I spent three hours yesterday evening knitting, chatting, drinking tea and eating carrot muffins with three other knitters. It's the second time I go to this yarn store's open knit night and I really like it there. It's a small store with a great selection of yarns that I've never seen before. She sells a lot of Danish yarns.
I ended up buying yarn for the bolero on the front page of this book. I've always thought I can't wear short boleros as I'm tall and it'd look as if I bought a cardigan in a kid's store or shrunk the cardigan when washing it. Or ran out of yarn in case it looks homemade. But... I ahve a tall colleague and she wore the cutest bolero a couple of weeks ago and it didn't look strange at all. So, I'm giving it a shot. Wish me luck and hold your thumbs! :)
