I hope that I have written this down right.
I have some spare wool for my never ending knitted blanket so I will do a square of this stitch.
I have recycled some leftovers that Mum had fm other projects so it is looking a bit like Doctor Who's alternative scarf. Pity David Tennant is not going to play that part anymore after next year, isn't it? Sorry getting side tracked. As I said the other day my knitting was about 1 metre long but it is now longer than that.
I missed my 10,000 hit which was a pity as I was going to have a landmark giveaway. So I have decided to leave it and either link it to my birthday in December or nearer New Year instead when we are all experiencing post-festive blues. I will get back to you on this later.
Having the chance to visit different craft shops is always fun and once I have taken some pictures tomorrow I will be able to show you my new items that I found when I was away. They all have a use, the Quilties swap, Christmas swap, the blue and quilt I am making, a bag for the works do in December and some items for my Etsy shop. Now I was thinking about my website and Etsy shop, due to the economic climate it seems daft to even have these online shops. I am hoping that buying something online will save petrol, parking money, stress of walking round and having the chance to think about it before clicking yes to anything. I have made more use of mail order, online shops etc this year for many of the above reasons and so far I have not been disappointed at all. I am open to custom orders and I can be emailed etc for this. My Etsy shop has a few things that I have but listing it is not one of my favourite jobs. Does anyone else feel like this? I will continue though and see what happens over the next few weeks.
This is a lovely colour berry, could not see a name for this but Sophie was quite taken with it as well.
Walking through these silver birches was very surreal and I am going to use this for my Christmas cards this year. A lovely walk and Sophie was really impressed with this group of trees.
Of course, I simply had to find some fresh holly as well.
More pictures tomorrow.
PS: Saw this on Purple and Paisley and it made me laugh!!
