This is why I love looking in charity shops for yarn as 1, its really cheap and 2, you never know what you will find! Very naughty of me as I don't really *need* anymore as I wanted to use up everything I've got first but for 50p per ball and it all being 100% cotton I couldn't really leave it there, so I had £10 worth which was almost all the balls they had. It will all get used for something and I justified it by thinking its there when I do need it!
Must admit I do like working with 100% cotton, I can feel the difference on the crochet hook, it is so smooth and glides off the hook.
I had (going clockwise)...............
* x1 white South Maid
* x2 mint Coats
* x2 pink Sirdar soft
* x7 cream Wendy Supreme
* x1 cream Patons
* x2 white Jaeger Siena
* x1 lilac (no label)
* x2 yellow Coats
* x2 pink (no label)
It was one round too small as you can see here This afternoon I crocheted one more round to make it fit.
I am running out of wool, eeeeek! I have tried to do a "pattern" on this side but to use up equal amounts of the white and grey wool as I don't have much grey left.
Project to be completed tomorrow........

Very pleased today as well as going out, shopping, crocheting I also did ALL of the ironing from last week, it is now all done and put away. I am up to date!
For some reason even though it was cold, raining and going dark outside I knew she would come home in her PE kit, shorts and t-shirt instead of getting changed.
House was lovely and warm for her to come back to :-)
(P.S. still haven't transferred the holiday flowers to a vase, they are still in the pop bottle!)
