Knitwits Yarns

I've had one of those weeks where you rush around like a blue-arsed fly and have nothing to show for it - ever get those? I've cycled to work, served lots of lovely customers (had one in today who'd heard about us on Ravelry, which was very nice), cycled home and gone to bed. I know I've done more than that but .... - you know what I mean.

I'll give you a quick chicken update - babies at one week old:

their Mum is so good and so patient! Imagine being in a small area with 7 babies ...........

... she occasionally flaps her wings and lets out a squawk and they all scatter - that must be the chicken equivalent of us throwing a hissy fit.

When it gets cold she sits down and they all crawl under her for warmth. All you can see is little heads peeping out between the feathers!

Tonight I might perk up my life by having a gin & tonic - what do you think?!


  1. I Know only to well about those weeks! Although my week has been a non-starter as first my son, then daughter, then me had a stomach a grim week!
    Wonder if my stomach will cope with a G & T?!

  2. Go nuts, Julia! Liquid G&T it is, for you :-)

    I'm doing my best to spread the word about the shop and the wool on ravelry and at the knitting groups I attend. Babahogs (coffeeshop) in Falmouth will have a window display to celebrate the first anniversary of the knit club, and (i.a.) my socks will be there. They're my Silk Garden socks on ravelry (guess what, I'm tinebeest there too!), an Estonian pattern from Nancy Bush's book, made with Noro Silk Garden and white Cornish Organic 4 ply.
