Yarn for sale

Hello again, I finally found the lead for my camera so I have been able to upload my photos :) This is a hat I made for one of Jez's colleagues and rowing buddies. It was his 40th birthday on Valentines day. It's my own pattern, I'm going to make it again in Rowan Cork and then I'll publish the pattern. I've had these 5 flags sitting unfinished in my work basket since October and finally got round to finishing them this morning. They are made with Anchor Magicline cotton and the pattern is from a Zoe Mellor book - Nursery Knits I think?
I've got a pair of felted slippers and a circular felted purse drying at the moment - I'll blog them when they are dry and finished.
I've got an interview this afternoon, it's for 8 hours a week at my favourite clothes shop Fat Face. I'm quite nervous but excited too. I've sorted out child care for Sullivan, I may just need extra help during the holidays. I really hope I get the job, I love Fat Face and the hours are perfect. I've also got an Avon area rep coming to see me tomorrow morning to talk about settng myself up as an Avon lady. The initial outlay is £15 plus £2.90 for 5 books, not too bad I thought. I'm determined to get through the recession unscathed!
