>Persistance pays off

>Going back to this post I searched high & low for the Noro book. When I had exhausted all the standard online shops I starting calling smaller bricks & mortars shops & eventually struck gold:

Noro Collection #1
Debbie Bliss Noro Collection #1

I remembered that a little shop in Buxton that I’ve visited a few times whilst on holiday sold Noro. They didn’t have it in stock but would check with their other two shops & then I got a call back to say they had a copy & did I want it? So to David at Sew-In of Didsbury I’d like to say Thank You. I also showed my appreciation by adding another couple of books to the order:

Cashmerino DK book
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK

Delivery was prompt & postage very reasonable so I’ll definitely be calling again.

Obviously I’ve got loads of patterns queued in all 3 books & currently my Ravelry queue stands at over 400 patterns of which an increasing number are garments for myself to be made when I get to my target weight. On the same day that the above books arrived in the post I finally made use of a Christmas gift from my Step-Mum & treated myself to this:

Special Family Knits

So now I need to rehome some cook books to make more space for my knitting library!

Now for what a lot of you have been waiting for:

Airedale Terrier puppy
Oscar

Oscar would like to thank everyone who recognises just how fantastic he is & welcomes you into his fan club. Annie is starting to enjoy him more & more & today we found them like this:
