As I said yesterday I have been looking forward to my exams being over so I can go wool shopping. So I set off this morning to go and re-stock my wool stash.
Here is what I bought:
I'm making myself a lovely snuggly cowl using a pattern by HappyBerry so I bought a huge 200g ball of James C. Brett Chunky wool.
I bought some Sirdar Click (as it was reduced) for The Boy's birthday fingerless mitts.
Also as I mentioned I want to make a Tetris blanket so I bought lots of wool for that (the purple is the only colour missing but I already had that:
Annoyingly, I forgot the black that I needed for the background so I will need to pop back for that.
I did get some funny looks for having that much wool - both from the shop assistants and from the people I passed on my way home.
I also love my stash bag for my Tetris blanket. I've gotten to a point of commandeering every canvas bag I can find and The Boy now looks out for free ones for me - this one is from a family friend who works at the Royal Institute and was promoting his work in Liverpool recently.
And finally, as it is Friday, I have to post my finished projects.
I decided to make headbands for my teddy bear using this pattern for the bow but experimenting with the straps - either crochet chains or bands with little ear-holes:
Doesn't she look lovely!
