Baby Cardi

Many have asked about the baby cardi's
Here are one or two....or three

they have all been knitted by Marga, they are lovely arn't they?
You can knit them too,
We have the yarn and the patterns or you can use a pattern of your own- I suggest the most simple plain pattern you can find.
As for the yarn, it is a 4ply self patterning sock yarn and all you need for baby up to about 6month old is 100g ball
So if you want 1 ball plus pattern sent out to you it would cost £9.00 inc P&P

Felting on the 20th Feb

Just a note about the felting course on the 20thFeb.
This will start at 10am till 4-4.30ish with tea,coffee and a light lunch.
Laura has asked those who are coming to bring a towel, she will get back to me if we need to bring anything else.
First of all we will be flat felting, just to get to know our fibres and how they work. She mentioned that this is important as sometimes we go on an hour long course and make something but when we get home it never seems to work out the same.
We will then work with 'resist' and take home a finished project.

I for one am really looking forward to the course. See you then if not before ;0)

and more amazing knits

Look at these amazing socks - sorry I meant to say this sock as number 2 is being put on the back burner, - knitted by someone who has never knitted a pair of sock in her whole life.
She was advised by a lady to knit a 2 needly sock and this is IT.
I personaly prefer to knit on the round, I think it is easier in the longrun.

and yet another view of the SAME SOCK

Now for some serious...knitting..... What do you think of these Tea Cozies?

This is my favourite

St Abbs WoolFestival /08-photos

Nov 8th seems soooo long ago, but some kind generous soul gave me some photos of it today,

Here are some photos
ooooooooooops, I didn't realize I had time to stop but someone cought me

this was everyone setting up, later on it was sooo busy , it would have been so hard to take a photo.

it was nice to see young ones taking an interest in knitting--By the comment young- now that i have turned 50 ---(50 - only old people are 50) I still feel a young one.
I have other photos of felting and the Harrogate knitting and Stitching Show, but in view of the time I am going to go home(i am not on the net at home)only in the shop. I will get to that another time. x
