I blame Kate. It was she who said I should come up for air after the Knitting Karma episode of last week. Emboldened by her words and the need to give my mother a break from her house guests, I introduced visiting Ange to the joys of op-shopping this morning.
It was fortunate, indeed, that I had Ange with me. The donor of last week's bounty is obviously as ecumenical a donor as I am a shopper, because there, partially obscured by a tatty car seat cover, were 21 more cones of yarn at the Tuggeranong St Vincent de Paul. Together, Ange and I wrestled this windfall (50c a cone) into the car. It was also fortuitous that I had reached the 20% off square of my frequent shopper's card. Several books for Mum and the yarn mountain were mine for $20.25.
My SIL has leant me her camera, so photographic evidence should be available tomorrow.
