This is for a friend of mine to give to her Gran from her two little girls. I like the way its turned out and I hope she likes it. The embroidery looks better than I thought it would as I'm not so confident at embroidery. Anyway, another comission completed.

And another one sells! Yay! I've got so much to do this half term that once this one that I put on Ebay today sells I can't put anymore on until I make some more pouches. I've got some of the Cath Kidston floral left and I bought some lovely fabric at Hanson's in Sturminster Newton the other day to make more. Anyway, here is a picture of 8 balls of yarn that arrived today to go into sock kits. I also had to quickly make a set of row markers as I've run out of those too. It's all going terriby well.

Amazingly, today I sold two sock kits! One of them went on Ebay in the usual way and then I had an email from a lovely lady in Biggleswade via Ebay asking if I could 'Buy It Now' one for her. So I did. I'm thinking that 'Buy It Now' might be better than auction so I've put another one on with both auction and 'Buy It Now' This is with Drops Fabel yarn and the pouch is with Cath Kidston fabric.

Two more zippy pouches made for sock kits. The pink is Cath Kidston fabric bought at the Cath Kidston factory shop in St Neots. This is a great find, not only fabric but lots of lovely pretty things. I'm not going to use King Cole yarn in these kits, I'm using Drops Fabel instead. This will make them a little more expensive but hopefully worth it. I have sold a few of these on Ebay so here's to a few more. The kits make lovely gifts and it isn't that hard to knit socks. Such a feeling of satisfaction and so cosy and pretty. It's a win, win really.

I've just put these socks on Ebay I'm thinking about whether to open an Ebay shop, I'm not sure if at the moment it would pay for itself as I'm not selling very much, people seem to like the sock kits and this is the first time I've put socks on, so I'll have to see how they go. Obviously I make less on the socks as they take about 10 to 12 hours to knit whereas I can put together sock kits much quicker once the pouch is made. I'd better get on with making some more!
