Hi! This board is for posting all of your crafty finds from charity shops - some of the most amazing things I've got for crafting have been from these places - I'll now share with you my latest find...
Well, I recently finished my exams, but whilst I was revising for them I decided that I wanted need a break and so I cleared out my room and donated a huge bag of stuff. I took my wallet and boy was I glad I did  Grin
I found two lever arch files bursting with knitting patterns.... it's one of those things where you buy a magazine weekly/fortnightly and build up the collection. Firstly they tend to be very expensive, secondly the person who'd donated these had collected practically two series full Shocked
Here's the files :-


Just showing how many patterns are in there:-
(remember to times this by two!)
Examples of some of the patterns:-
I would love to do this in navy and white....

it looks so soft!
finally....
  an evening knitted top...
Sorry about the flash on these pics...
These are just a few of the patterns, the files also include tips on different stitches/ buttons etc..
all in all i think that was a very satisfactory find! and the best part? the files (plus a set of dpns) came to a grand total of........2!!!!

I found five binders full of Golden Hands (best partwork EVER) , I think it is almost complete for 10 last year. My Mum used to have a Golden Hands book in the 70s when I was a small girl and I'd spend hours just looking through it. I'm pretty much the same with my binders now!
