The last few colours of Debbie Bliss ecobaby fairtrade cotton arrived today (there were a few missing colours in the original order). I love the muted colours. My cousin’s daughter is expecting a little girl in September, and I will need to decide what to knit for her. If I make a larger size in the cotton, it will be useful for next summer. I may do the teddy bear jacket from the Baby Cashmerino book one, but use ecobaby, which knits to the same tension.
After our away day, we returned to find we had missed my delivery of Debbie Bliss yarns. However, I managed to get them to return the next day. All the new stock needed re-photographing and putting on the website. However, it lovely to have the cupboards all full again, and the range of colours of Baby Cashmerino is impressive. The new range of ecobaby fairtrade cotton and book has also arrived.
I also managed one afternoon helping the ladies with the flower making and hope to get along again this afternoon.
I didn’t manage too many knitted pressies this year, what with the finishing of Gary’s sweater and ongoing work on the Bellini (but on the last sleeve….). But this wee cutie, which featured in the first issue of the Debbie Bliss magazine went in with a parcel of foodie goodies for my friend Margaret.
