Yarny things and winners!

...this week ...
I've been knitting more little sock yarn bear jackets
(I love that I'm never quite sure how they will turn out...
each one unique using the self patterning yarns and they are a really quick knit) 
and pretty crochet squares for what will hopefully 
be my pastel coloured granny square blanket 
using Paintbox Cotton DK yarn
(I try to crochet at least one square at the start of each day!)

here are the winning tickets for the
Tearoom Christmas Bear Making Kits
(* if you think it could be you just click on the name to confirm *)

Congratulations to the winners!!
I'll be in touch later or if you could contact me with the address to which
you would like to receive your parcel and copy of the Tearoom Bears PDF knitting pattern  x

(look out for your snowflake parcel in the post ;-)  )

A huge thank you to everyone who entered
It would be lovely to have more kit Giveaways 
every now and again if everyone enjoys them 
(and it's good to be able to have quite a few winners too x)

Back soon

Happy December

Yarn winding week...

(through the looking glass) 

I've been busy this week mostly winding yarn...lots of yarn!...
1... for my current knitting project...
2... for the Christmas Making giveaway (starting next week)...
3... for Tearoom Doll kits... 
(my yarn swift and winder have definitely got to be the
the most used things in my workroom these days ;-) )

(* and for anyone who has inquired about doll kits they will be available here on the blog 
just as soon as I've put them all together ... hopefully within the next week x)

I've also been brightening up (and tidying up!) my workroom 
and have finally painted the little drawers pictured up there too...
they've been sitting on my shelves waiting to be smartened up for 
far too long and are now a pretty pale cobalt blue shade ...
(and at last my embroidery threads will be organised!)

and so...

I'll be back next week with news of the 
Christmas Making Giveaway
...along with other things...
