The unanimous decisions were...

...that Fyberspates new Vivacious DK is a truly fabby yarn with great stitch definition and wonderful colours and texture. And that the chocolate cake was pretty good too!

Yeah, this was the  yarn tasting on Sunday - the first of a series, I'm hoping. There were loads of yarns available - mostly wool, with one or two surprises thrown in; I think I over-estimated how much knitting the average person can manage in a couple of hours.

Other popular opinions were that the Austermann Alpaca Silk is also very soft and lovely, and ranking high on the excellence scale are Debbie Bliss Rialto aran, Crystal Palace Kid Merino and the Adriafil New Zealand...

And for good measure, because no little scrap of wool need ever be wasted, I'm going to knit up a few of Ruth&Belinda's Heartsease Project bags with the remnants.
