To Brenda, Margaret & Ilse,
Thanks very much for your encouraging comments. 'Onwards and Upwards'!!
Groups get started Joyce, they are often still active locally, but people forget to report back to the Group pages! As Llse says below - finding yarn becomes an obsession!
Llse am certain no yarn/yearn shop will go undiscovered once you step foot in Cumbria - have a lovely trip and post your results!
Good idea about the 5p's for postage. Will definitely use mine for this. They are a pest.
I'm going to Cumbria for a few days. Any recommendations for yearn shopping while I'm there? (I left the typo in, as yearn and yarn could be synonymous at times?)
Many thanks for your encouraging words. I live in BLACKWOOD which used to be in Gwent but is now under Caerphilly County Borough Council. I agree, buying odd balls of yarn can become quite addictive especially if it is a good price, in a charity shop or just happens to be a colour you can't resist!
I have noticed that there is a Welsh group - Stitched in Wales- but it seems to be dead.
All the best, Joyce
Thanks for letting me know, Pam. I'll have a look anyway - any excuse for a yarn hunt!
Hope there is some left Ilse - it was the special offer last week and they were discounting to clear the bin ready for the new offers.
Hi Pam, thanks for the Aldi sparkly wool tip. I'll have a look for it. My stash monster especially loves sparkly glitter yarn and 3 balls for 99p is such a good price at which to feed it !
PS Joyce - meant to say that 25 squares is a big individual parcel - I am one of the ones who sends in bulk but only manage a few myself - there are 2 church groups and many individuals who leave bags full on my doorstep.
Hello Joyce, a great first parcel! whereabouts in Wales do you live? I am right on the Shropshire Wales border near Oswestry.
Went in to Aldi again and there was still some sparkly glitter wool. All the red and white had gone but got some pink and lilac as so pretty with the glitter thread. AND it had been reduced to 99p for 3 balls. Elaine thought it was hilarious that I bought wool when I have 2 wardrobes full here - but that is all needed for the many knitters we have around here. This was for me to knit and you all know about the stash monster that makes you buy wool don't you??? :-)
