Magpie Monday - Its all yellow

I'm really happy with my Magpie finds this week and Im pleased to back in the swing of things again. First thing I bought from my local charity shop this week was some lovely yellow wool. All three balls for £1.50. I love the colour and have started making some leg warmers with it which I hope to match with my lemon PJ's. 


Then I spotted an outdoor light that looks as though it has never been used ...A real bargain at £1.50. Papa put it straight up in our back garden. It gives off a nice yellow glow as it turns dark. Perfect for the evening after a summer BBQ.

So have you spotted any bargains this week?

Linking up to Lizzies Magpie Monday.

  1. Legwarmers rock! They are the first proper thing I've knitted myself - bit rubbish but I like them!

    I agree with Lakota - legwarmers rock! I knitted some for DD, practically the only thing I can manage besides scarves!

  7. That yellow wool is lovely. I think I'm really drawn to that colour at this time of year because it feels like instant sunshine!

  14. Lovely soft yellow wool! There was a girl the year above me at University who wore a custard yellow jumper - I was really envious of it, even though I can't wear yellow as I'm too pale and it makes me look washed out, but love the colour anyway!
