It been a bit quiet on the blog this week as we've been back in Scotland visiting friends and family! We've had such a lovely trip up north, catching up with old friends, watching Angus play with his cousins and just spending some time together as a family! Stuart and I also got some time to ourselves with was great and a great opportunity for Angus to spend some time with his grandparents.
On Tuesday morning Angus was with his grandparents so Stuart and I went into town to look round the shops and get some lunch. We had such a relaxing morning (anyone with a toddler will understand how difficult looking round shops can be!) and a really nice lunch.
I was especially pleased as it meant I finally had the opportunity to go to a yarn shop I have been going on about for ages! The shop is called "Wool for Ewe" and is right round the corner from where I used to live. It has a wonderful selection of yarn, needles, bags and all kinds of accessories. The staff were very well informed and happy to help. They also run classes and do workshops. I was very restrained and only bought the yarn I needed, which turned out to be quite boring.
The yarn is for a cowl for Stuart so he got to choose the colour, which is not what I would have chosen but it has to be something he'll wear.
I did however, manage to pick up a couple of extra things!
A very handy tote bag, some cute tissues with balls of yarn on them and a bookmark.
I will definitely be going back to "Wool for Ewe" the next time we are in Aberdeen. I could have spent hours in there just touching all the lovely yarn, but I was conscious Stuart was with me and although he hadn't said anything I could tell he was getting bored! I was still happy with my purchases though and so glad to finally visit the shop!
"Wool for Ewe" also has a website if you want to check it out
