Do you remember, a couple of weeks ago, I said that some of the ladies at Knit and Natter wanted me to buy some baby wool so that they could start a new project - knitting for the premature baby unit?
We still have a fair bit of donated wool which we are working through but no baby wool. So off I went to a local Post Office which also sells good quality wool very cheaply. When I went to pay, the owner of the shop commented on the huge amount of wool I had bought and how I was going to be very busy. So I explained that it wasn't all for me but for the group to knit. He asked what we do with what we knit.
"Oh well if it's for charity you get a discount!" he smiled. "And wait there....."
He went to the back of the shop and brought back a huge sack of wool. "You can have this for free - my wife used to charity knit but she's stopped now. I've been waiting for ages for someone to come in and buy wool for a charity project so that I could give them all this."
It is not often I am speechless (is it Jill??!!!!!)
So wool donations continue to come in - some whole balls and lots of them - enough for jumpers - and some part balls.
Even odd teeny tiny bits are making some lovely things like this boys' scarf.
And I even enjoy sewing in the ends.
Note to self: must learn how to weave ends in as I change colour - do you know how to do that? Please tell if you do!
Happy Thursday - keep warm.
