S'been a while since I posted a proper entry, and today I feel the urge to organise and update. The whole house moving scenario has so far been a trauma, but is now looking more promising so I'm in a much better frame of mind. I have also been muchly productive, working on a 40 baby sweater project for one manufacturer and a quickie cross stitch for another. I want to try and finish some WIP's this year if I can, especially the knitting ones, so keep an eye on the sidebar as I try to produce a list (roflmao).

Got some great stash yesterday from the nearby Age Concern shop. Found 20 balls of wool in a variagated mulberry that they wanted 50p a ball for. Some of it is quite tangled and has some kind of glue stuck to a few outer strands, but managed to haggle her down to £5 for the lot. Definately enough there for a winter sweater, maybe also a hat and gloves. Found two balls of a pretty yellow bobbly wool for 60p in the Red Cross shop also. Must be my lucky week!
