A Teaser


Just a little teaser for you all for the wool to come! I did up the last of my 4ply yesterday too (have to order more now) in a few new shades I plan in making part of my regular (preorder available) colourway.

Have to tidy my sale site up a bit too soonish. What do you all think?

And don't forget the Comp!! We are currently at 32!! Getting closer to 50! I so want to have another prize lucky dipped!! EVERYONE will be included in the lucky dip one..so ANYONE has a chance to win! Click HERE to guess if you haven't already!

I forgot to say that Friday I made jam..YES JAM!! Apricot jam to be exact. I had picked some fruit from the tree Wednesday so Friday morning I picked the rest needed (and were ripe enough) and with 2kg of fruit I made jam. LOVELY. Nothing like the smell of fresh jam in a house!

Someone has listed some sockwool from HELL on ebay!! Go look!! For those of you who don't know the story behind the SWFH...My boss gave me a ball of it and asked me to make some toddler socks from it. So me being the perfectionist I am had to make THREE (all I could get from the wool) matching toddler pairs...I sent them back and she tells me "they dont have to match" and gives me ANOTHER ball and asks for some BABY socks this time...(I so never wanted to see the wool again)...soooo Me being the perfectionist again (and really..who wants to pay an arm and a leg for NON-matching baby socks?) I churn out five perfectly matching pairs..I hope never to see the wool again I can tell you! But I know I will...Sigh.

40rows left and I have finished BOTH the sleeves of one of the birthday pressies..Then just the collar and it will be done. Started my fathers socks too. I have worked out that if I take a week per last three things (2pair socks and 1 jumper) I can get them all done in time! Wish me luck!

Today has been gorgeous with the weather too! I didn't feel bad at all about making savoury toast for lunch..and now have a veggie lasagna for dinner sitting in the oven to be turned on at 5:30! I am a WEIRD soul that likes to cook MORE in hot weather...don't ask me why.

    Wow, nice yarn! I hope that you get those jumpers completed in time! Too bad about the wool from hell...you probably will see it again...simply because you do not like it. Did you get your package yet????

    Attention my fellow SNBer's!

    The cafe at Door of Hope dosen't open till Wednesday! So tomorrow will have to be a BYO lunch and drinks day. So pack your cut lunch and fill your thermos, and then perhaps pack it as well.

    In addition to this mail out, I will attempt a mass mail out to everyones accounts through my yahoo account, hopefully covering everyone. If anybody knows of anyone who won't be reached by either of these e-mails can you please pass the message on to them! I'd rather double or triple up than have someone come tomorrow unawares and unprepared.
    Cindy has a wonderful idea to help solve these minor hiccups in the future! Will discuss it all tomorrow! Cindy I will draw up some ideas tonight and hopefully then after tomorrows discussion we can issue it out at the next meeting.

    I've been cooking up a bit too. Raspberry tarts and broccoli pies.
    We had such a huge crop of broccoli in the garden...I'm soooo glad it's gone!
