I could say in answer to what's on my work desk for this week...pretty much the same as last week.....but with a few changes.  :-)

I have a to do rail full of shirts to take in for my 1285th customer!  The numbers keep climbing and I have a feeling if we ever get to this new bungalow they may well climb further as it is opposite a school  so lots of potential new customers :-) ....but I've still no more news to share on the house moving date.

The same pile of knitted squares as last but, wow, look how it's grown...it's now twice Mitzy monkey's height!
There is definitely girl colours and boy colours too so they may well be made into two blankets  :-)

The same little knitted hoodie but I have now completed a back, two cable knit fronts and am now knitting both sleeves....yes I like to knit them both together  :-)

So there you go...a very similar desk but progress has been made.  I had the twins Monday, Tuesday and they are here again to play today so I will try to catch up on you if and when they have naps later.  Have a great week.

Of course your customers are in the 1000's you are known world wide! Your knitting is gorgeous love that mint green colour. Mitzy looks quite pleased with herself. Have a lovely week enjoying your little ones.

I really hope you get a date soon, this last lap is so frustrating for you! The squares look great, and will make lovely blankets.

Hi Annie I knit both sleeves together as I'm not very good at following the pattern it's the only way I get them
The same size. Do you have time for MORE customers? Lol

Anne said...

Hello Annie - must admit every week I am excited wondering if you will say you have a date to move. It is hard waiting isn't it. I've made my first square to your pattern ( looks a bit rectangular but I think will be ok if I block it) Happy WOYWW Anne x #63

Karen said...

Wow someone has been busy with the wool and sewing! Well done. Looking forward to seeing the crochet made up. Happy WOYWW! Karen x

I so hope you have a date soon. It's horrible being in limbo like that. What a lovely stack of knitted squares.

Love the hoodie but then cable has always been a favourite knitting stitch. I remember making a lovely cotton cardi years ago, all different cable stitches in squares. Took an age but it's always worthwhile.
Thanks for visiting already, glad my 'emergency' craft purchases made you giggle.

1285 customers! Wow Annie, you go girl! How marvellous. And how many alterations is that! Blimey, congratulations! I love the knitting of both sleeves at once...multi tasking and a cast iron guarantee that they'll be the same length!

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Thanks for stopping by, it's 29 here and we went out !! So bright with sunshine, almost like spring. I am hoping you have a room for all your sewing needs when you move !! Love all the yarn work, sentimental I guess, my grandma always had a project to work on. And now our yarns are so improved ! and pricy
Enjoy the week

Any progress for me is good. I can just see the sweet baby in that set you are making. Ped R-13

Thanks for stopping by earlier.

WOW! Well over a thousand and on your way to two! Love the squares and I am fascinated with how fast you knit. Love the green sweater and thats an awesome idea to knit both sleeves at the same time! Have a great week. Vickie aka Okienurse #111

glitterandglue said...

Well done you, Annie. All those customers! The squares pile is growing well - and seeing you knitting that little cardigan reminded me that I, too, always used to knit both sleeves at the same time. A bit harder now that all my knitting is for adult sizes - but a good reminder.
Have a great week. Trust you hear soon re the house move - it is just so difficult to keep coping with everything packed up!! been there, done that, and got several frustrating tee shirts!

Carmen said...

What a perfectly pitched place you will be opposite a school! Hope you have news of your move soon :)

You look so busy! love that you knit both the sleeves together :D

Girl colors, boy colors, bright colors, pastels. What a bunch of squares you have prepared.

1285 customers. How awesome. Very impressive. Wish you had better news on the home front, though.

Thanks for visiting me already and happy slightly belated WOYWW from #1.

Neet said...

How many customers? Wow, that's a lot of sewing you have done.
Great knitting on display and the crochet squares look awfully pretty.
Hoping to hear news about the move soon.
Hugs & Thanks for visiting me earlier, sorry I am so late - Neet 50

Hi Annie,
Thanks for your visit. :-)
The climbing numbers are great for biz but it defies me as to how you manage kiddiwinks for two days AND keep the show on the road, knitting and all. Well done.

It must be so frustrating to still be hanging on with the move. I think I would have given up on the whole things by now. I like knitting sleeves together as well. It does make sure you get them the same length, at least. Hope you get some good news about your move this week. xx Maggie #2
