The finished bag
When I look at this small bag I cant believe how long it took me to make and what a performance it all was. Any way it is now finished and all though the scan isnt brilliant it does more or less show what it looks like.
I have spent most of the day doing very boring book work, it is amazing how long it takes to register 18 pony foals. And how much it costs. I just hope the few buyers that are lined up will actually buy.
It was freezing cold this morning and I have been snuffling and sneezing all day again, so I suppose I have a cold. The sun has come out for a little while but more showers are forecast.
My knitting needles arrived today, I am going to be very ambitious and try to knit a tam o' shanter, on round needles, not sure how I count on round needles but I have knitted enough easy things in my life to try something a bit harder. We will see. I bought my needles on line from a place called the Wool Shack in Western Australia, they arrived very promptly.
Well I am off to walk and then feed the pugs, Maggie who is pregnant is getting rather large and she huffs and puffs after me like a little grampus. She is black so it will be interesting to see if she has black or fawn pups, last time they were all fawn, easier to sell but I love my blacks. I must take a photo of them but they are never still and the male dog Tuppy has had another (expensive) hot spot so has a shaved area. I keep trying to sketch them but they are not easy to do.
