We returned to the La Droguerie earlier in the week. I admit to being just a litle bit intimidated by La Droguerie and the whole process of asking for the wool so ended up calling Ben back from the toy shop with the boys to help me translate.
So, using my newly bought wool, I finished one leg of the leg warmers. Yes, I started in a different wool before leaving Austalia and finished one leg in different wool earlier in the week, but hey! I'm on holidays. I will definitely finish the other leg in this wool. I promise myself.
Yes, that is Oliver in the blue jacket racing off, desperate to find a shop with lego, not fabric, not wool, lego!
We went back to La Droguerie today because, well let's face it, I'm getting a bit over the leg warmers. Don't get me wrong, it is a super cute pattern and I really enjoy (!!!!) knitting with the double pointed needles, I really do, but I feel a bit like I'm 'French Knitting' . Like I'm 7 again and knitting tubes. I'm going to finish the other leg and then move onto something else.. a scarf...? Well that's hardly exciting but Elliot needs one. If you have any ideas of something that's easy but is a little bit of a challenge let me know. I went back to La Droguerie today and bought some Alpaca because the ladies said it would be warmer. Again, I think that's what they said! Yes, I've got a bit of a blue thing going on at the moment. I asked if I could take a photo of them winding the wool but they said photos were forbidden.
P.S. Do you like David Sedaris? I love him and think he is just so funny. I am always reminded of this piece of his when in France... my French is not great, so find myself saying "d'accord" quite a bit! If you can find him reading it is even funnier.
