Is it February all Ready

Well that was a quick month. Can't believe we are into February already .
The days are very definately lengthening now though. It's great to be able to go out for a walk in the afternoon without the thought of having to be back by four.
Things have been busy at Chez Bears . Getting the long awaited news that we had got in for Woolfest has got me fired up and ready to dye .I've just taken delivery of some new yarns and fibres and hopefully there will be an announcement in late March of some very new stuff . Watch this space:0)
Now for some piccies 
First of all is a progress report on my Ripple Blanket. I'm just loving working on this.
It's a nice easy tele/film watching project. I'm going to order more of these colours and make some cushion covers to brighten up our front room.
Finished Granny Square Blanket.
 Merino /Cashmere
These two little shawls were produced using my new Shawl Balls. These are balls of yarn that have been specifically designed for shawl knitting and have large bands of colours that change as you knit .
If you want to give them a try they are now on sale in my Etsy Shop  in the Sock yarn/Shawl Ball section.
The next pic is a new venture for me . Designing.
I made all my girls beaded hand warmers for Christmas and enjoyed knitting them so much I've decided to try and put my ideas down on paper and produce patterns for them .
This is the first . I'm in the middle of writing it up just need to figure out converting files to PDF's .
Number 1 son will come in handy here .I will post back when they are ready :0)
Well that's all for now except to say Hi to my Hamilton follower. So thrilled that we will meet in June at Woolfest. My stall number is D84. And I would be thrilled to meet anyone who follows my Blog at the shows this year. Don't be shy pop by and say Hello ;0)

Silly Blogger tried already to post and wouldn't let me!!
All lovely stuff esp the blankie, wishing I had stuck to it rather than the hexagons as they take longer to make humph !!!

I have just printed off the list of venders for Woolfest and have made a note of your stall number. I see that there are a few others whose blogs I read that are going to be there. I am already getting excited.
