Having Fun with FaceBook

Anyone out there on Facebook?
I'm having loads of fun with it....especially the superpoke function, you get to throw sheep at people.... *grin*
I am Sarah Hughes, if anyone wants to be my fwend hehehehe

A Window of Opportunity

Well, I have had a really busy morning......
The weather has been awful here over the past week or so, rainy but muggy, so I've had to grab every window of opportunity I could, with regards to washing clothes, and dyeing wool....
Woke up this morning and the wearther is fine...really hot and I sprang into action!!! I'd hanked up some wool yesterday, just in case I could get some dyeing (or more importantly DRYING) done....
So I now have a lovely line of whites out, and 3 hanks of 50% Merino-50% Alpaca drying on the line....
Quite pleased... *grin*

OOh......something for MEEEEEEEEE.... *grin*

This has been my Stitch n Bitch project fo a month or so.... a wavy rib cuff, and an anatomically correct toe using so using sock wool bought on my Skipnorth Jaunt for £1 :)
I knit the main body of the sock using the free Regia sock pattern.....

Look what I did yesterday :)

This colourway I have called "Hercules"... and I dyed it to compliment the Size 1 nappy/wipes set that has been specially made, by StuffieNappies

This colourway is "Tutti Frutti #3" as I have dyed it to go with the last nappy in a set of 3 made by Stuffienappies....

And finally, I couldn't resist doing another run of "Phoenix"......I love it :)

The wool is all overdyed 50% Merino - 50% Alpaca.......dreamy soft, and fantastic to work with. No felting issues whatsoever...dream to knit with, and I am sure a dream to wear :o)

Tropical and Beautiful Blues Shorts

These are two pairs for one lucky little fella in Scotland!!!! Because his Mum ordered two pairs of shorts at the same time, I upgraded the blue ones to have longer legs and pocket for no extra charge :)
Loyalty should be rewarded I think :D

Power to the people!!!!
