Yesterday I knitted the back of the Icelandic jumper, I started the front later on this afternoon however I haven't made much progress on it so far as I had been at college for most of the day as well as opening birthday cards and presents, oh yeah today is my birthday, lol. As you can see all I have knitted today is the mock rib and a start on the fair isle pattern.
My mums friends Mother-in-law has recently died (god rest her soul) and while my mums friend and her husband were clearing out her house they found a huge and I mean huge bin bag of all different types if yarns some vintage and some new, in one of the bags of yarn I found a receipt for two balls of yarn that had been bought from little woods and it was dated 06/01/92 so she must of been collecting all this yarn for some time.
I was lucky to acquire this bundle of yarn so I am definitely going to utilise it as soon as I have finished my current project, we asked the lady who gave me all this if she wanted some money for it and she said don't worry about it, I probably would of only given it to the charity shop and I was instantly astonished, the amount this would probably cost if it was to be eBayed. Here is all the yarn and she also gave me all the complex hand knitting patterns that she used years back so they will be interesting to look threw, I almost feel like Susan with this huge yarn stash, it will keep me knitting though, won't it? lol.
Talk to you later
