Today has been fab, my folks are up from London so we took them on a little jaunt to Ramsbottom via Bury on a steam train on the East Lancs Railway! My Dad loves me so much right now. I've been to Bury before but never the old station - what a surprise it was!
When we arrvied what should be the first thing I see, but Clark Craft right outside the station! This shop was seriously amazing, I could have spent a fortune and all day looking around; there was nothing they didn't have!
My favourite purchase was these vintage looking (aka old) knitting needles in imperial sizes (I think they're about a UK 2) for 90p!
I just LOVE the colour!
We headed off to the town centre, found a lovely little tea shop, wandered some more and eventually I found this absolute bargain of a book in one of the charity shops.
It's about an inch thick or more and is packed full of sewing information!! Much more than my head will ever comprehend but hopefully it will help with the skirt I've started making; more on that another day :-)
This pattern has got to be the best though, Derek the Dinosaur!!!
Closely followed by the cuddly crocodile...!
Hope you're all having a great weekend too, much love!
