Yarn cakes

>Having been in Paris for the week, I came back with lots of beautiful yarn and was very happy to find my recently-ordered yarn swift and ball winder just waiting for me to make some yummy yarn cakes today!

Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted



I absolutely love this colour, which is called ‘Courage’.

Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock



I adore this colourway, ‘River’. These two yarns were purchased from L’OisiveThe, a fantastic cafe and yarn store in the Butte aux Cailles area of Paris. I went to the Wednesday evening knitting circle, TricotThe, which was wonderful!

La Droguerie Fleur de Coton

Before (oops, it got a bit tangled en route!):


This was purchased from La Droguerie, a great Parisian yarn and notions store. They have gorgeous fabric, ribbons and buttons too!

I can’t wait to make more yarn cakes!
