great find

Thanks to my friend Penny I found this great site
if you need to find a certain yarn it's fantastic!
I spent ages on the site it's amazing, it lists all the yarns by brand, name, weight, fiber, texture and more. I only wish I had found it years ago.

Still working on it

I have managed to find out how to create a pdf, adobe reader has a wonderful program that turns files into pdf automatically, so I am working on 5 patterns for now to see how they look, and I will try and put some on here as soon as I can.

Other than that we have a delivery of 1,500 pairs of shoes coming this afternoon, which we have to carry up 3 flights of stairs, so I won't be doing anything else today. This is another new venture.

I am also sock mad, I started knitting socks less than a year ago and I love making them, everybody will be getting a pair for Christmas!
I am in the process of designing a pair, but it's still work in progress, so watch this space for the finished article.

Time for a change

OK I have been away forever and it's now time to revamp my blog, I have really neglected it.

I fully intend to add some of my knitting patterns at some point so it will be more of a knitting blog than anything else, I will throw in a little jewelry from time to time, trouble is my little one won't let me make much at the moment, but he will let me knit Yay!

This is one of the sweaters that I have managed to knit for my son, (not one of mine), this pattern is available on Ravelry for free, it's the child's placket-neck pullover and here is the link

If you haven't joined Ravelry yet then I strongly suggest that you do, it's full of great resources and helpful advice, as well as hundreds of patterns, it only takes a few days to get your invitation so go to the site and register

I have been working on some new designs and I thought it was time to start sharing some of them, so watch this space for some of my patterns.

I would also like to learn how to make pdf's and how to link paypal to my blog, so if anyone can help me with resources that would be a great help to me.
