Blood everywhere...

These are the blood drops I made and sent off for the NHS knitted blood drops appeal. I managed eleven with the oddments of red wool I had and very satisfyingly mindless knitting it was too. Sometimes you just need a dose of mindlessness, y'know? Forgot to wait for the labels I was meant to attach, but they didn't seem to mind too much. Wonder what's going to happen to all these blood drops...seems to be shrouded in mystery.

And we have up to thirty little heart bags, made by the Thursday knit group, to send off to Ruth and Belinda's Heartsease project, supporting disadvantaged children and young people. If you fancy using up some scrap yarn to make simple little heart-shaped bags, the appeal runs till St Valentine's Day, so you've plenty of time.

It's amazing we can find these really, never mind summon the energy to actually send them anywhere...half the shop's still in boxes, the electricity meter still needs registering and I realised latish on that when the first few customers arrived we still had masking tape around the architraving. Anyway, we're in the new premises - The Old Bank, Silver Street, HX1 1HS, if you're looking for us. It'd be lovely to welcome you to our new location.
