I finished Ben Bunny as a custom order for a lady who still hasn't claimed him so he might be available in my Etsy shop very soon if she doesn't get her act into gear! Speaking of my Etsy shop on February 1st it was three years since I sold my first finished toy and since then I've sold a total of 86 knitted items so I've set myself a little goal of selling 40 items this year and I've already sold two so that makes just 38 to go. Whether it happens or not remains to be seen but hey I can but try.
Gabe had an eye test at school and he got referred to the opticians... I thought that he might have to wear glasses at some point as both me and Hub wear them but was hoping it would be later rather than sooner, but then again maybe because he's got them at such a young age his eyesight will be corrected and he might not need them when he's older. He has a short sighted stigmatism in his left eye which is exactly the same as Hub and now they look totally alike too don't you think? I had Milo's tested too whilst we there but he's got 20/20 vision.
I've also managed to squeeze in a brilliant little test knit for the lovely Sandy who designs and sells patterns under the name of Phoenix Knits. This is her Love Bunny Ball but I've also used her patterns when I made Dobbie and the Mandrake if you can remember that far back. You should go check her out.
We've been on a few walks some under bright blue clear skies and some under rather grey and dismal skies but all have been extremely cold. The weather forecasters have been predicting snow for the past few days but so far there have only been a few odd flakes where if you blinked you would miss them. Apparently the snow will definitely be here starting tomorrow and carrying on into next week. I do hope so.
The pooches are settling in well together having completely mental times where they go totally mad and chase each other from one end of the house to the other and back again. Can you believe Kali was one year old on January 28th, she's getting a big girl now and is always putting Freyja in her place whenever she's naughty... which is quite often I might add.
