She shoots, she scores!

Ok, so I know I was supposed to be on a strict fibre diet until after I return from holiday. I was doing well, even resisting discount Cashmerino over at Kangaroo. But when I wandered into the Marie Curie charity shop on Gloucester Road and saw this lovely stuff, I was powerless to resist. I saw that there were 2 bags... both weighted at over 500g. The plastic had been ripped so I slipped my hand inside to feel the fibre - it was warm, soft, and likely to be a blend of wool, acrylic and mohair. I looked over at The Boy who just pulled a face - he suspects we have enough yarn. What does he know?

Bag in hand, I approach the lass on the checkout to ask about the price. She looks at me blankly. She has little or no knowledge of wool.

"Ummm... £1? Is that ok."

Grin spreads across my face.

"Yes, that's cool. I'll take it all."

I leave the place £2 lighter and with a lot more wool.

Sorry for the poor-quality picture, my camera doesn't like to play ball on overcast days. I might try to squeeze myself a cropped cardigan from the pretty purples and pinks. The brown will be donated to The Boy to help fulfil his dream of a festival-worthy poncho...

Blimey, I don't blame you for breaking your 'diet'! Good find!
