Hello everyone :wave: I live in Lancashire but I'm hoping to move to Wales in the next year or three. Presently I'm selfsufficientish in growing some fruit and veg and also dyeing and spinning fleece for my serious knitting/crochet habit. I'm also a big recycler/resuer and belong to my local hackspace.

You have been warned before about yarn bombing your pets, stop it.

Sorry, Welcome

Thanks for the welcome. Althought I said Lancashire, some would say it's Greater Manchester but as I'm back in the house where I was born and on my birth certificate it clearly says Lancashire, so I am and always will be a Lancashire lass :)

I'd just like to point out that it wasn't this Tony that spat at you Doofa, especially as you live just up the road and know where I live. :violent1: :lol:
