bad mail, bags and a name change

I have had several parcels returned to me in a burnt mess, they include some etsy orders and the club yarns, apparently they were in a van crash and smouldered. The new ones are almost ready for sending out, then I can claim my money back from them, thanks goodness for proof of postage.

This is the first pattern I have ever designed. It takes 2 hanks of BFL DK and only took me a day to knit felted in the washing machine it is a large and very strong bag, I will be writing it up as soon as I get chance, the I cord is fab and only took me 15 minutes to finger knit, again instructions will follow asap.

In case you have not noticed I have also got a name change the posts are now signed Miss Mandy of Fliwick, this is due to the Hogwarts sock swap 2 that I am in, normality will return once the swap is over.

I was only thinking this morning about the July club yarn, I think mine will probably be coming on holiday with me ;) Hope nobody was hurt in the crash and that you manage to sort out the extra work it has obviously caused you. Getting it yarn dry must be the biggest problem with the grotty weather we're having. Like the bag pattern too, a girl never has enough bags!

I wondered who you were lol! I hope your next consignment of yarn is delivered unscathed.

I LOVE bags :)
