December Update!

Rox..your longies are done. i'v re lanolised them so they are all fresh upon you getting them back. No matter what mum did, RE short rows, it left slight holes, if not holes, then a marked appereance. So, rather than unpick for a 4th time, she has left out the short rows, and increased the rise slightly for Scarlett. I'm sure that will work fine, and at least the longies remain in tact. :-)

Nicola, your 600g superwash merino is in soak now, to be dyed up tonight. I am really excited about this. Firstly, I love working with superwash merino, it is super soft too! Secondly, I can't wait to see the contrasting silverbacks!!!! You must show us pics of the knitted cardis on your boys!

Cara.......the large soaker is almost complete, I will lanolise them both and they should be with you by the weekend.

Sophie!!! Your next silverback is being started asap!!!! The yarn is already and waiting to go. It is a little darker than the last lot.....but just as scrummy so hope you love it!

Katie and Nikki - RE your lost at sea yarn, Iv dyed  more of this up for you, and each batch is coming up a shade lighter than the original. No idea why. So, I will picture it shortly and post Nikkis off tomorrow, as all 3 of your skeins are the same colour..... Katie, I need to know if you are using the 2 skeins for one whole item, if so, I need to dye you up 2 skeins at the same time, rather than the original, and the new one, as they differ.

As soon as all our customs are complete, we will be starting on the BBM longie slots. Hopefully most of these will be done before Christmas, but there are no garuantees, if you specifically want your set finished before Christmas, please let us know and we will see what we can do. 

Thanks ladies!!!
