Oohh - well, there's a blow - lovely shade of chocolate but no ball band - bummer



Just had a thought!



Would it be ok next time you fancy a bit of chocolate (if you're like me, that could be in the next five minutes) to go and get a few different bars (strictly in the interests of knitting karma, of course) unwrap them and check them against the yarn?



This, though, might pose a bit of a problem - I mean, what would you do with all that uneaten choc!??



Nah - maybe that's not such a good idea after all!





- oo, I know - why not send me a small sample of the yarn and then I could go out and get a few bars (again, strictly in the interests of knitting karma) and test them for colour!



I've just had another look at that very fine hat and indeedy, it does put me in mind of a Mars Bar, but I could be wrong - Galaxy could fit the bill but just to be on the safe side, I'd have to have a squint at Cadbury's Dairy Milk as well. We don't have a problem with uneaten choc around here - longest shelf-life is two minutes and ticking.



Some twerp I share the house with has just pointed out that I could get the sample of yarn from you and go to a wool shop and match it up!



Have you ever heard the like of it? Matching up chocolate wool without the the chocolate! - doesn't bear thinking about. Obviously a non-knitter!



Oh - well, sacrifices have to be made - so I'll get practicing with the choc.



Start off with my favourite, which sort of matches my avatar as well!





Snap out of it !!!!
LOL You have one thing on the brain . Suck a mint instead lol . Hehehe
I will send a sample in the post

Shush!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've just checked, Cyndi - they don't have any - never have had any - and don't intend to get any!!!

It must have been a dream - The only supply of Terry's Choc Orange is the UK - and at a supermarket near me - nowhere else!

(I've blackmailing Julie for years with the threat of orange withdrawal!)

Hiya Rita, who said: "Snap out of it" - OK - will do.

Hmm - bit difficult, though - can't find Buttersnap for love nor money, so will have to make do with Dime Bars.

Wouldn'tcha know it? Can't find chocstix, either but don't despair, we're not the only ones

http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/mtype2/w...uttersnap_bar/

You're right, Nicky - come to think of it, that shade of brown does remind me of choccy/mint ice-cream

Oo - there's something else you said Rita - got one thing on my mind - or somesuch - can't remember what now!

Oo - yeah - that Dime Bar thing - anybody know where I can get cinder toffee coated in milk choc?

I think I'm definitely a coconut head - after Bounty, I love Raspbery Ruffles and the pink coconut and yellow coconut sweets in Allsorts
http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/raspberry-ruffles-p-70.html

It's amazing what you can do if you set your mind to it - just thinking of coconut now! and guess what? - it's the same colour as your wool! How's that for a coincidence?


Anybody else have any 'What happened to ....?' favourite sweets

Hiya Julie

Here is a disclaimer right away: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT OTHER PEOPLE DREAM OR HALLUCINATE ABOUT.

If Cyndi is deluded enough to think you can get Terry's Chocolate Orange in the US, then at the very least, she should go and lie down in a darkened room!

Tut, Julie - send the lass some orange juice and a Hershey Bar from me!!!

As if I'd do such a thing ........ as blackmail you ..... well, really ..............


Thank you so much for another lovely hat - that's a very pretty shade of blue and I love the splash of delicate pink.

I must get cracking myself and knit a bit more - try later tonight - keep breaking off from the typing - fingers still tingling.

All the Best

Ellie

Are you quite sure about that, Cyndi???


Have you checked your diet lately? - maybe you're short of chocolate - have you tried eating it with an orange? That way, it's very healthy - cos you get your Vit C as well!

All the Best

Ellie
