Wool glorious wool

I have finished my poncho, it is big enough to keep me warm. Not sure about adding tassels as I tend to catch them on everything, I am going to wash it and hope for the best.

But I have a new start...Yay! 😘

Love this, it is wool I bought at Yarndale and it was not cheap! It was from the Natural dye studio, Merino wool 100%
Ok off to hook some more xxx

Sunday stroll

Had a lovely walk today at Foremark Reservoir. Nice when the sun was out.

Picked some berries as I wanted to take a picture.

Have had a bit of a crisis with the poncho, I have ran out of the Orange with only a couple of inches to go!!

It has grown a bit!

But it still needs more. I am quite pleased with progress even though I have been off work, with back pain. It has kept me out of mischief!

Ha ha of course it is....

Yes it is a poncho, although I have re-started it as the neck was too tight,

 I have looked at different pictures of ponchos my favourite being one that Lucy of Attic24 has done I loved the pattern she did, but the colours were fab but too bright for me, I have chosen some scheepjes stonewashed wool that I saw somewhere on blogosphere, I can't remember where. 
Thought I would share this little cute project bag I bought at Yarndale, I love this fabric!

Bag lady

Not sure if you know this about me, but I have a thing for bags, not designer bags( well yes I wouldn't say no ) but all kinds I love souvenir bags, but all kinds!
I have bought another yesterday at the hospital, I was feeling a little off it as I had just been in an MRI scanner, yes I buy to make myself feel better lol!

Here is my crochet bag in use
I could show you lots more, but I won't bore you!

Stash I forgot to share

From tea towels to wool
I love buying bits and pieces.

I started this bowl in the workshop I booked, must finish it...

The next day was spent in York and it was such a sunny day!

We went on an open top tour bus

OOps forgot to show you my pins, maybe next year Yarndale will do magnets as well!
