have yourself a Merry Little……….

Well the shop is open until 12:30 today but  I do hope you all have too much else to do. This week has been my finishing things week and in no order I managed:

 

Cowls ’cause I found them very quick on circular needles .. its been quite in the shop this week so I managed to finish the distraction; two honeycomb cowls for next year’s kits and a random red ball with an edge!!

We’ve had a big tidy in the stock room and I’m planning one for the shop over the holidays if I can. The New Year should be good with a knit-in at the University to make a rugby team anyone?… and some one day events in the shop…… That might be one-day or just day long I haven’t decided…..

My holiday knitting is packed ready to take home but I doubt I’ll get too it more the time for family and watching cartoons with small people.

Peace and happiness to all. Knitty New Year see you on the 5th of January 2017

Oh yarn sharks!!!

I was on track with my Christmas knitting, my cards almost written and I’d even done some baking. Then we has a visit from a ‘yarn shark’. Oh don’t get me wrong he’s a very nice man…. a very very nice man, but well look what he made me do…….

Bringing lovely new yarn in ‘to try’ the pink sample is a silk and something to die for…….and Pink more pink than you can imagine (not so much pink in the shop strangely… must rectify that).

and all those colours ……dscf5862

As if I don’t have enough wool? Stashes of it and well…..I can’t have enough of that shade of green/yellow/mustard/Chartreuse (oh yes I do have 6 different skeins of that green at home already). Actually I like charteuse.

 

And that was Thursday. On Friday there was another one here; wafting wool and saying how nice it was with lots of lovely patterns and spun in the UK and before I knew it …………..dscf5861

Must be the season or something, my resistance is low but all the more for you to choose from come into the shop…….

feel the wool………………….

see what it will make …………………

 

How does that hypnosis work? Do yarn sharks have training courses ? No don’t suppose they do

It probably takes one to know one!!!

 

Christmas Decorations

The trees are getting lively. The robins were found hiding out in last year’s Christmas stocking in the stock room. Where else do robins hibernate? The mini stockings were still attached to the spiky artificial trees from the year before.

So I have adapted the crown pattern to make a bunting. Where are the stars?

Suddenly there feels like no time left …… Oh Christmas Trees….
