A few weeks ago the Country Living section of The Irish Farmers Journal did a piece on a knitting shop in Bray Co Wicklow called Love To Knit they can be found on facebook. So today was the perfect excuse to visit the shop. We had to bring my Mam to Bray to get fitted for her new wheelchair in the new civic centre in the town. We dropped her off and headed down through Bray to find the knitting shop .
One of the littlest farmers was not pleased when I told him where we were going at 14yrs old a knitting shop with your Mam is not the place to be seen :). We found the shop just off the main street in Bray and when you walk in you are hit by the huge array of colours from really bright to more neutral colours. Then you have all the different sizes , different textures and every shade under the rainbow to choose from.
When I had my look around I picked 14 balls of pink wool and a pattern for a throw the only thing they didn’t have were very long 9mm needles and I called to two other shops as well and no one had any either but as soon as I find some I will get started when I will get it done I don,t know :).
We headed back to the civic centre to wait for Granny and while we waited we had some lunch in the Betelnut Cafe in the centre the food was lovely and so were the staff. We headed home and on the way I got a call from The Farmer to collect milk powder and white lime . The farm is never very far away.
Coffee cake in the making.
Flour bread and brown soda with seeds ready for the oven.
What plans do you have for this Wednesday evening ? Do any of them include cake , peace and quiet and a good book ? That’s my plan :).
Enjoy your evening.
