Beautiful Blogger Award

I'm delighted to receive this from Nicky at
I'm also a fan of her blog, so please take a look.

To receive the award I have to tell you five things you might not know about me!

  1. I lived in Turkey, Italy and Spain; each for a year when I was in my twenties and I taught English as a Foreign Language. I later worked as a sub-editor on home & interior magazines and as a PA at Channel 4 and several advertising agencies.
  2. I love 'Gold Digger' by Kanye West, but like a wide variety of music.
  3. I'm learning to play the violin and am currently playing 'Through My Window' in the Grade 2 book.
  4. My sister and friends have been dragging me along to learn to Jive (Ceroc), and I'm beginning to really enjoy it - though I'm not sure my dance partners are - I keep standing on their feet!
  5. I love pickled onions, olives and a day barely passes when I don't eat houmous.

Alpaca Socks

Look what we have for sale in the Studio! Alpaca Socks!

I've always bought the cheapest socks I can. But last year I bought a pair of these from John Arbon Textiles who sell these at all the knitting shows and at the Country Living Show. Of course they are more expensive at £11 per pair and I'd always resisted thinking 'a sock's a sock - why pay more'. Then I put these on and I just got it; I understood why people spend money on good quality socks. They are absolutely gorgeous. They are so comfy and soft.

We have all these colours in stock at the moment in small, medium and large. Pop along and buy some before they all go for Christmas presents.
