Knitting and stuff :)

So this week has been a busy one. My yarn finally arrived, opening the box to see so many full cones of beautifully coloured lambswool was exciting.

New yarn, so pretty!

I immediately started knitting orders for a new stockist, a collection of 8 critters. New colour schemes are being introduced and there is a new critter in the gang (more info in next weeks blog!)  It's really exciting to be working on orders and I can't wait to have my critters in new shops and going off to new homes.

Also this week my knit machine decided to break, leaving me in a major panic, after 12 hours of try to fix it, getting quotes on getting a new part I discovered the good news that I can fix it myself. So next week I will be learning another new skill, Knit machine fixing and maintenance! It's one thing I love about being a designer maker, everyday I learn something new.

This week I also received exciting information regarding my work, more to come in the next few months. New labels for my critters and the discovery that I can work all hours of the day just to produce lots of little felted toys. It has been a fun week.

Next week I hope to have a new critter to introduce and hopefully reveal some of my new stockists.

Ooooooh box of goodies!!! Looks like Uppinghams?? I love the smell of their 2ply lambswool. I am making cushions out of it too at the moment. Love your designs Victoria - I have a Passap too only its just a Duo80 and not the E6000 (I wish!) Do you use any other machines? I use a Brother 965i aswell.

Hi Phil, Yes it is Uppinghams, one of my favourite things is when I get a box of yarn delivered :) I have a single bed brother machine but I hardly ever use it as my passap is my baby :D
