Ask and you shall receive...

So many op-shopping bloggers have used this post title! Now it's my turn! I have a lovely shrug pattern sitting here waiting to be knit, copious amounts of divine yarns to choose from, but not the right needles. After kindy drop off today, I ducked in to one of my usual op-shops to have a ferret around in the hope of finding 3.75mm needles. I pretty much only knit on circulars, even if knitting flat, so I was thrilled to find circular 3.75mm needles! Hooray! I picked up some lovely things while I was there.

My op-shop loot from today; a gorgeous big basket, a new bag, two sewing patterns, knitting needles, kids knit poncho and a knit cardi for one of Ms 2's dolls.

I picked up these two patterns for 50c each. They are my style of clothing and I can't wait to find the time to get stuck into them. I actually have a top my mum bought me from Colorado that I had been trying to work out how to replicate because I wear it everywhere, and it's identical to one of these! Hooray!

I have been getting stuck into kids winter knitting and intend to make just about all my childrens' winter knits, but when I see a super cute kids knitted poncho like this, for $4, I can't pass it up! Fits Ms 6 months perfectly. Hooray!

I picked up this brand new Sportsgirl bag for myself. It's a real mummy bag- you know the one- a big bag you can stuff heaps into with pockets everywhere for the millions of things you need to take with you everywhere you go. Brand new faux leather, in a gorgeous green, hooray! And I got something for me! Double hooray!
