I cant resisit wool!
Had a look at Kemps woolshop on line at their bargain wools - got some lovely lime green (80% cotton and 20% linen) for 49p for a 50gm ball (got 4 balls) and some lovely baby yarn for 89p for a 100gm ball (got 6 balls) - also treated myself to a set of bamboo knitting needles for £11.99 (all out of my allowance as treats!) Postage was £5 but its really quick delivery - I ordered it late Monday night and it arrived on Weds morning. Got a nice pattern for a summer jacket for the eldest gd (from one of my eldest dds knitting books)for the lime green and am off to look at Ravelry for a nice free pattern for a shrug for babies. (Also had to pay for lunch today as I was running late and didnt have time to make it!)
