New kids cable knit wrist warmers

This project has been a long time in the planning, I have done a lot of research finding out kids hand sizes, and they do vary greatly so I hope that you will find a pair to suit your child. I have used the softest aran weight yarn with a 50% wool content, so they will be very soft, very warm and very practical.

Toddler Age 2 - 4 years 5 - 5 1/2 inches (12 1/2 - 14 cms) across the widest part of the hand not including the thumb. 4 1/2 inches (11 1/2 cms) long Child Age 5 - 8 years 6 inches (15 cms) across the widest part of the hand not including the thumb. 5 inches (12 1/2 cms) long big kids Age 9 - 12 years 6 1/2 inches (16 1/2 cms) across the widest part of the hand not including the thumb. 6 inches (15 cms) long

New Cable Knit Wrist Warmers Knitting Pattern

I finally got around to writing out my Cable knit wrist warmers pattern today, it took me over an hour to write it out, and then another hour to work out how to create a pdf!
I couldn't do it from works word processor, as every site I tried to use told me it didn't convert this type of document, I'm sure that's how I did it on my old pc! I had to use office word 2007 which is new to me and I didn't have a clue how to use it, I'm out of practice with word, I ended up copying and pasting the whole document from one to the other.
Anyway I managed to do it, but I don't know how I did it......!!!!!!!!!!!

So I've been thinking.......Blog Giveaway pt 1

I was just wondering... what will get me back to my blog? which has been long forgotten since I moved house..... So I've been thinking of doing another giveaway, only this time I want you to tell me what the prize will be......... got it so don't be getting all greedy and wanting the most expensive item in my shop......that just wouldn't be playing the game now would it? but you can pick something from my shop and whatever item gets the most requests will be the prize.

Are you all with me so far?

So this is going to run in two parts, the first part will be to pick one item from my shop which you would like to win, and post a comment with the link to the item at the end of this post, or on my facebook fan page

you don't have to post on both places, just one will do. One comment is one entry to my blog giveaway.
Then in about a week I will announce which item was the most popular choice, and that will be the giveaway, to win it you will have to post a comment on this post, my fan page, or part 2 of this blog giveaway.

I hope that is explained well enough. I will explain it again on the 2nd post, so watch out for my Blog Giveaway pt 2.

Let me just clarify a little, any comment on any post of this giveaway, or on my fan page will get your name in the hat, so to speak, if you comment once on this post, and once on my fan page and then again on the 2nd blog post, then you will have entered 3 times. Is that clear? If in doubt just ask me, because I've confused myself Ha Ha!
Have fun and good luck to everyone who enters.

moving house and moving on

I've been abandoning my blog just lately as a lot has been going on in my life.
I am moving to a new house in a week and I have a ton of packing to do! Can you even guess how much yarn I have?
So I will be busy packing and moving, I will also be without an internet connection for a while, as here in France they don't rush anything, I'm hoping I will be connected again within a week of moving, but I'm not holding my breath.
When I return I will be back in full force, with lots of new goodies to list in my etsy shop, so look out for my return.
I will also be tweeting and catching up with all my friends on facebook.
I'll still be around for a week, but I won't have much time to be very active.
I'm gonna miss you all, so don't forget me.
