I heart charity shops!

"I'll just pop to town, see if I can get some good pencils with rubbers on the end.."

3 hours and 8 Charity shops later (there's 11 in Chesterfield town centre but 3 were shut, Saturday afternoon)...I returned home with this lot!
I think the wooden knitting needle box is my favourite, plus, I got loads of needles including giant ones and my favourites...coloured needles, and all sorts of stitch holders from years gone by!
It was the funnest shopping day I've had in a long time, I didn't get the pencils I wanted, but I didn't let that dampen my extremely high bargain bonanza spirits!

Knitted odd-bods...

I have been wanting to get good at hand knitting for a while now, but I've never had a hand knit project exciting enough to keep me going. You can only imagine how excited I was when I found a knitting book by Donna Wilson filled with patterns to make your own creatures, wooo
A few weeks and alot of learning later, my first complete, fully shaped hand knitted friend, sleepy pom...

I heart him, he's all squishy and feels lovely. I would encourage anyone looking for fun knitting projects to check out Donna's 'odd bod bunch' book. I have just made a start on my next one, it is bigger than this one, wish me luck!

Casting off,
