I'm on holiday. Renting a cottage in the beautiful Pembrokeshire/Ceredigion coast and today we had a geek day. A day spent searching for vintage haberdashery for me and boardgames for Mr HoffiCoffi.
As you can see I got quite a bit of fabric. I seem to have gone for a lemon theme this year. Enough for a few dresses and no piece was more than £1.99 from charity shops.
Although I also found this fab jersey for £2.99, hopefully enough for a dress.
These patterns were only ten pence each! Even though one says twenty pence I still got it for ten. I did point it out to the cashier but she seemed quite insistent on the price so I didn't argue further!
The vintage knitting patterns pictured below are probably my favourite finds. These were less than ten pence each.
There were more in the charity shop but I make a point of not buying anything I don't think I will use. However, I did get this one for the cover alone.
Who could resist a mohair/wool blend called 'shaggy darling'. I know I can't!
I will knit these bedjackets but will wear them outside the bedroom.
Maybe I can use this yarn. Quite a geek day!
