Did you all know that Sainsbury is now doing yarn? Might be handy for some who live far from yarn shops.

No Jayne, I didn't know there was one. Last time I was through in Perth was to see a glass exhibition in the museum. I had a good shop and prowl with my mom and Harrison. We ended up walking in to a lovely craft day on its big opening and I got a good deal on some charity shop yarns too.

Oh i've been off line for a week and a bit due to broadband problems and ill but actually had to buy more wool! I've done one and a half blankets though so been productive. And last week my mom sent 10 knitted teddies and 10 hats i'd done by airmail! She suck the cost via my dad's business. I've got a crazy idea that it would be great to get up to 10 blankets by dec if Jigsaw will keep on taking them until then.

Oh, I am a little jealous of you getting to the bottom of your stash. My yarn seems to be breeding. I have loads even though I am trying to crochet as fast as my hook will allow.

yes its a HUGE incentive to actually finish off blankets! I've got another 3 nearly ready to take up to Jigsaw tomorrow.  And 2/3 of the squares needed for a 4th blanket. But I am actually running out of wool yarn!

Well done Mary. Aren't the Jigsaw staff lovely. I have just finished off another blanket too and my sister has offered to take it to the store for me on her way into work.

Hobby Craft and Creative Stitches are back on this year at the SECC

and

I know the October one is a bit far off yet but the March one will be here before we know it. Usually they have a few yarn stalls and some great buys.

Might see some of you there.
