More prizes

WMK has sent these gorgeous prizes for the diety raffle. This little baby set is so cute, it almost makes you want to start reproducing. Almost, I said, ALMOST!!!! If you don't have babies to knit this for, the yarn is lovely and soft and squishy and would make something very nice indeed.

And just look at these tulips you can make - so pretty, I want to have a go myself. Sadly I seem to be eating too much to be gaining any raffle tickets (had a melon, banana and nectarine smoothie for lunch... and a bag of minstrels for pudding!)

I've just been making things in the kitchen too - blackberry ice cream anyone? Or how about strawberry and banana smoothie lollies? As you may have noticed, the cake situation has calmed right down. Well, it was calm, but yesterday I made a chocolate one (no photo, sent it on its way before I got the camera out), I have one to do for this Saturday, one for Monday and one for the Monday after. It seems to be all or nothing. Whilst I am very pleased for the business, I would really like to get on with the many knitting projects which have been started. I am hopelessly over-started with things - socks, a shawl, hats, mittens waiting to be cast on, bunny egg cosies, blankets. Wonder if I'll actually finish anything this holiday. Doubtful, very doubtful!

Lots of magic here Mrs SB. That baby set is very lovely but the tulips are gorgeous too. Now, the question is, will you blog your boys' beady creations or would they protest?

Er....not very tactful of me but....WOOOOHOOOOO I'VE LOST 2.5LBS this week!!!!!

Next week should be interesting as we're going overseas - to the Isle of Wight!

Just going to check your stash on Ravelry now to see if that yarn has made it's way in there ;)
