I've finally gotten Erica's shorties all finished up, they're fab! I love the ruffles so much, and the yarn that the customer dyed for them is just lovely for this great weather we're having.

I've also almost finished up my first skirtie, also my first almost custom (I knocked a bit off as it was my first attempt at the Ladybuz Carnation skirt pattern). Just need to weave in the ends and finish up the drawstring before lanolising it, but I wanted to get pics for my customer :D Hope she likes it! I love it, love the picot edging and the colours of the yarn she chose.

I now have my first custom through the shop to complete, and then I'll be doing some night time and day time shorties for Carter before offering another custom spot in the shop (although I have a space for a certain Gothika skirtie whenever the customer is ready :P). I will also be taking part in the 'Buy British' Month this June that is going to be featured on CNA, so keep an eye for that! I have at least one collab in the making fingers crossed :D

I love the colours of that skirty. Not a colourway I would have chosen but it's turned out gorgeously.

And I love the shorties above, gorgeous :-)

Yup I'm ready when you are :-)

Do you want payment upfront? Think I've got some funds in my pp account but not all but happy to cover fees. Invoice would be to blizzard77 @ hotmail dot com

Ordered it :D Payment when you have it all will be better, due to it being a larger size and ordering in the cascade then the price will be £26 plus postage, but I will take the money off that circ you're sending when I send you the invoice (how much was that?).

The circular needle was listed for £4.75 on getknitted

Does that sound reasonable?

Got you! You'll have to let me know if you want a yarn I have in stock or if you want me to order something you've got in mind (I am happy to do so) :D Probably be about another two-three weeks before I can get to yours though if that's alright?

I'd need about 200g of main yarn and a trim, what's Ruby's measurements? The one for Hanna was a large, 20" rise.

It reminds me of lollipops off ice cream vans!! You know those cheap but cheerful colourful ones :D

Thank you, really glad you like yours, you'll need to send me your addy btw, so I can get these and the yarn posted tomorrow - you can email it to me instead if you like or send it over facebook (or is your addy on your profile?).

Do you want to get thinking about what yarn you'd like the skirtie, if you don't see anything you fancy in my stash on ravelry (some of it is personal stash but I'll let you know if that happens lol) as I've added some new Colinette, then let me know and we can figure out whether you want a custom dye doing by either babylonglegs or Krafty Koala :D Won't be able to do the skirt for approx 3 weeks though but thought I'd let you know now in advance.

How are those fire in the sky longies coming along?

I finished them before we went to Scotland, which is a good job because I haven't touched a needle since we got back! I should post some pics :)

I love the fruit coulis skye, and Juno loves anything thats green or light blue so you have heaps there that would be great. So um, surprise me! :D Any time is great :)
