Wool from Wales

Last year when I was in Wales I went a bit mad buying wool and fabric as I came across some great shops & woollen mills. As this trip was not so much a holiday but a research visit there was less time for such things as shopping but I did find a nice little wool & fabric shop in Newcastle Emlyn where the flowery cotton is from.
The groovy Noro wool was from the excellent wool shop in Fishguard. I came across the bags of brown wool & cream Peruvian in a charity shop in Aberaeron.

Whilst I've been away I've started crocheting some new squares for a blanket. I think if I try and make at least one square every evening then it shouldn't take me years to finish as the only other blanket I started has been on the go for about 4 years and is still a work in progress!

Your little crochet squares are lovely. :)
I do that with blankets too, I start with great gusto and then get side-tracked!!
Gorgeous fabric too!!
