I loved knitting with the West Yorkshire Spinners DK yarn that I had bought in Scotland a couple summers ago. It is a Bluefaced Leicester yarn and I find myself gravitating more often toward knitting more with sheepy yarns and less with superwash yarns. When I was buying this yarn I thought that one could only find this yarn in Scotland or England but I soon discovered it in a Canadian yarn shop on a trip to Vancouver. 88 Stitches in Langley, British Columbia has a great selection of it both in DK and Aran weight.

I used my leftover Woolfolk yarn for the flowers and it worked perfectly with the WYS yarn. I added some Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Yarn in Tidal for that punch of colour.
I can hardly wait until it's done.
Gotta go...must get back to knitting. Have a great week!
