We're just back from Kilkenny. Gerard and I went for 2 nights to celebrate Gerard turning 40 (which he did 2 weeks ago). We brought Rory as felt he was too small to leave and I'm so glad we did. I missed the other boys so much. Can't see us going away alone again for a long time - feel like I missed out on so much with them not being with us.

I went to Cushendale Woollen Mills and picked up 4 hanks each of a heathery-blue and a nice red of their aran weight wool.








I also picked up a cute little creation which they call a sheep-dog :D

My husband just turned 40 last week! I totally empathise with missing the children - while it's great to get away and get a break from them; things are pretty fun when they are around. My little guy turns 3 tomorrow - happy days!

Hi there,

Lovely yarns. I looked at their website but no details.

Were they expensive?
