Sneaky Peak

Ok I have some piccies of things I am going to sell on my shop. Just gotta organise getting it all ready then I can list them. The knitwear I have to work out the sizing only really.

So here is a few things.

My alpaca. This might be the only lot I actually dye up. I plan on putting the rest on as blank undyed skeins that people can buy and I will dye up one of my standard colour ranges (or they can pick colours of their own).

This is the hooded raglan that I was working on. Finished now And I love it. So soft and pretty. Matched the sleeve stripes up as best as I could considering none of the balls fully matched up. Included close up of pretty colours.

My long time regular readers will remember when I use to knit for a high class knitwear shop down south from me. And the EVIL socks from hell I knitted for her. Well..I couldnt deny how well those things sold. So..I gave in and bought some of that wool last year, and on and off churned out baby socks to list and sell (lets hope I have the same luck she did selling them). There is four pair. All matching stripes..No two pair match another pair of socks though from same ball. So showing one pair only.

Okies that will do for now. You will see the rest on shop when I get them up on there. Still havent found recharger cord for batteries. BUT have used other battteries which dont have as long digi life. Its getting me through for now.

Saturday I am going to see the Crusty Deamons!!!! EXCELLENT!!! Will be going with a friend and looking forward to it! Most excited!! Before that I got a kids 7th birthday party to take the girls to...Full on loud Saturday for me.

Okies all..Have a great weekend! Happy knitting

Oooh its been a month since I last posted! Bad me.

I have been knitting though not much. I decided to spread myself over 3 projects.
  1. size 1 cable and rib jumper
  2. 6-12mths hooded raglan baby jumper
  3. childs socks I am designing

Well the raglan is up to me knitting the hood and then finishing up the sewing (hoping to get that done soon).

The cable and rib has the front and back finished so just the sleeves, sewing and collar to go.

The socks are up to turning the heel and working out how I want the foot part to look. Then knitting the second sock. Sending out to my test knitters and then I will be able to list it on etsy to sell.

Both jumpers will be for etsy. I am really having to get my butt moving on that thing. Would have listed some wool I have dyed ready to sell and some other knitwear I have ready to sell except when I went to take pics of them yesterday the digi batteries died. And we cant find the cord to the charger to recharge the batteries!! Oh the trauma.

Went into spotlight last week. They had some wool reduced to $1 a ball..Sooooo $50 later out i came with a HUGE bag of wool. All divided up into their lots and put away waiting for me to cast something on after I have finished up a few things I have no needles now. All is pure wool except some Cleckheaton natural in green fleck which is a blend of wool acrylic. I LOVE getting pure wool so cheap..

The girls are both back at school which I am soooo happy about. Both are full time this year. So I get my days to myself. Going to enjoy doing nothing for maybe another week then start hitting all their toys and things that they dont play with but wont let me toss out and get rid of a HEAP while they arent home to stop me.

Because the digi is out of use I have no pics of knitting to show you. But I have a pic of my girls taken the other week while we were visiting my parents I can show you. So enjoy.

above is Harley (8yo)

above is Rachelle (5yo)

Okies catch you all later. Enjoy your week and weekend! Hope to get some pics up soon of knitting. Will have to hunt for the charge cord!

Happy knitting
