WOYWW...

Happy Wednesday everyone.  

Firstly today I have to say Happy Anniversary to Twiglet and her hubby.  They have been married 37 years today. Hoping you both have a really special day.

As ever, following our Funday Monday comes a need to catch up on Tuesday at sewing by Annie's and this week has been no different.  My rail was full before Twiglet arrived this week and not a lot of work was done during the rest of the day.  We had a visit from M and spent the day chatting, giggling and enjoying our day together. [ just what the Dr ordered  :-)  ]




This was my 'to do' rail yesterday morning [2 of my customers brought 10 items between them!] but thankfully I cleared most of that yesterday.  I am now up to 1070 customers so, as you can imagine, business is booming.




 This is the latest little knittie I have now finished.  I think the little smiley face buttons just make this little cardi [click on pic to enlarge if you want a closer look]....


 .....and I am now knitting with the gorgeous wool Jo from Jozarty brought me back from Germany.  I love how the colours are appearing as I knit.  This one started off with casting on 193 stitches and will take a while to complete  but I am really enjoying using this wool so thank you Jo.  :-)


Well, thats about it from me today.  I will do my best to get round as many of you as possible but if I fail to get to you then thank you for visiting me and for your lovely comments.  Hoping you have a really great week.

I hope you will all pop over to Julia's now and join in the WOYWW fun.

I love your wool. I crochet at night when I'm sitting in bed and make mostly large blankets for sitting in front of the fire or watching TV in the cold months.
