But not empty handed. A trip north is never cheap - in this case it was the W's that got me; whisky and wool. I bought 37 balls of wool for approximately the same price as a litre of Laphroaig PX, both represent excellent value. I thought I'd got a reasonable spread of colours but looking at them now I really don't think I bought enough. There's a definite need for a really yellowy yellow, more blues, something pink... Never mind, I'm going back in June and it's possible I'll struggle on somehow with what I've got. Now all I need to do is work out what to make.
