Economy measures

I went along to the Spinning Guild meeting this morning. Just very briefly, I needed to pay my annual subscription, you see. I couldn't stay, because we do have house guests arriving today.

I truly didn't intend to buy anything at all.

But look at this.


This is 800 grams of Suffolk/Jacob cross fleece, washed and carded by somebody who knows what they are about when they do such things - ie, not me. It is surprisingly soft for a Jacob cross, and the colour is lovely, a deep grey/brown. There should be plenty there for a cardigan jacket of some sort, and believe me, I have ideas already as to the pattern.

And the cost? £7.

Yes, really. I rest my case.
