I had a legitimate excuse to go there and on behalf of a friend, because she was in need of a second ball of Cleckheaton California "circus", and I knew the shop would have some. But then I spotted this-
I just loved the tie-die effect neon colours, shown better here perhaps-
It is meant to be knitted with size 10 needles, but I my biggest were a set of 9's or 12's ( or one other set which are super duper large!). But since I always need to go up a size or two, I figured the 12's would suffice. You can see how big the needles are - and how chunky the yarn is, compared to the pencil, which I assure you is a regular school HB. LOVE the colours and the speed of this knit! I am making it for my niece - I bought the yarn, showed her, asked if she would like a scarf - luckily she said yes! Although now I am thinking I might kind of have to make another one just for me....
