Because all the borders are closed and there are very few airlines flying we have stepped back to the pre1960's when it comes to buying books from overseas. The websites say 10 to 15 days, but for some books I have been waiting longer than that. I realise now that I have been spoiled by the supply chains of quick delivery facilitated by the airlines. The things this virus is teaching us!
But I have received a knitting pattern book from Kate Davies Design & Co. Colour Moves by Claudia Fiocchetti.
I would like to purchase that yarn from KDD& Co as well but the exchange rate on our dollar is so low I just can't afford that kind of expense. But I know that I am going to have to knit gloves and hats now that the ferry and barge services have been severely reduced. Soon those South East winds will blow and standing on the open deck of the barge will be very cold. The ferry isn't running between 8am and 6pm so it looks as though I will need all my winter woolies in a few months time.
There are some really challenging patterns in this book, well challenging for me. I would like to knit this colour work set. Those colours look just like looking through water.
And the second pair of gloves would mean I could use my fingers and keep warm at the same time.
Now I have to find a similar type of yarn locally and that might be easier said than done.
