  • What a bargain !

    I am so so chuffed with my bargain of the day... went into town to buy knitting needles (have the urge to knit at the moment) and had a sudden brain wave about going into one of the charity shops to see if they had any and 'hey presto' the little old lady had a whole stash of them behind the counter - yippeee ! Came away with 7 pairs in all sorts of sizes plus 3 crochet hooks all for £4 !! Feels really good to not only get a bargain but also that it all goes towards the Red Cross...

    p.s. also got some lovely chunky wool in the Dorothy House shop !

      Brilliant bargain. We were all watching a set on ebay the other day that sold for over £100.00. They were just a bog standard mixed bunch!
