was wondering...would you consider a swap for some of these? I can't knit to save myself! Or I could buy some off you?
PS the little veg bags are really nice but I'm sorted on that front!

Don't know what I could swap...but I like the idea. Maybe email me (address is on my blog) and we can sort something out!
