Just popping in to say hi

I'm still around but just stupidly busy. We've being working on the garden today & cutting hedges back etc before winter & yesterday was spent turning two 'Stinkin' 'dales into beautiful fluffy bouncy dogs who are feeling very chuffed with themselves.

I've also been planning what we're doing regarding Christmas presents. As our new mortgage is twice that of our old one & we've had a LOT of expenses with the new house cash is a bit 'tight'. So I've decided to make handmade presents. Some of those due to be gifted read my blog so I'll have to be careful revealing things before December 25th but lets just say an order has been placed here and here but the two aren't to be combined. I'll be using stashed yarns as much as possible but the first order was essential as I have a severe shortage of 6ply sock yarn in autumnal colours.

The project started recently on holiday has now been finished but you'll have to wait again for pics as it's heading to other side of the world in a parcel tomorrow & again I don't want to spoil a surprise.

btw: All projects will be listed in my Ravelry account as none of the people I'm knitting for are members. My user name is blueadt so no surprises there!
