There was a good range of DK colours all from the Sirdar Country Style range, looking very like a ripple blanket for the man in my life to me.
Then I opened another one and there were 51 balls of yarn from magazines! I have been buying these off Ebay just recently but not in quantities like this. Little M enjoyed sorting them into piles. 'Did you get my strawberry shoes in the picture?' she said. They are blanket heaven. They are acrylic but have a slight sheen to them. I have used them to make the flowers before.
There were some mixture balls but these are prefect for my crochet classes if I use my Knitmaster to wind them into 30g balls. What is a knitmaster I hear you ask?...
I was given it by my very good friend who moved into a house and found it in a cupboard. We both wondered what it was and she said if I could find out what it was for I could have it. It is the best wool winder ever, the children love helping and winding the handle. I took it to knit and natter one night when my shoulder was bad a few weeks ago and they all went bananas for it. They have booked it in for the next meeting so that they can do some skein to ball winding whilst drinking wine. I have become very popular!
I delved deeper and found fabric for patchwork, and large pieces of felt which will be great for lining.
I am exhausted thinking about what I can do with it. It is making my head explode! Jo xx
