Post Number 11, in which I get over excited about buttons and podcasts and the biggest snood in my world gets posted onto my Etsy Shop.

I have my first commission! It’s from a family member, does that count? I am very excited about it any way. It is for two cushion covers which will hopefully match a rather snazzy cushion which has a slight nautical theme so I have been button shopping of course! I thought this would be a prefect job for Etsy, which it was, look at this.They are just right, I tracked them down at Celestina Jewellery.

I accidently bought some sock yarn too, but just look at this colour.

It is the Sherbet Lemon colour-way from ‘Yarns From The Plain’ I just couldn’t walk away and I am so glad I didn’t, every time I look at it it makes zingy little happy things happen in my head (it is also a a baby magnet – baby that is not babe – my Tiny Troublemaker has had it off high surfaces more than once to have a little play with it). I have ordered a sock pattern to knit it with, update to follow.

I must admit I have come late to the world of podcasts which is why I have spent sizable chunks of this week catching up with the most excellent Curious Handmade podcast. I love to listen to people talking about knitting whilst I am circling the streets of my home town with a pram trying to induce an afternoon nap in an eight month old. Helen Stewart who presents it knows how to describe knitting projects in a way that has me simply itching to pick up my needles again. It is a true joy to find something new that makes you so happy without making you put on weight, I would certainly recommend a look if you get a chance.

I have just posted another snood to my Etsy shop and it is a whopper! 280cm long, made entirely of merino wool it is one of my favourite things in the world. Please do pop by and take a look if you get a chance.
