Look what I scored in a charity shop near work, when I popped out to go to Waitrose for a quick grocery shop:
a lovely, handmade aran sweater in DH's size. It cost all of £4.99. (That's the price-tag you can see). Someone went to a lot of trouble to make this. I think it's in DK weight yarn, so it must have taken months. Just take a close look at this seam:
No idea why it ended up in a charity shop, but I'm glad I found a home for it.
