I have heard of Liberty cloth and even had a couple of pieces of yardage that someone gave to me years ago, back in the 80s, and I made a dress for Kiti from it, and if I remember correctly, a skirt for myself. The bolts of cotton prints are soft to the touch and they definitely fit the description of eye candy. The rows and rows of cloth line the perimeter of the chandelier gallery.
I gazed, looked away, ran my fingers over the skeins and balls of fiber goodness. But I actually walked out of the store without buying anything. Through the days we toured towers and cathedrals, I kept thinking, "I went to Liberty and didn't buy anything!" I wasn't sure if I was sorry or proud of my resolve to use up my yarn stash in 2008. In the end, on the last day of our time in London, I told the others, "I want to go back to Liberty--just to look!"
The purple bag you see below? Honestly, there is no yarn in it.
I finally chose two knitting books.
Wasn't I good? I'm not sorry I didn't buy some yarn. I do have so much and I can get yarn here in California. But I am glad I bought the Rowan Classic Garden Book Two. I will have hours and hours of enjoyment from the books, reading and planning, even before I pick up my needles and begin to knit.
