I bought the Adriafil Primula at Bodkins in Benfleet. The owner is very friendly and very helpful and the shop is stuffed full of yarn for all budgets.
I bought the buttons at Craft Arena on the Barleylands craft site in Billericay. Again the owner is very friendly and helpful. More of a craft shop than yarn shop - brilliant for beading.
|Purple Primula already to wear.|
|What shall I wear with it?|
|With denim vest and scarf to wear with jeans.|
|With white vest and contrast scarf to wear with white trousers.|
|With black vest to wear with black capri pants.|
Overall I am very pleased with this make - it fits lovely - despite being smaller than the pattern said it would be!
The yarn is a gorgeous soft merino, cool and warm - perfect all year:)
