Knitters are simply the best


I do like being organised (stop sniggering at the back there, please). On Saturday, Liz and I went to Creative Stitches at the Brighton Centre to meet up with old friends and perhaps make a purchase or two...


Brilliant bead boxes; screw-top lids (these days I can't get flip-top lids off anything without fountaining the contents all over the floor) on decently-sized containers (each one holds about 50g of seed beads), packed twelve to a lidded box. I spent most of Sunday filling the four boxes that came home with me. And I enjoyed it. Sad, isn't it?

I bought a little yarn, mainly half price Debbie Bliss Soho for felting from Black Sheep, a card of wonderful Fimo buttons and two storage boxes for, er, storing other stuff. It was good to catch up with both Yvonne and Fred who I haven't seen since the show last year.

Highlight of the week though was buying a copy of this


at a decent price from a fellow Raveller. It arrived this morning, meaning that I've only got one out-of-print knitting book (Poetry in Stitches) left on my wish list. The book and a cup of good coffee are calling me...
