I spent today in Wolverhampton, having a mooch around the charity shops, the art gallery and drinking a lot of tea! As usual I bought lots of books...
I am justifying the purchase of seven books with the fact that I am reading so much at the moment, and this whole stash cost less than £10, the big bargain of the day being the 1970s copy of "MoominPapa at Sea" which was £1!!
I love the Moomins, Tove Jansson's work is just so delicate and beautiful! I found the book on a stall that sets up in one of the shopping centres - It's not always there, and since I don't get to visit Wolverhampton as often as I used to, I didn't know if it would be on, and they have HUNDREDS of books, all in random orders, so this book was obviously meant to be mine!
As well as my charity shop finds, I had a look in the independent yarn shop, and feeding my sock addiction, picked up this very snazzy yarn!
When I went to pay the lady asked if I would like a free sock pattern. Well, who am I to turn that down?! I particularly like the cable socks with the kilt - very cute indeed!
