Almost 12 Months Old

Can you believe it. Knits in the City is coming up for its first Birthday April 1st. Party at the Print House Tuesday 20th April 2010. Let me know if you are coming as I need to provide numbers to Jimmy. Meet at 6.00, eat at 7.00. There will be cake!!!!

Don't forget the clocks go forward tonight and we all loose an hour in bed but the nights are lighter and it really feels like spring is on the way.
Have had a busy time lately. Had to get an outfit for the Grand National. Very understated this year...... No Big Hat and Frock this time. I am going in Black Harem Trs and Top, fancy shoes and boyfriend blazer. Just need some chunky bangles and a necklace and I am set. Hope I don't feel too under dressed........... who me????!!!!*****

Have competed on the horse. Bit of a disaster my legs are too fat for my boots and were giving me bruises (used to fit like a glove) so I had to do the dressage test in my socks. Looked like nobody loved me from the Knees down but we still came 5th. Have got to get new boots and am trying to get the old ones stretched.

New advertisement featured in the knitting press. If anybody has seen it I would love some feedback.
Ohhhh - really exciting. My Knitting Group is featured in this months "The Knitter" issue 17. Haven't seen a copy myself yet but looking forward to getting my paws on it.

So whats new into stock since last time. Mirasol Books really cute one for girls and women (featuring Wachi - 85% pima cotton and 15% silk) and one for boys and men (featuring Lachiwa - 60% pima cotton and 40% linen) Yarns come in the most beautiful shades, very crisp, and both are DK weight with good lengths on the 50g balls.

I have already raved about the New Louisa Harding books and yarns. Aimee has been selling really well - I am still waiting for stock from the US but it is expected soon.

I have a new product coming in soon Patons Batik. It is a one ball scarf - each ball of yarn at 100g makes a great summer scarf - there are 6 Divine shades, knits up on 8mm needles so either perfect as gift in either finished garment or project. The yarn is 80% cotton, 20% polyester - machine washable at 30 degrees. At £5.95/ball I am expecting these to fly out.
Designer Knitting Issue 5 Spring Summer landed on Thursday. I only get a limited stock of this magazine - sells like hot cakes includes 31 yes 31!!!!! patterns - at £4.50 this mag is a must. and it you don't already have the new Debbie Bliss Spring Summer mag why not get them together as you will pay the same postage for both mags when delivered together................

I am still working on my fresian cow project from The Autumn Winter Designer Knitting Magazine. Hopefully I will have pics to show next time I blog.
A good knitting TV programme is on - I can hear it in the background - don't laugh it is the search for Dorothy - I love this stuff - cheesy I know but what the heck we all have our guilty pleasures.
Off knitting now. Will blog again soon.
Happy Easter.
