Went into town today it was so cold minus 8 the coldest it has been for years forgot to wear my hat and my ears were numb by the time I got back. I was glad to get back home to the heat and my knitting. I have an shop on etsy does anyone else have an etsy shop I would love to hear from anyone who does.I am always trying to think of new ideas and different things to make. Ideally I would love to have my own little knitting shop with a little tea room where people could come in and browse and have a cuppa and a chat at the same time. Here in Scotland there are fewer an fewer knitting shops and shops that sell wool and patterns are few and far between. I would even be up for teaching people to knit as I know very few people who can knit. My mum taught me when I was little that's why I called my etsy shop gotitfrommymama. I get such pleasure from being able to knit and I would love to pass it on. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and all the best for 2010.

Cannot believe the amount of snow we have had it has started to rain today but snow is still lying. Christmas was so lovely don't remember the last6time we had a white Christmas. I have been busy knitting little Mary Jane shoes and some bootees unfortunately I have been so busy with Christmas and my family coming home that I have not had time to take any photos of my knitting but I will soon. I have been doing quite a lot of cardigans and boleros for my little grand-daughter who is ony 7 months old and her name if Holly. I don't know what to knit next maybe some little jumpers. I have quite a few pieces to put in my etsy shop again I just need to get some photos taken and I will after New Year. Hope Christmas was good for everyone and I hope 2010 is a good year. I hope to do more blogging inj the new year.
