What will today bring ?

Every day bring us a new challange in one way or another even if we dont relize it each day i try to be posative, helpfull and not moan as much as the prevoius day but working with the public can put a lot of strain on this theory so try to do to others what you can expect of them and it might just all work out nicely .if not just count to 10...........or in my case a 110 !!!

Cotton Crazy

After getting over the delight of my bargain knitting basket i went down to the wool stall .
I fancy knitting a Cotton cardie for thr summer (well that's if we get one ha ).
Ive never knitted in cotton before so here my first attempt.
I'm using Sirdar cotton calico a 50/50 mix as it my first time the lady recommended it just doing a short sleeve summer cardie cant wait to cast on.......yet another project ..i blame those knit wits .................you know who you are its all your fault you've got me hooked !!!!

Bargin Basket

Today was my day off and as i was doing my usual walk round Ball hill market and a bacon batch at the rose bud cafe(its a tradition I've got myself into )Popped into the charity shop theve got 4 in ball hill i love having a good old rummage i asked the lady behind the desk if she had any old knitting patterns and to my delight she had loads .......ooh i got all excited especially wen she said they were only 20p each.
As i handed over the money with big smile she said to me did you not spot the knitting basket over there in the corner no i looked over and to my eager delight there was the largest framed knitting basket and it was only £3.00 Bargain i snapped her hand off.
My hubby bought me one for Christmas last year and its only half the size yet it cost him over £25.00 from hobby craft.
Well if you could see my face Looked like the cat who got the cream ( the whole bloody dairy farm. ........lol)
Dont you just love charity shops ...........I'm addicted

tissue tissue .........looking posh

Well finished my tissue box cover for my sister and her new decorated front room and if i say so myself it looks fab sitting there on her table even she had to say how lovely it looked and that was hard for her as she is not a knitting fan like us ...............(i know its shame she is still om the dark side ) lol
After sewing on over 180 small beads my thumb and finger dropped off.but the overall result looks great i decided to line it as well because of the lace pattern the writing on the box showed through the holes and all you could see was asda tissues and that was not a good look .......lol

Since finishing i have had quite a few request so might set up a cosy shop ..um maybe not!
