I've been spotted here my blue cable knit wrist warmers. Don't know if it will bring me any more sales but it's lovely being spotted.
If you want to submit a listing to the site:
Your pictures have to be good, clear crisp pictures and the item has to fit into one of the following.
and you need to link the picture to where people can buy the item, and that's it.
So why not have your handmade items spotted, what are you waiting for?

Trip to the UK

I will be going to visit my parents and son in the UK in a few weeks, my son will be 18 years old on the 11th March, where did all that time go?
I can't wait to see him again, and I can't wait to see my mum and dad too, and I have a new great nephew to see named Oliver Boo.

I'm trying to limit the amount of people I see this time, as I never get time to spend time with the people I want to see.
In one week these are the people who I will be seeing,
My son
My parents
My sister and neices and great nephew and neice
my in laws
my in laws parents
my best friend Julie
my ex mother in law (this is where my son lives)
My other best friend Linda (who is also my ex sister in law)
hopefully that's it!

How on earth will I find time to go yarn shopping? As whilst I'm there I will be doing some yarn shopping of course, although I will have to post my yarn back here as I'm travelling light!
I will be looking for some cotton yarn in Spring colours, and of course any bargins that I can find.

Thinking about spring

It's come to that time when I must start thinking about creating things for Spring. I am working on some new items, and need ideas for more, the wrist warmer sales are slowing down now and I need something to replace them with for Spring.

I have been doing a little crochet and made this cute little newsboy cap, I'm really pleased with it for my first effort. Just need a better model, I have to sack that lamp!

I need to buy some cotton yarn to make some more hats for spring and summer, which means another trip to buy yarn, which luckily is my favorite thing to do.
I am also thinking about making some reusable cotton make up remover cloths, and some dish cloths, not sure if they are in demand enough though, I need to do some more research on that one.
I may even knit some more bags, but I'm trying to avoid that until I've sold the ones in my etsy shop

more wrist warmers

All I seem to do just lately is knit wrist warmers, and I never seem to get bored of knitting them. I love this cable pattern and I love making them in different colours, maybe that's why I never get bored.
If I didn't like what I was making then I wouldn't make them.....
.........unlike mens socks in dull brown! I was really unhappy the whole time I was knitting them, and I have another pair to knit in a boring beige colour too, which I'm not looking forward to, but I have promised that they will be done next week. I prefer to use self patterning yarn as you always want to see how they are going to turn out, makes it much more interesting. Maybe I won't agree to do any more mens socks in boring colours.
