Bettys specialities

Once again I have been in York for the weekend. The picture above is the best we could get through glass of Bettys window display in Northallerton, marzipan farm yard and lots of chocolate specialities for Easter. they sure have some skilled and very patient staff. The Breakfasts aren't bad either.

Due to the train journeys I managed to get quite a bit done on the "Red Toes" Day Socks one is complete and I hope to finish the other tomorrow. Knit in The Yarn Yard Shelter Charity Yarn and the pattern is SKS Baby Cable.

Of course I have enough yarn and there is no reason to acquire anymore! WRONG. Schaefer Anne which was a bargain £8 from HipKnits, the colours are autumnal but at 560m per skein the possibilities are endless.

Sock clubs don't count because you have already paid in advance! This is the Yarn Yards March offering which I think is the best so far but then I like a bit of green to warm up blue.
