Last Monday we had arranged to meet my brother and his wife for lunch halfway between their house and ours.Looking at the map I realised we would be going quite close to Black Sheep Wools.They have a great craft barn and stock all makes of wool including all 58 shades of Stylecraft DK which is brilliant for blankets.They have a café so with OH with his coffee and a paper I indulged my self for 45 minutes.
I bought some extra wool to complete the above blanket(only started to use up some stash but I always run out and have to buy more)
Over the winter I want to make a blanket for the conservatory.The rug is various shades of greens and cream.Obviosly I couldn't take the rug so it done out of my head and although on here they don't look to match,they do.
Thenin the bargain bit I spotted this Debbie Bliss reduced to £2.49 a ball.Bargain.I will have someof that.
I only bought one ball ofsock wool.Very restrained!
I treated myself to a new cross stitch kit(why it is on itsside I have no idea.
I find buying yarn off the internet very tricky.Colours are never accurate so this was an opportunity not to be missed.This lot should keep me busy over the coming months but I must say the amount of wool is a little daunting.Watch this space!!!
Watching the Olympics will get me started.
Have a great weekend everyone.Babrbarax
