A slight obsession with books

Reading and Fibrecrafts

Lots of lovely post


The postman has been several times this week. I do love getting exciting post and this has been a bumper week.

First came the latest issue of Love Patchwork and Quilting so I was able to sit and have a good read and see what else I fancied making. When I get time, that is. On Saturday, Simply Crochet arrived so that meant another sit down with a cuppa for some more inspiration.


On Wednesday I ordered some yarn from the Wool Warehouse. I want to make the hooded scarf from the last issue of Simply Crochet and didn’t have any suitable yarn. I was looking at a pretty dark-raspberry colour but it was out of stock so I got a nice sensible denim blue instead. It’ll go with everything and I do like blue.


While I was ordering that, I noticed that if you spent £25 the postage was free and as I wasn’t far short of that with the crochet hook that I’d added, I got some more yarn to make one of the projects in my queue. Why spend £3 on postage when you can spend it on yarn?


On Saturday, I had a very nice parcel arrive. I’d had an email from Constable & Robinson a few days before asking if I’d like to read a book that’s coming out in March. It sounded brilliant so of course I said yes please. This is the book.


I’ve got a couple of library books to read first, but then I’ll be diving into Ruby Slippers. I’ll let you know what I think.

The books I read, the things I make, the places I go.

  1. I totally agree – why spend £3 on postage when you can get more for free postage ^^


  2. Good old Stylecraft Special, it really is the bees knees, I have nearly every colour under our bed 😀 Fiona


  3. Lovely colours – I’m looking forward to seeing the poncho! I’ve been waiting for Simply Crochet but I think it’s another week until it’s in the shops – is it a good issue? I bought Inside Crochet on Friday for a read – I liked the camper van on the cover!


    • It’s not as good as the last issue, for things that I’d like to make. There’s a lot of yoga stuff in it. There is a scarf that uses a nice rib stitch that I like the look of. I definitely want to make that. And the free gift is a huge button that goes with that.


Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment - I love to read them.
