Washi Tape and Washing in the rain.

I have to share my new found love for Washi Tape, it is brilliant and can be used for so many things. There are so many designs, see photos and links below to buy some, it's a must have.

It was so sunny this morning I did something I rarely do, hang my washing outside and of course within 15 minutes we had a torrential downpour, that validates why I use my tumble dryer! Sun is shining again now but I am not being caught again.

I took some cute photos of my dogs looking through the decking to check where the hens were in the garden before going down.  I don't know why I have worried about the hens over the last two years if the dogs were to get near them, they are a tough little trio with no fear of anything at all. You can see them on my Clickclackknits Instagram.  Had to include some photos of my lovely trio of hens below.

Looking for lots of lovely worms to eat now free to
roam in the whole garden, no more pretty plants to ear!

She is dust bathing although it doesn't look like that, the sun
was shining on her!

I have nearly finished knitting my latest order for the Paul McCartney Tank top. I do love knitting this but am also really pleased when they are nearly complete.  

Some new hats have been added to my shop.

Knit using random patterning yarn.
I love the bright colours in this hat.

Rain is back again and very windy, so finally given in and put the heating on.  Forgot to bring in the dry wood to light my fire so I won't have the pleasure of knitting in front of the fire today.  Never mind, tumble dryer working overtime, dogs looking a little sad because they hate the rain, hens hiding under the decking where I put their second food tray, the guinea pigs and rabbit are all snug in their houses, so the only thing left for me to do it make a lovely latte (yes I love my coffee machine but do only have two a day!) and knit. 


Huge discounts in our Clearance section throughout October.

Exciting Time

Had a 'exciting' time last week as we went to Go Ape - myself and my three daughters.  I thought I knew fear of heights before I went but I didn't!, I managed two of the 5 courses but then had to stop as I froze at the top of a ladder for which seemed like hours but was actually only a few minutes. So proud of my daughters as they completed the whole course. My youngest daughter would do it again and again, she loved it.   

Feeling a bit sorry for myself over the last few days as had a tooth extracted which took 45 minutes and a lot of hand and head holding by the dental nurse!  The tooth just didn't want to leave the safety of my mouth so was clinging on as much as possible :) Hopefully don't have to do that again for a very long time.

Got caught in a torrential downpour this afternoon.  Went to post my orders and it was quite nice weather outside. As there was a long queue I had to wait about 10 minutes and by the time I went back outside it was torrential rain overflowing the gutters and huge puddles everywhere.  Seemingly it caused a lot of traffic jams as well as the drains were flooding as could not cope with the amount of rain.  Sun is shining now!

Have created a few new hat designs this week which I am really happy with.

Chunky Cable Hat in Acrylic, can be knit in lots of colours

Different cable pattern in two colours

I call this my bumble bee beanie in DK Acrylic

My Big Bang Theory Hat has been very popular over the last two weeks which is great as I love knitting this hat.

Three of my hats featured in these lovely treasuries this week.

I bought a lovely selection of Sublime pure merino wool this week and as the weather is not supposed to be very nice this weekend I am going to sit in front of my log fire, complete my orders hopefully and then I will be able to start knitting some new designs with this wool. I love the postman delivering new wool:) My office is so full of wool it needs a room to itself.

Now going to make a coffee, grab a nice bar of chocolate and knit :).
