Baby Steps!

Here is the first photo of my goodies, notice how there all wrapped beautifully with black tissue paper?

Here's my bounty of treasure. Isn't it fab? I'm loving the Happy Hooker and have even started to a make a crochet chain. Granted a very boogelly one, but I can take it back and try again. If at first you don't succeed.....

The Cookie Cutters are just in time for Halloween, I shall have to get baking! How very excting!

I was going to take a picture of Ms Stash's Jaywalker, but I am too tired, it's been a busy week and I am ready for a good night's sleep and non-early start. Besides Ms Stash takes much better photos than I.
I finished the heel flap this morning and completed turning the heel this afternnon when I took it to show Ms Stash and see if she was happy with the progress.

I had planned to contiunue on it during Midsomer Murders tonight, but when I settled on the couch and got it out the bag I was missing a needle, I will have to check with Ms Stash and see if I have left it behind.
It's taken me a week for me to get this far, this is quite an acheivemnet for me. I wmust be coming down with something.

In place of the Jaywalker, I took the doomed Feather and Fan sock back and restarted,100th time lucky perhaps????
