Hand Spun, Hand dyed & The Number 8

Whilst in London, I took a nostalgic ride on my old bus route home
- the No. 8. 
I enjoyed the journey through the city, but was keen to arrive at my destination to seek out some hand spun and hand dyed yarns.
Finally I arrived at the stop for Globe Road, just after Bethnal Green Tube.

I've been wanting to visit this shop for a while and the window display didn't disappoint..

 drop spindles  and hand spun yarn ,

 Inside, and eclectic mix of yarn and various sculptures

including this crocheted plastic bag pelican in a nest constructed from various hooks, yarns and knitting needles .

All, in all a worthwhile trip on the No. 8 along with some worthwhile purchases !
