Gift tag

Some one came into the wool shop wanting a tiny pair of booties to give to her friend who had just become a grandma. I offered to knit her some, unsure what to charge her ( I am a crap business woman) I suggested that if she brought a ball of wool, I'll knit them and post them to her and then keep the remaining wool. Deal struck she chose a ball of rooster baby bamboo. Rosie sold wool, lady was happy and I had fun knitting them and I have plenty of wool left for now another idea!!!

What do you think?

I also spent the day yesterday helping my friends in West Bexington with their shearing (they are the people with that wonderful wool). I will be paid in balls of wool. I have discovered muscles that I had forgotten were in my body. But kind of made think that if I had a physical job how fit I would be. Food for thought. I have now lost 1 stone 2 lbs. well on my way to the two stone I want to loose before I am 40 in September. (then three stone after that, would be nice to get down to 12 stone again). If all goes well I will be spending the day with my Mum and both my sisters walking Lily in Devon at a place called Fingle Bridge, Jose will sadly be back in London but I am hoping I can go and spend the day with her just after my Birthday.

So all in all some lovely family time to look forward to. Some things lately have really made me realise how very lucky I am to have such a good relationship with all members of my family. I love and like each one so very much.
I may be skint but I am so rich in other ways and I appreciate that every day x

Tim is getting ready to take his hut to the Melplash Show and my friend Kim is putting together the art work for his signs and business cards. I wish I could draw half as good as her. This is just a rough sketch!!!

Finished hat

I followed the simple hat from Foxes Lane blog. She had made one for her husband. I think next time I would change to DPN's for the decrease.

Sorry I can't put on a link but I am writing this on my phone and don't know how to do it. http://foxslane.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/wool-wool-more-wool-pattern.html?m=1

Try that. If I want changing colours, serving customers in the shop it would have been done in a couple of hours.i had a lovely day with Nicki. We went by train to Totnes.

Have a good weekend.
