Busy Busy

It's been a busy week. First week of the term (I really hate the first week of the term), getting back into the routine, early mornings, organising lunchboxes and packing bags, extra meetings, tired children, busy busy. I really could have done with an extra week of holidays.

On the crafting front I have also been busy ( as always!) I've finished M's owlet - just need to get some buttons for the eyes and it's done. Stay tuned for a FO post for that in the next few days.

As well as that I've been trying to get a little bit of stock together. I'm helping at a cloth nappy expo tomorrow and decided I would try and sell some of my soakers (wool nappy covers). It's REAL NAPPY WEEK - if you've ever wondered about your cloth nappy choices in New Zealand then go check out The Nappy Network. So I've been busy trying to get a few things together for a stall. I'm quite excited as I've only ever sold online before and having a craft stall is something I've often thought about doing. Here is hoping I sell a few things!! I have my usual tee shirts and soakers, but as you know , knitting isn't exactly the quickest of crafts so I also whipped up a couple of sets of stitch markers and dyed some wool to make it look like I actually have a few things to sell! Fingers crossed it goes well.
