Time for a new peg bag. My old blue plastic one blew away in a gale and got smashed. I chose the 'pegs' peg bag handmade by Ruth Kearns.
I always like to put the washing outside to dry if possible - there is nothing like the smell of fresh air in the laundry when you bring it in back indoors. The fabrics Ruth uses are really uplifting and make pegging out a bit more joyful (this one has mini irons on it).
The pink fabric has little laundry symbols on it and rainclouds for the lining.
Hand made peg bag by Ruth £14.95 @ Jolie. http://www.jolie-home.co.uk/mall/departmentpage.cfm/Jolie/_435861/1/Handmade-%26-Vintage

I finished the baby dress in Rowan Merino Silk dk. I don't have a baby to knit for at the moment, but I like knitting little things - maybe one day I will. I couldn't actually knit when my daughter Scarlett was born 23yrs ago now, but if I had been able to, I would have knitted her this. Oh well another sample for the shop! Should I knit her something now she's grown up? Possibly, but Scarlett is such a good knitter herself she doesn't need me to. Hey, ho!
New in from Debbie Bliss, spring colours in Eco Baby. This a cotton yarn that knits to the same tension as Baby Cashmerino, so all the patterns for each yarn are interchangeable.
'Rain, rain go away, come again another day'.
Brighten up your day with a basket of flowers. Poacher's basket above new in at Jolie. Perfect for storing magazines and knitting books of course. £14.95
Balcony basket (also £14.95) filled with cheery Cosmos.
Well, who knows who's going to drop by on a Wedsnesday afternoon for cream tea Knit and Chat at Jolie? For those old enough to remember - Nick Heyward from Haircut 100. He is working next door with Phil, on a new project and admitted that he is very partial to homemade scones. And he can crochet.......taught by his gran, so he is definitely allowed in!
