Special Wool

Mum took a special trip to Bristol yesterday so we can go wool shopping. March can be a pretty cold month so she is knitting me a shrug to go with my dress.

We started off in Get Knitted in Brislington. It was MASSIVE in there but it seemed to be a lot of space but not a lot of stock. We found one some wool which was really nice but they only had 2 balls on the shelf, and none out back. Shame really.

We then drove miles to Cribbs to go to John Lewis. I love that store so much, I could spend a fortune in there (hence why vouchers are on my gift list!). The top floor is dedicated to craft; fabric, sewing and knitting mainly. They have a wall stuffed with loads of wool and also a bargain bucket which I struggled to keep mum out of!

In the end we still brought the same wool we saw in the first shop as it was so lovely! The pattern was for a rowan cotton but that didn't do anything for me when I saw it. I wanted something much softer and cosier! The colour wasn't quite right either. But this is perfect!!! I'm soo excited!

On the note of wedding outfits mind, I guess I should update on the dress fitting.... I had an off day on the diet last week which put me up a few pounds. I managed to scrape it back to the magic 9st exactly. But it wasn't enough..... URRRGGGHHHH!!!!!

 It sits lovely on my hips with a little to spare even... but the back still won't do up by about an inch and a half! I am so gutted and starting to wonder if it's really going to happen! I wan't to be able to breathe in it too!! I didn't plan on loosing much more but have decided to try 8st 10lb as I am sooo close! Before, the zip would only go half way up so I have come a long way already. If it's STILL not enough then it'll be tough luck and down the altering shop it'll go.

Unhappy smiley face.
