You know sometimes, just sometimes, I do something daft .....
no really, I do!
So there was I, week after week seeing ALOT of cones of what looks much like Shetland wool in a charity shop.
First they were £1.50 each,
then a £1 each and none of them got sold,
perhaps because they were oddly wound.
There are 2 colours, 2 shades of brown and a cream, but wound half n half on each cone, no idea why.
I guessed they would felt up after knitting but wasn't going to pay a £1 a cone, although in truth they were worth that and more. So I just looked at them each week.
Then off the cuff, I asked the manager how many of those cones there were and would she maybe take 50p each cone, if I bought them all?
Not really expecting that she'd agree you know?
Cough ... cough ....
39 cones ......................... yes 39!
So of course I bought them all, and having crocheted a hexi shape, it does soften up nicely when washed and felts up too, thankfully!
