As lovely as it is to have a break from the routine, there is also a certain comfortable peace that comes from returning home. To your cosy PJs, to your comfy bed and of course, to your stash. Is it just me that suffers from seperation anxiety when you have to be apart from the stash for more than a few days.

I have made good progress on the projects that I took away with me but predictably, as soon as I home I am ruffling through my storage bins in search of something new to cast on. It doesn't help that I recently came across these beautiful skeins of DK from The Fibre Company. To further compound matters these colourways have names wonderfully evocative of my recent holiday. The grey colourway is Scafell Pike and the grellow is Buttermere - where I was walking just the other day.

These skeins are crying out to be a new shawl design - which may or may not involve brioche. I am yet to decide but a bit of swatching might just have to happen today - just to see.
