184/365 Joy's knits

You'll all know by now that I am patiently awaiting the birth of my granddaughter and the trip to Surrey to help out the new parents. As I dont yet know when I'm going, and also dont know when I'll be coming back, I've just put my shops in "holiday" mode so no-one can buy from them while I'm away. But when I do get back I'll be listing some more of my knits, so here is a sneak preview.
All these items will be sold in aid of WAAA, I want only to recover my material and postage costs so I can buy new materials and knit more things. If you like any of them please feel free to make me an offer (I can only say yes or no, depending on whether or not the contribution to WAAA is enough!)

First is a crocheted knee blanket, approx measurements 1.2m x 1.2m, would make an ideal Christmas gift for your gran, Mum, aunt, sister or the old lady down the road.

Or perhaps they would prefer these ladies gloves, the cuff is a very dark green, the hands are white, pastel blue, green and yellow acrylic double knit, very warm and soft to the touch.

How much fun is this pink striped tank top? It's approx. size 16/18, again acrylic yarns, height 63cm, chest 125cm. I dont suppose your teenage daughter would be seen dead in it, but are you daring enough to wear it yourself?

and how about a hand-knitted tie for the man in your life, or your Dad, son, brother, uncle, nephew or even the man next door.

If you would like to purchase any of these items, please first leave a comment and I'll get back to you whenever I can. My comments are now moderated so if you leave an email address for me I'll make sure it doesn't get published.

Our next door neighbour crocheted two blankets like that for the boys when they were babies, they used them for years, even on top of their beds on cold nights. They are still packed away for sentimental value, so add "babies" to your list of recipients!

Yes, Alex and Oli have one each that my Mum made for them, still packed away in my wardrobe, but this one is probably a bit too big for a cot.

I love the blanket, I imagine you've been doing lots of knitting for your new granddaughter too.
