Whose been shopping?

I don't have anything finished to show today though I am making good progress on a couple of things on my weekly list. Instead I'm going to show you what I bought today. This year I've really been trying to cut back on the amount of stuff I buy, I think I already have more than enough to last a lifetime but every now and then a girl needs to treat herself right?


It started off innocently enough I was driving by the craft shop and thought I ought to replace that block of Fimo that I used when making the skeleton doll a few weeks back. Somehow I found myself in the knitting section and before I knew it a pattern book and some wool had jumped in my basket. What were you doing with a basket Angelcat when you only went in for a tiny block of clay? I hear you cry, well sadly I don't have an excuse for that I guess I was doomed from the start.
This pattern book from Sidar really caught my eye, here is a picture of the back which shows a few more of the designs.
Sadly most of the tops would look horrendous on my large frame but I really love some of the hats and there is also a really cute bag too. Hopefully it won't be hat weather for too much longer but there is always next winter to plan for. I bought these to make the stripey beret middle right in the picture above. If it goes ok then I think I will also make the flower hat (bottom left) and the bag (picture below). If I had the perfect figure I would dress like this. Maybe in the next life.....

It's been such a bonus having a craft shop open again in Chippenham! I spend too much time in there..
Good to see you planning for next winter already.

Those are some lovely looking patterns. Can't wait to see what you make.

I always get a basket...just in case. I am really good at not spending money...except on fibres...and books!

Ooh, I'd dress like that too, if I had her figure - and if I could wear wool :)
