My trips to the op shop have been severely curtailed by work. However necessity prevailed. Above is a retro knitting book I picked up circa??? any ideas?? Also picked up these handy little embroidery books with great clear diagrams.
Op shops are great places to put together an outfit for a themed party. A $3 netball skirt, much shortened and a chesty bond with the c made from the skirt offcuts was an easy solution for daughter's costume for an 18th.
