I have just finished a pair of socks .I have no more sock wool so decided to buy some more as C said he could do with some new ones.I usually use Wool Warehouse who are brilliant but all I kept getting was "out of stock" over and over again.I wanted some red Aran wool.Again "out of stock".I tried other suppliers and got the same.I eventually found a limited supply at Laughing Hens.My initial thought was that in lockdown everyone was knitting socks! Then when it arrived today I found out it is made in Germany.So, is it a Brexit supply problem?And I still havnt found any red aran!
I have also been using up my stash crocheting granny squares.I have done more than sixty.Nowthe job of joining them together.This is the second blanket I have done during lockdown and they will go to a homeless/ refugee charity.
Thankfully I suffered no reaction to my covid jab.
We have had quite a bit of snow recently so I cant get out for a walk.I am just getting bigger and stiffer as the days go by.
Roll on an end to all this.
I ordered some German yarn weeks ago, no sign of it yet.ReplyDelete
So sorry for the yarn shortage, but your blanket is wonderful. You are so kind to make it to donate. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
I will learn to crochet one day. I love your socks and the blanket. Very thoughtful to donate it. I hope you get your red Aaron wool soon.ReplyDelete

I LOVE those socks.ReplyDelete
I tend to get my yarn from Deramores and they have also been out of a lot of things, especially kits. I never thought of it being a Brexit problem. xx
Lovely socks, I got my last order of yarn from Love Crafts, they seem to have a good supply and it didn't take long to arrive either.ReplyDelete
I haven't had any socks on the needles since before Christmas, I can't remember going so long before but my knitting mojo just isn't there at the moment. Urgh, joining squares, that's the downside to granny square blankets, though I joined the squares as I went along with the last granny square blanket I made, it made it so much easier. I'm sure the homeless or refugee charity will be very glad though so it makes it all worthwhile.ReplyDelete
Your blanket when completed will be a real treasure to whoever receives it through the charity.ReplyDelete
It's a privilege to share this miraculous testimony to the world. I'm Beth Walters from England. My husband divorced me 4 months back and I have been filled with remorse for I didn't know what to do to amend issues with my husband. I searched for help on the internet on how I could get help in my marriage and I discovered great testifiers about WEALTHY LOVE SPELL who has been progressive with his spells. I got in touch with him and behold, Dr.Wealthy told me that he will prepare a spell for me that will bring back my husband. I was skeptical but I had no other option but to work with him. 2 days later, my husband called me that he's coming back home and from that day till this moment, we have been living peacefully. He is back now with so much love and caring. today i am glad to let you all know that this spell caster has the power to bring lovers back and the most surprising thing is that our love is very strong now, every day is happiness and joy. and There is nothing like being with the man you love. I will highly recommend Dr.Wealthy to anyone one out there who needs help whatsoever. If you have any problem contact Dr.Wealthy, i give you 100% guarantee that he will help you!!.ReplyDelete
