Fair Produce

I was remarkably restrained I think, in my recent Craft show purchases. Even though I left carrying at least three bags full it all packed down to one bag of luscious yarns.

In the background, courtesy of Sarah's stand, we have three skeins of lovely Colinette Fandango in Nutmeg shade, destined for a top-down, cap sleeve, summer top.

On the left is an little known Chinese brand from the Prestige yarn stall; Fantasia Cronos, 60% wool 40% silk, going for a bargain, how could I resist?

And last but definitely not least; 7 balls of lovely organic Pakucho Cotton in the Dk Green shade. This is destined for a Kitty or Glampyre pattern.

The only other purchase of note was 3 skeins of Lightweight mohair boucle from Claire Patterson Designs that are to be customed dyed and which will eventually, (hopefully) result in a version of this vintage '60's jacket.

This little leaflet from a St Vinnie's shop has on the back a classy "jacket-suit" called Park Lane. Very sophisticated and obviously designed for a flat-chested, slim-hipped androgyne.
