I have been thinking about all the stock i have created for various fayres etc and really want to have a good bash at selling it! I have a facebook page 'Sharky Knows' but not much has come from that.

I wondered if any of you out there have any experience/tips/ideas on how i can boost sales???
Time of year has a major impact on what i sell as at the moment i have a lot of scarves and blankets in stock, mostly winter items. Leading up to Christmas however i am not sure how much i will be able to do fayre wise due to the huge belly i will have (its got a baby in it, i'm not just eating a lot of pies).

Check out my Facebook page and let me know if you can think of anything!! Any suggestions will be VERY welcome!!!

Bobbles on the way

Just thought i'd do a quick post to keep you up to date. The bobble blanket is well on its way! I have had a week of concentrated effort and it is almost the size i want it to be, just wide enough to tuck into a cot bed.

Just got a bit more to do then got to decide what kind of border to use. Linda from Chalky's world, aka. Nany Goat, got me Around the Corner Crochet borders so i have loads to choose from!

We have our second scan in 2 weeks and hopefully we will find out what sex it is. Then i can decide what colours to use for the edging and finish the lot!!

We have had some lovely knitted items from Nanny Goat for the baby and a little surprise from one of her knitting blog friends. I will post about them soon!

A project i must complete...somehow!

My mother in law Linda over at Chalkys World came across this pattern for the baby...

They are gorgeous! and i love them! But i am rubbish.

I am so rubbish at crocheting shoes like this, i cant seem to cope with the sole where you have to crochet around the chains to create the oval. But i am determined to have a go.
Don't worry Stickle Brick (current name for the baby haha).... i will try my best!!!

If you have a go, let me know how you get on!!
