I've been so lucky this last month to have received some amazing wool creations from various places and I've been busy trying not to buy too much because the next Buy British Month is coming up in November.
Last BBM I got some amazing things and I've just now, finally, got my last custom slot from then sorted. Mich at Woolly Wumpkins is making me some longies for James in her gorgeous Nimbus colourway.
That, along with the longies we got yesterday from Ali at Pixie Knits, who kindly knitted up the Elvira Babylonglegs Merino DK I'd bought, mean we're up to date on all things woolly with the exception of two soakers from Lisa at The Nappy Garden.
And, speaking of the Nappy Garden, Lisa is one serious cloth temptress. Just this month alone I have on the way, via TNG, a Holdens Landing LWI dip dye toddler bedbug and I still don't know whether it's going to be all autumnal colours or all icy winter ones!
Also from Lisa and on their way shortly, are two Dunk n Fluff large nappies in some fabulous hard to find fishy prints which will be brilliantly gender neutral in the event of James ever getting a brother or sister.
While we're on the subject of babies, one of my oldest friends has just given birth to her first child, a little boy, who went nameless for almost a week. He has now been given an amazing name and it's a wonderful tribute to her late father, who was killed when we were only five years old while working as a photographer for the newspaper I later went on to work for.
So, I'd like to say a huge congratulations to Amy and Alan on the arrival of Wilfred John Samuel, welcome to the world little one.
