I found this little bundle of 3 ply pure wool in the charity shop for 50p, the most gorgeous primrose yellow. Really old-fashioned, with labels intact on 4 of the balls. Amazing what still turns up, isn't it? Probably destined for socks, I think.
This is my tin cosy! LOL. I found a savings tin in the charity shop where I found the wool; it was purple and had some nonsense on theside about saving for shoes or soemthing - bit bling! So, I knitted it a cosy of its own to smarten it up. It is sealed, and you can only get at the money by using a tin opener. I hope to fill it before I succumb to the opener! :)
This is the pink and green balled up ready to go; I'm very pleased with the colour combination i this, I think it's really pretty. Still got a notion to weave with it, rather than knit. We'll see...............
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
