This is one of the images I've been mucking about with while creating products to sell at Woolfest. I must catch up with Nickerjac to see what her plans are about going up there. From the sounds of it she has been as busy if not busier than Crazy Aunt Purl with lots of going back and forth.
Today I have been mainly eating battenburg cake in honour of Yarnstorm. In the post I've linked to you not only get her recipe for the cake but also get to see the wicked tea cosy she has knitted that matches it so perfectly. That woman is such a dude. If you have time look at the tulip post from a few days earlier - they are my favourite flower and she is such a good photographer it's a real pleasure to read.
I have also been slogging away through stakeholders onto marketing. I have almost finished session 2 so I *think* I am up to date according to the study calendar. Which is good as Pooch and I are off to the comedy club tonight for someone's birthday. And before then I want to line the bag Pooch gave me the kit for and that I made on the plane out to the US. It is a crochet mesh like a string bag in rowan linen print and is actually very nice although I never would have bought the kit for myself. I have chosen tonight for its debut. Hopefully I will actually locate the camera soon and be able to take a pic of that and the socks.
My secret pal has been in touch and sounds very lovely! She has asked me lots of extra questions including foot measurements so I'm hoping my heavy hints might pay off and I might get some hand knit socks. I know I've knitted myself tonnes but I have this idea that socks from someone else will be even more comfy than the ones I've done.
