Constitution: Weak

At least the fall from the "Use What You Have Month" wagon is cushioned by wool.

Sorry everyone, but 22 balls of black Cleckheaton 8ply, all in the same dyelot for $1 a ball was too good an opportunity to walk away from. I will admit that the two balls of Patonyle and four balls of vintage Patons Azalea for a total of $5.50 wasn't strictly necessary, but as I was buying the 8ply anyway...

I did leave lots of other beautiful wool there, though. St VdeP at Curtin if anyone's interested. ;)

You're a very naughty girl!

(Having said that I probably would have done the same thing. But 22 balls - you could knit an elephant blanket with that!)

I am a well upholstered woman and they are 25g balls. This quantity will just make a close fitting t-shaped jumper with short sleeves.

Oops, sorry I just assumed 50g. :-}

In no way was I alluding to the fact you had anything in common with an elephant. Except possibly in the brain department?

Dinna fash, SS, I took no offence at all. :)

Besides, elephants are large, lovely, useful creatures that are worshipped in Thailand. Size is not only relative but attitudes to it are culturally based. To me, fat is a description, not a term of abuse.

The trick is to go often - you get to know the stock and the pricing policies (as such) and sometimes the staff will tip you off to items of interest once they get to know you.
