    Hello to all you wool/knit-a-holics

    It’s taken me ages to catch up again
    Thanks for wondering about me and thanks to all of you for your good wishes and hugs, pm’s & emails,brought a tear to my eyes reading all your posts & seeing your messages for me (& my mum)
    This is such a friendly place isn’t it?
    daft aren’t I ?

    When my M.E. is really bad, I just can’t do anything (hard to explain .. you don’t won’t to hear all about it here) and I also had that awful bug that’s been going around so have been in bed for a lot of the time since I last posted and trying to keep an eye on my Mum and Dad
    Sometimes I’ve managed a quick look at what’s been happening, but didn’t have enough va va voom to manage to post on the thread myself


    Your blanket’s really pretty
    Well done on acquiring your wool donation!

    & all you peeps who’ve been unwell

    with your group of little girls

    ‘Why can't people have open minds’
    One of the reasons is that,
    “An open mind leaves a chance for someone to drop a worthwhile thought in it”
    And it’s too risky/scary
    Just adopt this mantra

    If you’re still looking for 3 ply patterns you might like these

    Repeat after me
    ‘I must not buy more wool ...
    I must reduce my stash’ lol

    I will be sending you a little parcel this week which will hopefully be useful for your choirboys event

    I saw this and thought of you !


    ‘What wonderful people we have on here’
    Agreed !

    Sadly too late to say Bon Voyage ... but thinking of you & I have sent you an email
    I will update my totals when you are back on line

    Pippa.S re quote
    ‘We knitters are lovely people, supportive, generous, helpful, funny, caring, inventive, sharing and very clever’
    Hmmm so THAT’S why you bought more wool
    Re storage
    These are good ... out of stock @ the moment but you could see if they get more,default,pd.html
    or ikea

    Glad you’re back online & re your ‘I'm hanging on in there’

    Glad you liked your piccies
    Your real ones are great!
    I will be pm you re the baby in Spain

    In Search Of Me
    I love your username it reminds me of myself!

    DS1 said "Oh no Mum, the end has dropped off your knitting stick!" think it went down the back of the sofa so now I have 2 ends to worry about my knitting sliding off!
    Wine corks !
    What a result though, finding a whole new stash - you won't have to buy any expensive French wool at this rate’
    Ooh La La
    Hope your ear infection has gone; they’re really painful aren’t they?

    You made me laugh re
    ‘Hello you wonderful people you!
    I'd like to volunteer to knit something for you - but the last thing I knitted was a scarf which took me 2 years and a lot of swearing Basically, I can barely knit! I have some double knitting wool and sort of thin chopstick sized needles and enough knitting ability to cast on and plain/purl. Will I be any use?’

    I’m sure your needles will soon be flying!
