Visited I Knit London on a recent trip. Lots of books and patterns to choose from.

Nice yarn and some cool accessories but the staff weren't overtly friendly. A nod when I walked in yet absolutely no inquiry on whether or not I needed help or any conversation at all as a matter of fact.

I walked into this place, eager to buy a bit of wool.

After a wander around the sales floor and a peak at the price of every single skein of wool, I dejectedly left. My purse couldn't even handle the cost of wool for a simple scarf.

Everything was TOO EXPENSIVE. £9.99 for 50g?? Surely, you jest.

But the wool certainly was pretty... Maybe some day in the future I'll be affluent enough to...more
