One thought on “starting with the yarn store … becoming a jumper”

  1. HI Sandra,
    Lovely to see you Henry and Charlotte the other night. This is the link to kate’s blog. Two of them – “wool” and “stages in making a jumper” tell of textiles hear Galashiels so might be of interest. Guess who is trying to distract herself today??
