Thank you n

Last week Crafty Threads 'n' Yarns forum n of The Yarn Yard offered two balls of Rowan Linen Print free to a good home in exchange for a charitable donation. I asked if I could have it as the colours (Crush:pink & purple) are perfect for DD's best friend & I'd like to make her something for her hair.

n then asked if I could also rehome some purple sock yarn! So a donation was made to a local Cerebral palsy charity in the supermarket that day & a few days later a parcel arrived:

Some of the colours are a bit speckled but they'll look great with the right stitch pattern & the yarn is so SOFT!
