I took a bag of stuff to the charity shops and brought nothing back.
I made my marmalade, 12 jars now in stock.I enjoyed a film evening at Pam's when we watched the funny and visually delicious Heartbreaker, starring the fortunate Vanessa Paradis. She made me want to move to Monaco, buy a beautiful silk dressing gown, lose a lot of weight and take up with Johnny Depp, actually I've always wanted to do the latter, OK the latter two, and I do have a silk dressing gown that is quite glam but a size 14 not 6.I finished another pair of Regia socks for the market stall (there is a clue to my downfall behind the sock). Mr FF spotted them, liked them very much and asked if he could have them, I do have enough of this yarn because I got quite a few orders for this colour combination so he could be lucky.
I took possession of 8 balls of Merino.Note no mention of purchase (yet) as this is a commission to knit the Smiling Jacket from Louisa Harding's Miss Bea's Rainy Day. Such a great little pattern book that I've used quite a lot, I'm currently on a campaign to get the kids I know into hand knits so there could be more. Amelia by the way was apparently delighted with her little cardigan, showing it off and hugging it round her, bless.
Finally, own up time. I've failed in my stash reduction efforts because Kemps decided to reduce their organic cotton and I bought 8 balls for £1.50 each. I did think when I placed the online order that I might use up more sock wool before the parcel arrived, but oh no efficient as ever it was here in a flash.The colour is borage which I had imagined from the website would be bluer than it is but still a really nice shade. So now the scores are Stash 5 Jen 4 (we are talking 100 gs here), must try harder, must knit faster, must stop speaking too soon.
