A few Saturdays ago I went, with my best friend and her daughter (Little Miss), to York for the day. It was Little Miss's first grown up ladies day out and she was super excited at the prospect of lunch and taking part in some shopping of her own. Little Miss is great fun to talk to and she is interested in knitting and crafty things. It was easy then to include some woolly related shopping into our day.

Our final shop of the day was Ram Shambles which, although small, is jam packed full of yarny delights especially in the front room. Both my best friend and I succumbed to some very cute bear needle stoppers and I bought two skeins of West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester Aran wool. One skien of which I have ear marked to make Amanda Collin's (Owl Print Panda) Light and Lofty hat which is in issue 38 of Knit Now magazine.
