Vintage Wool

Last week I spoke about how little things can make me smile and this wool is another example of that. I woke up recently with a sudden urge to knit again. It might be the weather or me getting older but the urge was there. I saw some wool while grocery shopping and realised that wool is really expensive! I thought that I’d rather wait and find the perfect wool before buying. I spotted this wool at a charity shop and bought it immediately. I mean, who remembers a time when Ackermans sold wool?! I asked Rueben’s dad and he says he remembers and it was a very long time ago. I hope to make something very special with this vintage wool.
