Happy woolly things....









Hello everyone...
First, I have to say a huge thank you for the feedback on the latest knitting pattern
It's been really lovely to receive your kind messages, photos of little jackets made in so many different yarns and colours 
and also to read that everyone seems to have found the pattern easy to follow and fun to do.
As you can see from the pics above and below, my love of playing with sock yarn continues and I'm planning to 
make some frilly edged bear/doll dresses, frock coats and cardigans in lots of different yarns 
(hopefully becoming a pattern in the future which will be perfect for more sock yarn busting ;-) )
....meaning more clothes rails will be needed very soon x.... 
...and the 2 yarns on the left of the photo just above are for the beginnings of a shawl
...plus one extra skein in a mixed minty shade which I've since purchased...
(and all the left overs will be well used for mini clothes...of course! )  





...hope you're enjoying your Sunday wherever you may be...

it's thankfully cool and damp here after our mini heatwave
(although I did manage to keep knitting through the heat...hurrah!)

...wishing you a happy...creative...new week...

...back soon...
 ♥ 
P.S...I may be asked...
my new favourite sheep mug was purchased at Hogben Pottery
