Bonjour, Paris

Second time round in Paris, the gritting makes an opportune appearance at Le Petit Trianon at Chateau de Versailles and in Quariter Latin, near some of the best paste ups i've seen since leaving Wellington (shall save those for another post).

Sweden and WWKIP

I was in Sweden for WWKIP day, and was rather looking forward to getting along to some of the yarn shops in Stockholm. Not to mention doing some tags - but the weather conspired against me and it rained. The. Whole. Time. Three days. I made it to one yarn store, just as she was closing the door and the owner was not in the mood to be nice to a kiwi knitter a long way from home. I managed to sneak into another one, but it was nowhere near as good as the first one looked through the window. I did pick up some Swedish superwash merino and some Ekologikal merino that still has the gorgeous smell of lanolin clinging to it.

After all that, walking down a random street, what did i spot? The tag above. It made my weekend.

I shall be in Paris for WWKIP weekend number two, and fingers crossed that the weather cooperates for some knit tagging goodness. I'm going by bus so will even be able to take some knitting with me. 

In other news, this exciting project has got my fingers itching, and I have found some new (ish) taggers in London that I hope to connect with, Yay!
