It's in the bag!

Now, what's in the bag?

Whoo - wool! I couldn't leave it in the Charity Shop now, could I? £4 for all these balls of yarn. The left hand side is crying out to become a Christmas Holly blanket. The right hand side is black and is always useful for edging.

The turquoise reminded me of a cushion I saw on holiday.

I loved all the bright colours. Oh there goes another idea. Too many projects on the go at the moment, though.


  1. It would have been rude to leave it behind!

  2. Oh PLEASE tell me that you took the 2nd picture when you got home - I am worried about you going down to the Charity Shops in this damp weather in your bare feet!!

    1. I walk in flip flops except when it's raining, up until about the end of November.

  3. Sadly the thrifts shops here in Canada rarely sell wool, thats why whenever I am in England or NZ I have to lug home bags and bags of 'found' yarn

  4. Great buy.I always get my wool stash for crafting from charity shops.I just hope that not everyone cottons on to it!

  5. What a bargain!

  6. Just love a deal like that, now to find the time to play with it all!!

  7. What a bargain. I can never seem to find any wool in charity shops, I'm obviously visiting the wrong ones. Can you believe that Eleanor wanted some black yarn the other day and I didn't have a scrap. I think I must have every other colour.
