Loop

Yesterday I visited a shop that is, in theory walking distance from where I work, silly me chose to get the bus. Of course it would have been quicker to walk.
Loop is a bit of a hidden treasure, this is my second visit and I managed without the help of an A to Z. I was very reserved, mainly because I have yet to think of a use for the lovely Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton although the Silk was very tempting. So just came away with this Berry coloured sock yarn.
and
These gorgeous buttons. No idea what for yet but I just needed them, thought at worst they would go together without too much trouble. I was tempted by some others until I saw they were £4.50 each!
After this very pleasant shop I met up with friends for a Chinese buffet meal, never again, its only saving grace was it only cost £10. Wagamamas looked so tempting across the way.Thankfully we usually like to try a new venue every time we meet.
Quick question, have any of you plans for 6th September? Do tell. Clue is here.
Lots of knitting news tomorrow followed by mitts, I hope.

I'd love to visit that shop. Not sure if I can make the 6th which is a pain, it looks fantastic!

It is a very nice shop indeed. I went there last week and wasn't as restrained as you were.
