Yesterday I learned to knit. According to my expert buddies it's "not bad at all" for a first attempt. High praise. One of them has also offered to crochet a Moomin for me. I can't crochet (yet) so it would be a good long time before a cuddly Moomintroll entered my life. People are great aren't they!
We went to a craft/vintage fair at the Winter Gardens today, we bought a clip on bow tie for Dan, he needs it for when we go to watch aa showing of Little Shop of Horrors at the same venue next week. I bought a woolly coat and some old smelly fabric to use as a quilt back. Bargains!
People make some great stuff, don't need any of it but it makes life a lot of fun.
