A quick trip to the tip this morning in the pouring rain, but we had to empty the ash bin and take some rubbish, so my knitting and I hopped in the car and went along. Just as well I did, came back with this lot for the princely sum of one British pound LOL
Three balls of wool, three pairs of good knitting needles. an unused card of decently wide bias binding, a lovely old wooden cotton reel with a few yards of black linen button thread ( 7p from dear old Woolworths.............), and just over a yard of a nice piece of lace.
Oh yes, and what it's all sitting on - an almost new, unused Le Creuset griddle pan!
You can keep your John Lewises and your shopping centres, your fancy schmancy "cookware" shops and your overpriced under quality "haberdashery" (not sure if it any longer qualifies for that lovely word to be applied to some of the stuff we have to put up with these days) - give me secondhand from the tip any day LOL
I know how lucky I am for lots of reasons to have access to such a wonderful facility.:)
