Crafty Business

And here it is , finally , my Cafetiere cover ! Tried it out on Wednesday when some of the Knitting group girls came over for morning coffee . Seemed to work a treat , or was it the fact that it was very hot outside that has something to do with keeping the coffee warm! We'll find out later .
Had a lovely afternoon Shop sitting for Liliths' yarn studio , here is one of my companions during my shift . He's a cuddly sheep who's guarding the gorgeous fibre in that tub . I was allowed to look , not touch!
And here is another of my companions , Chookiebirdie Owl , he's keeping an eye on those beautiful hand-dyed balls of yarn . Doesn't say much Owl , its all in the gorgeous eyes!
And this is one of the works of art on Liliths wall , colours just like Monets' Waterlilies paintings .
And here is another work of art , its kinda like installation art , as it keeps changing (something to do with the yarn having to be sent to customers .....)
Beautiful yarns , gorgeous colours !
So , in between packing and posting parcels , having cups of tea , I did a little knitting. The start of my Cookie a KAL , pattern Eunice , yarn DIC Smooshy. And I sat in the big fat comfy leather armchair and knitted , whilst some lovely fiddle music played in the background (are you jealous yet ?)
Only one visitor , a lovely man named Eddie , who came to see how I was getting on and ask where the wee doggie was . He'll be back soon , no worries !
Hope you are having a lovely time Lilith , its a pleasure to Shop sit while you are gone !
