Make us happy and
You make us good.
-Robert Browning.
Hey morning gals! I’ve had a bit of a late start to the morning but I’ve been out selling cowls already!! Sold 2. How great is that? My holidays have drawn to an end........and I want them back. Lol Anyone else having trouble with blogger letting you change fonts? I can only change a few words, but the body of this blog doesn't change...even by typing it up in word first. Weird!

It’s really been one great big knit-a-thon around my parts these last few weeks. Filling knitting orders and selling goods at the markets have certainly kept Heather and I busy. I’m getting a little stress about my show entries because I don’t think I have been able to make as much as I usually would do.
My week was filled with.......A trip to the local craft shop. That was heaps of fun. 

 This free pattern from Ravelry is called Wurm, but I’m thinking I might call it an Ashlee cap! Love the cool colour. Click here for pattern.

 I adore the top of this cap, it looks so smart.

Knitted baby beanies for consignment......and they were super fun to knit. I’ve done one in plain and one in cable with each colour I used. Click here for the pattern
 Haven’t quite got to knitting the cable pair for these two.
 I’m flicking through this super book of Heather’s. The pages show you how the buildings look now, and it has a plastic page you can put over the top of it and show you how the building did look in its time. I have seen most of those buildings while touring through Italy. Truly amazing.

I’m off now to bother my oldest son as we are the only two at home right now, and secretly.......I think he likes it when I stir him up. After pressing my buttons with his comment about ‘there’s nothing to eat.....only ingredients’.......I think he needs some teasing.
Stay happy everyone.

Ciao, Anita.

Ah! there is nothing like
Staying at home for real comfort.

I’m enjoying my holidays so much, it’s amazing!! The weather is pretty chilly here, so that means the fire is raging, the hot drinks are flowing and I’m content to just roam around the house and enjoy doing the things I don’t get to do usually.

Heather and I took ourselves over to the little town of York yesterday, to the markets. We had our knitted and sewn goods for sale and we did really well. The people were lovely and friendly. I can tell you we did wonder why we were driving along in the freezing cold at that hour of the morning! Lol Turned into a lovely day....and we were well behaved.

I have been super lucky to visit my tribe of nieces and nephews. I even got to spend some time with my niece Lisa and visit a beautiful garden nursery. That was heaps of fun and beaut to spend time with her. When I was kissing all the little nephews and niece goodbye, I managed to get a “candle kiss” from little Jack! That joined us together for a split second. Lol.

Winter and knitting go hand in hand around here too, so there’s been lots of that going on. Come with me.........

Cute little baby beanies on the go.......

 Little bootees in gorgeous soft yarn....

2 black cowls coming up! These have already been sold.

 Ready for the market table...sweet little legs warmers.

Child’s fingerless mittens (already sold!) Glad I quickly took a photo. lol
 A sneak peak of one of my projects. I love this pattern but don’t know what it’s called. Very pretty.
 Another sneak peak. I’m being a bit cagey aren’t I? lol
 A friend of mine dropped off a big bag of mixed yarn with some lovely textures in it. I’m already knitting away with some of it. A pity I’m not much of a photographer because I haven’t been able to capture the lovely texture and colours. I am making a cowl out of this lot of yarn and can’t wait to get stuck into the next lot.

I’m off to see what everyone is doing around the house. I’ll be doing all the things that make me happy today, that would include stirring up the hubby. I think he secretly likes that. I know I do. Lol
You groovy cats enjoy your lovely Sunday.

Cheers, Anita.
