Shop update preview

I've got darks, I've got brights, I've got zingy and zesty, I've got blues and I've got reds, some old friends, some new colourways - everything to add some cheer to a dreary British summer. But I don't think you'll like it - best thing is NOT to lurk around my shop tomorrow evening... yucky old stuff!

Here's the preview.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined the Squee! sock clubs for autumn. The Plushness club is now full but there are still a couple of places left in the Encore club - let me know if you're interested.

I finished the Ribbed Lace Bolero which I knitted in Manos Silk Blend, but it's already been snaffled:

We had some very special visitors this weekend - my mother-in-law, nephew and my sister-in-law who'd been very ill earlier in the year and has made a full recovery. It was so great to see them as they don't make it over very often for several reasons including fear of flying! We had a quietish weekend just catching up with lots of food and wine and playing for the children. We recently discovered this bizarre field within half a mile of the house which has this weird crop - at first we thought it was bamboo but could it be elephant grass? Anyway, it has a right of way through it and is great for hide-and-seek!
