Looking back on 2013

I expect that many of you, like me, are running around now like mad people trying to arrange everything for Christmas. Juggling family, home and job: it’s a balancing act. I have not even posted my cards yet!

It will all come together in the end, it always does. Yet the daft part is, out of all the things that are worrying you now, they just don’t matter on the big day.

To recap 2013, this has been a really busy year for me and I am now just trying to get the last of the Christmas orders out and posted – have faith, it will all be done.

On looking back we have made some lovely things like the jockey jumper as it has now become affectionately known back in April. We also had success with Hayley and her lovely angora jumpers which we showed off in our July newsletter.

I have tried to be quite diverse in the things I have made, like using different yarns and colours for baby things rather than the traditional pale pink and blue in baby DK. For instance, there was the navy jumper and shoes for a little chap called Danny.

We have finally made a contribution to the Menswear Department – a cardigan! (I will be building on this, I promise).

Hats and gloves in these lovely sets…

…not forgetting our three baby jumpers in this lovely Cookey Cream wool which I bought at the Cockermouth Woolfest back in July.

We made a shrug for a wedding back in September and gloves for a charity. We have ended the year with the craft fair at Bury Grammar School and by helping a very worthwhile charity, the Babygrow Appeal. We sent them some goodies and I hope they had a very successful night last night.

Lastly I would like to thank everyone on the team for working so hard this year and of course thanks to you too for looking in.

Our final thank you must go to our latest two lovely models who have made my hats look so special.

I shall be signing off now for a couple of weeks, but will be checking in on the emails when I can.

We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. 

Lots of love
