Op Shopping


 I popped into the local Op Shop yesterday afternoon 'just in case' and actually did really well for a change.
Lovely lovely wool enough to knit a garment or 2. And vintage embroidered tablecloths, doilys and runners.

 There should be enough in here to knit me a little something or a new coat for one of the dogs.


 This is Vintage Patons Fuzzy Wuzzy. 55% Angora 45% Wool. It is unbelievably soft and light and there is so much in the bag! Definitely be knitting something amazing from this.

Somebody has already done the work on this. So very very soft!  Just long enough for a neck warmer.

Fuzzy Wuzzy! You have stimulated 'vintage thoughts' of the fuzzy wuzzy bolero I had s a child...they were all the rage! It will be good to see what you do with the wool.
