I love browsing around charity shops - you never know what you might find. Some days there's nothing of interest and other days you might unearth a little gem. Today I had a walk up to the animal rescue charity shop during my lunch break at work in the hope of finding some buttons for a purse I'm making. It's one of those places where everything is a jumble and you need to have a good rake around.
I found these lovely silver coloured buttons with pearl coloured centres, for 30p
There were loads of old knitting patterns but mainly from the 1980's. Also, a basket of machine knitting yarn oddments on cones. I bought this purple (my favourite colour) cone for 40p
I've spent the evening winding some of it into a ball while I was watching telly. I've wound off about 50grams and I've still got loads left. The thinness of the yarn means it'll go a long way. I have a pattern for crochet fingerless gloves that'll be just right for this and maybe a skinny scarf too.
I also bought these needlecraft magazines for £1.
I haven't had a chance to look through them properly yet so I may take them to bed for a bit read. There were a few more of them so I'll have to go back another day. Also some dolls house magazines, cross stitch patterns and magazines and other needlework magazines. I might need a few visits!
I was enjoying myself so much I was late back to work!
