Hi, its me again! Twice in two days! Almost like a dedicated blogger now!
Anyway as promised, here is my second instalment of what we did in Aberystwyth.
Whilst it is fair to say we bumped into some gorgeous friends (you know who you are...) shopped, spent time with family and ate far too much, we also spent one day on a yarn trail of West Wales.
Starting with a tip off from a friend, we spent the day driving round West Wales visiting Carmarthen and Lampeter in the hope of finding some interesting yarn. In Carmarthen we found 'The Wool Baa' (great name) http://www.yell.com/b/The+Wool+Baa-Wool+Shops-carmarthen-SA311QY-2089837/ in the new market hall.
A lovely little shop/stall with a mountain of yarn, but somehow nothing really took my fancy.
So after some lunch we mooched onto Lampeter, where much to my delight we found Calico Kate's http://www.calicokate.co.uk/
An Aladdin's cave of knitting, sewing, quilting... I was quite restrained, and only bought 5 balls of wool and a crochet hook! (Well it was a 8mm and I didn't have that size!)
Back in Aberystwyth, I can't finish this blog post without mentioning two other lovely shops, firstly Aberdashery (another great name), you can follow them on facebook https://www.facebook.com/AberdasheryFabrics?fref=ts
And, Claire's http://www.clarewools.co.uk/
Both shops are brilliant, full of ideas, advice and inspiration.
So, to conclude, I returned from our Welsh adventure with still more yarn for the stash and a woolyhead full of more ideas!
Happy crafting guys xxx
