Frozen North and woolly socks
Hello, Weather report
Well the big freeze arrived yesterday, we have not had so much snow for years.
Phil and I walked to the post office yesterday to send a parcel only to get another order later in the afternoon.
The roads had cleared a bit so we got the car out for the second one. I was really pleased that I managed to walk so far in the snow.
Phil, Louise and I went to the trade show at the NEC, in Birmingham, we wanted to see where we could buy yet more yarns for the online shop.
Some plain sock yarn and some with a bit of bling.
Louise has been very busy changing the website and I have been adding all the crochet patterns to Wool to your door so that they can now be downloaded straight from there.
That is why I am late with the blog, lots of actual work this week paying bills and adding stock and bringing things up to date.
Phil and I also had a run out last week to see the snowdrops at Thorpe Perrow, it was a lovely bright day and there were plenty of snowdrops out.
I am still working on some bedtime clothes for Florence Elizabeth, Nightdress and mules are done just going to add a cuddly and maybe a hot water bottle!!!
I have also been sewing together the knitted squares that I finished ages ago so that blanket will be finished soon I hope.
Louise has been knitting lots of socks, we are still waiting for her to finish a pair, mine is still only half a sock so she has progressed much more than I have, it is fun though, you should give it a go sometime.
Right it is almost lunchtime, some lunch now and more sewing up this afternoon. I am determined to get this one all finished this week.
Keep safe and warm
Ali and Louise xxx
