Last weekend we went on a short trip to the Cotswold town of Chipping Norton. What a weekend to choose – it was absolutely freezing and I ended up wearing every piece of clothing in my suitcase to try and stay warm!
Whilst walking round the town, however, I was excited to see signs of recent yarn bombing – a sure sign that there must be a yarn shop about.
And here it is!
Quaint and cosy, The Fibreworks is run by the lovely Lesley, who was happy to chat while I browsed the delicious yarn on offer. I couldn’t resist the bright colours of this Rico cotton. Inspired by Attic 24’s blog, I am trying to teach myself to crochet in ripples, but failing dismally so far. These colours may just be the inspiration I need to try again.
The shop is full of woolly goodness, as you can see…
There was also lots of gorgeous habedashery which I failed to photograph – Doh!
Even a spot for hubbie to sit while I mooched about.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area. There is a Fibre Festival in May if you live nearby – details here.
