little bits of love

Tuesday already! I seem to lose myself through the days lately, with dyeing wool like there is no tomorrow I lose many hours! So whats been bubbling in my crafty cauldron this week! well a custom order I've been knitting away. The outfit will be to die for when its finished! Its such a pleasure knitting little girls clothes, dont know what it is! but I just love it!
In between dyeing for my yarn club, Im also working on a store stocking! Two pretties that came out of the post last night are the alluring 'Sea Priestess' a stunning cashmere and merion sock yarn, thats oh so soft! and would make a cute pair of socks, or even a one skein shawl!
Every lady must have a man, and the priestess is standing by the 'Heart of the Ocean' a more boyish blend but still would look really beautiful when knitted up! I was playing with colours that I dont normally use, I think stepping out into the unknown world is brave, bold and ends up being beautiful.
On the home front, my Lily is 6 months old..this came like a slap in the face when the nurse rang up to remind me about her needles! my little goddess is growing before my eyes...soon she will be playing dress up and teaparties, of course mummy will take much delight in playing with her. Shes a little bit of hubby, and a whole lot of me, and Im so glad. She's currently addicted to wheatbix! hence the complete mess of herself in the below piccky.
Another little shop update, as the colder months draw near, when you seek out layers and cute berrets, scarves and all things squishy and knitted, my little nook will be offering a limited amount of hand knits. in stunning colours, with buttons and embellishments and everything you may desire this winter...so keep an eye out for such lovelies.

now I must go and start the dye cauldron back up, and get some work done,
enjoy the bliss that is Tuesday.
