I also ordered a ball of Yo Yo wool to knit myself a cardigan/jacket from the Knitting in No Time book that Kate bought me for Christmas. I nearly slumped over the counter when the assistant told me it was £20 a ball but regained my composure when we read the pattern and found that the balls of wool are in fact very large and I only need one.
My mother today exclaimed "What will you do if you run out of wool and it isn't quite finished?'
This wont be a problem I reassured her. The garment is knitted in one piece starting with the left sleeve. If I run out,the right sleeve will just be a little shorter.
As well as these two projects for January I've also got one sock to finish so, I will be kept busy.
On that note I must add that I need to be kept busy. Sorry but here's my first rant of 2011.
My itunes account has been hacked and five unauthorised payments of £30 have been taken from my credit card. Contacting itunes isn't the easiest in the world, only by email, with replies taking up to 48hrs. Now, being the calm person that I am, I can except this up to a point.
But, I notified them on Wednesday, I received a reply late on Thursday asking for more information. I replied straight away and then on Saturday evening I got a two line response.
There are no unauthorised charges on your account.
Have a nice day.
I'm still waiting to receive a reply to my reply about that!
Thankfully my credit card company are on the case, but it's all hassle that I could do without.
For those of you that haven't turned off yet, thank you for listening, for those that have, I don't blame you!
