Working hard...

Just a quick note to apologise for the lack of postings. I have had so many things that I wanted to show you but we are in the process of setting up an on line shop which is consuming all of my computer time.
I thought you might like to see the exciting new adriafil wools which have just arrived, yes we hope to have them available on line soon.
I really want to be sitting in the sun with my crochet, not inside on the computer. That is my incentive to get on with the job before the weather turns.
Hope you are all sitting in the sun with hooks or needles.

As all of you know, every knitter has a long list of 'projects for the future' stacking up either mentally, on ravelry or as a physical pile of books and patterns. Or as in my case in all 3 areas. High in my list of 'must knit' are several of the adorable dogs in this book:
I love the Westie on the front cover and the red setter, afghan hound and bulldog are delightful. However, this weekend we were visited by a very special wee dog who attends a knitting group and patiently keeps her owner company. An adorable miniature dachshund called Bronte. She is booked onto a course with Alison Crowther-Smith, who is a dachshund lover herself.
She was well admired while visiting a we hope to welcome her on one of our courses soon.
I have recently finished Sandra Polley's Milly, for my son. He loves it, maybe she needs a few friends!
