Look what I received in the post this morning, from my lovely friend Kirsty over at The Leopard Anchor...
How lovely?! And completely unexpected. It is two balls of wool, a crochet hook and a copy of a book called The Happy Hooker, along with the most amazing leopard print tissue paper EVER - I must get some of this!
I have spent about 20 minutes trying to start a simple chain stitch and I'm not having much luck... I WILL get the hang of it though, I am determined to make msyelf a granny blanket for our new house!
In other news, I made just under £300 on eBay yesterday, selling 48 of my 66 items. I can't believe it! The money will go straight into our "North America Road Trip" fund so I am not tempted to waste it. It will go some way to filling the hole created by my agency cancelling nine days supply work this term - grrr.
