WOYWW this week?

This is my desk for this week, not much different from any other week apart from what I am working on at the moment, which is a book which is going to have pockets for tags with quotes on (I think if I don't change my mind).

Also for the last week I have done quite a lot of knitting!

When I went to our local carboot a couple of weeks ago I found some wool the lovely lady almost pleaded with me to buy it, 'You can have the whole lot of £1' she said. There was 2 carrier bags crammed full, well I didn't really want all that but I thought 'Oh what the heck' and payed her a quid. This was on the Sunday by Thursday I had finished the above throw and made 3 cushions! I think I have caught the knitting bug!

I still have loads more wool and I am just finishing another cushion for the swing chair in the garden.

So whats on your desk this week and what else have you been up to?

That looks like some serious knitting there! Don't you just love car boot sales; I think they are amazing places to go, problem is finding time to finish and alter what I pick up! Thanks for sharing.

Wow! What a lot of knitting you've done! That's going to be an amazing treasure for just £1!

Wow, you got a bargain with the wool and I'm astonished at the rate at which you knit! Takes me weeks just to do a little dishcloth, lol!

What a bright cheerful throw. I had not thought of using my left over wool for that sort of thing. Good idea.

I admire anyone who has the patience and focus to stay on task and finish things so quickly. I am afraid I lack both. I have a low thresh of boredom I guess. #101

What a lovely throw you have knitted. I should get out the knitting and start on the grandvhildren's jerseys before they freeze to death this winter.
Happy belated WOYWW

Wow, that's a lot of knitting! Nice work on your desk - I've had a look at the piece your working on in a later post, and the colours are fab! Also love the doors page - the last CJ I worked on had a pair of doors to use and I loved them!
