Awaiting yarn??

I am having some 'issues' with a few of my dyes, which I am sorting (a new supplier) so please bare with me.....

Strawberry fool is proving to be my nightmare colourway right now!!!

If you are awaiting this yarn, I will be in contact shortly....I have devised a plan of action...so if you don't hear from me soon, feel free to shout down the net at me!

Had a bit of a traumatic day today, with JJ ending up in hospital mid dyeing!!!!! So..I have another attempt at strawberry fool currently drying, and the new plan, is in action, in the dye pot as I type!!!!

Thanks for your patience ladies and huge apologies for the delay!!!

Hmmmmm what do you think?

I'v been playing around with LWI dyeing...as I am totally loving some of the BOV and wool interlock colourways out there at the minute.
So... I thought why can't we have the option of woollies dyed that way???........I tried it on some knitted up shorties that have been hanging around..and this is the result!!!

I actually think, given certain colours and a little more practice.......and I use our circular knitted longies or soakers (this was an old flat knitted item) that this could look truly wonderful!!!! It would look especially fab with embelishments!  Anyway....what do you think? Would it be something that would interest you? I may do JJ some and see how that goes..hhmm a camo effect!!!!

(BTW..if anyone wants these..they are yours for £8! but only really suited as a soaker or around the house as the wool is not overly thick)

Oh and Sarah...here's your Blues the word, so far!!!

I hope you like it..the colours are just amazing!!!!

A little bit of this and that

Fancied updating a little....as we've been so busy lately, with BBM and WCM, and still are!

We'll be bringing to wahm month, an ABK/TNG christmas ooga set size 12-18mths, a ABK/TNG blue/orange ooga set also size 12-18 mths and to BBM we'll be bringing a WN/JR/TNG/Beau Beau safari collab, semi cusomisable and gender neutral!!! Plus our forthcoming HO/PP/ collab due next week, also semi customisable! A few other randoms planned too including an extremely indulgent and warm baby blanket! This will be very unique and very adorable!

 TNG hats has expanded!!! We now do tie ups in a uniquely knitted way! No ribbing or joins...just one whole hat and it's fab! Even JJ can put it on by himself *proud mummy! Here is JJ in mums most recent creation and it looks so fab! This was rustic yarn and I'm really pleased!

Hmmm what else has been going on behind the scenes....oh yes :-)

We also have a new section to our shop (well will have by the end of tonight) Beau Beau Creations! I am setting up a tshirt section, for you to be able to purchase hand embroidered Tshirts, in any size, most colours, with your favourite fabrics embelished onto the front! Here's some pics!

Anyone for a Fluff and Stuff? These gorgeous nappies are extremely popular, but can work out expensive if you order and get lumbered with custom charges too! Forget about that...we have a truck load, well almost, due in approx 4 weeks time depending on chrimbo post, and I am ever so excited! Here's some examples of her work.

Oh and finally.....More UK wahm nappies also due, possibly before mid December, but no promises. WeeNotions and something a little special and we are SUPER excited about it. Will keep hush hush for fear of prying eyes ;-) but keep an eye on here for updates!
