Oops!...I did it again

I played with the yarn,
got lost in the shop
Oh baby, baby ....

No apologies to Ms Spears, I'm a Bad Ass Knitter, after all, but I brought home this from the op shop today.

Starting at the top right we have 16 x 50g balls black Panda Coral Cotton (Cotton blend); 2 sets 4 x 2.5mm Addi dpns; 1 set 4 x 2.25mm Addi dpns; 1 only Addi 2mm dpn; 3 kilt pins; 2 x 50g balls black McMahon's Farm Perendale 8ply; 14 x 25g balls white 4ply (has a DJs branding but feels like and is same composition as Patonyle); 20 x 25g grey Embassy 4ply; 1 pair Ivore 6mm straights.

So the Panda cotton is going to be Arial, the dpns will be useful as well as decorative, the black 8 ply is going to be Voodoo wristwarmers for the parcel delivery lady who saves me lots of trips to the Post Office by delivering stuff to my parents' house and who must get cold hands in winter, Mum only wears white socks, Dad won't mind grey ones and the Ivore needles go into the swaps basket for SnB.

Oh my God! How do you FIND this stuff?! Whenever (OK, mostly when) I go into Salvos they just have mismatched pairs of metal needles, scraps of yucky yarn, and not a lot else... you have a charmed life!

Glad to see you're finally heading into Voodoo Territory :)

btw we are having many newbies on sunday and if there are still large needles knocking around in jars they would be tres useful! and guess what....

Unlucky in love, lucky in op-shopping. ;)

Plenty of big needles still in the basket, Spidey.

Boy? Will he be able to deal with the oestrogen levels?

Blimey! May I ask which Op Shop you frequent?!
