Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. I have been knitting on and off for 50 years and I recently learned to crochet. I love looking for wool bargains and making them into something useful. I mainly knit for charity. I occasionally knit for myself and family members if I find a really good pattern or if they ask nicely!!

More free wool...

Look what Hubby brought home from work yesterday. A colleague knows that I knit and brought in all this lovely wool for me. Most of it is acrylic double knit which is exactly what I use.  Believe it or not, the charities that I knit for usually request acrylic because it is easier to wash.

Most of this is destined to be turned into blankets and clothes for children and babies. My friend, who knits like a demon for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, will also receive her share. If you see two "ladies who lunch" drooling over a bag of wool next month, that will be us!

Today is a brilliant sunny day. So, while we still have daylight, I'm off to sort the colours. Bliss!
