buying roving is tricksy

Yesterday was brilliant,  Unique yarns was even better than I had hoped…….I got some brilliant roving and as I told the lady in the store it was the first time I have ever bought roving from a store.  Which was actually really odd as I had no idea what I was supposed to do.  They had a whole load of loose roving to buy by the ounce and I found myself going errrrrrr about a bag full?  how much is that?  I’m sure my I.Q dropped about a hundred points or at least didn’t appear to be very high in the first place to the women in the store.

My favourite purchase  from them was llama roving donated by Lily and Abe (It’s the dark and light brown stuff – I think Lily was the lighter one)


How brilliant is it to know the name of your “supplier” and I’ve never used llama so I’m excited to try that out.  I also found out about a spray to protect the critters from moths and other icky bugs it’s called Kookaburra woolwash and from now on all the critters will have a spritz of it before heading off to their new homes.

And now let me introduce you to Jonesie……..
