded One for Chridtmas. I'm not saying want just in case he sees this blog.

Oh!!! I did enjoy my Saturday morning, I must do it again soon but not too soon as I can't afford to spend any more money on stash.

Sounds like the ideal Saturday morning. So envious you have got Noro Kureyon for Booga Bag have been wanting to get same for myself for a while now and am turning green with envy! Fi here at moment reading your blog and she says you sound like a pusher saying 'my stash' at end of blog. I must visit yarn shop in Knutsford - at last a good thing about working there! Jan x

After reading your account of the yarn shop and following the link I have to agree that is sounds like a wonderful place to visit but I think I would be like a kid in a sweet shop so perhaps I should save up first ! I was positively drooling at the photos of the shop and then you tell me that Knutsford has a Waterstones as well. I will definitely have to leave the credit card at home when I visit ! - Jan
