big bootees

I had a late birthday surprise this week, with a package all the way from Australia, from a wonderful dear blogger friend, with lots of lovely stuff - including:





Aren't they just fabulous?
They may look like baby bootees but they are big enough for me.



They are keeping my toes toasty warm in this poor excuse of a summer which we are having.


Hand-knitted by a woman called Sheila (who i guess may be rather special).

I may have to investigate further - as to whether she uses a pattern, any tips and secrets to her success - don't you think?

Thankyou Sheila, i love them.

(also the towel... pics will follows!)

They are so cute! I've been away for a while but have been reading your blog. Guess what - I just bought a table loom!!! Going on a weaving course next month, so might pester you for tips!!! Hope all is well.

Hi Lettuce

Thanks soooo much for linking the shop. That's really sweet of you. It's quite exciting, really - I just hope everyone else thinks so!!!

I didn't see the roses programme although I'm surprised I missed it because I used to watch every gardening/plant-related programme going once upon a time. Perhaps we should make contact and ask them to repeat it!
