Alas, I’ve discovered that The Range (A chain of stores that sells random crap, to be honest) also stocks a multitude of rubber stamps and ink pads. All really cheap. Need I say more?
Swap package from Emily
LOVE IT! There’s a fabulous dress pattern, (I’ve never used a pattern before so I’ll have to practise before I get my teeth into that bad boy!) some fat quarters that are perfect, Sugar ‘n’ Cream yarn in a beautiful blue colourway, cherry print stockings (brilliant!), a tub of Oreos (Not pictured; *wipes crumbs from mouth*) and my favouritest bit – the bag. WOW! It’s so beautifully made and it’s the perfect size and shape to carry my WIPs on the bus to and from college every day 😀
Sorry but I always get terribly gushy about swap packages. Anyway, THANK YOU EMILY! 😀
Progress has been surprisingly quick on this. That or the buses are just getting slower and slower these days. I’ll be at the decreases in a jiffy, and then on to the picking up of 46914863 stitches. I HATE picking up stitches.
My new college friend Gaenor crochets hats, you see. So she’s started me off crocheting now. I think I’ve reached the start of the decreases but I have no idea what to do now, so I’ll have to wait ’til Monday morning and ask her to sort it out! Anyway yes, it isn’t turning in to a triangle, which is excellent news. All my crochet attempts up ’til now have ended in tears and triangles.
Lots of people at college have started knitting – someone suggested I start a knitting group!
