Thursday 23rd April

OT again: My youngest little boy started walking on his own yesterday and he is very proud of himself (I am proud of him too).

Today I received more gorgeous wool which will all go in my instock wool. Three different colour combinations and I love them all.
I have nearly finished the blue and sage longies, they are just drying from a lanolise and wash and I need to make an icord. They will go in my store as instock item.
I am also working on Miana's shorties for Jack using the purple rain wool. I will post a pic soon.

Monday 20th April

OT: My oldest little boy started pre-school today and I am so proud of him. He has never been left before other than with family and he was a star.

Back to business, this week I have been working on some longies which will be for sale on my instock page in a couple of days, they are size large. I love the colours, very fresh and summery.

This week I will be working on purple rain shorties for Miana's Jack and strawberry fields longies for Eleanor's Grace.

I am waiting on some more hand dyed wool which should be here very soon.

My website is open

YEAH - I am officially open for orders

I had a technical problem yesterday which has put me a day behind but now I am up and running.

I have finished my little flower shorties and they are on the shop as an instock item.

Some more gorgeous hand dyed wool should be arriving very soon and that will all go in my instock wool section.

Monday 13th April

I hope everyone is well and enjoyed easter break. Far too much chocolate was eaten in my house :-)

The chocolate strawberry shorties are finished, I just need to double check everything is working as it should be on my website and then they will go on the shop for sale. This will be next couple of days.

I am now working on longies from the aqua, royal blue and sage wool.

Coming soon to LanaVida is some more hand dyed wool in various colour combinations.

Saturday 11th April

A little update on what I am doing at the moment. I have nearly finished some medium girly shorties with a little flower I am embroidering on. I will outline the flower and make a waist cord and they are finished.

I am also part way through knitting some large shorties in the chocolate and strawberry coloured wool. I love this colourway so much.

My next task is some longies with the blue, aqua and sage wool.

All these will appear for sale on my shop over the next few days.

Lots of knitting and playing with my boys over this long weekend is planned.

Thursday 9th April

I am very excited today as my hand dyed wool has arrived and I am so pleased with it. I just loves the colours, I cant wait to see what it will all look like once knitted up.
I am planning to knit some for instock items and keep some as in stock wool.
From this point I am busy, busy!

Thursday 2nd April

LanaVida has been born

I am waiting on some gorgeous hand dyed wool at the moment and I have received some undyed wool today so will start knitting tonight. I have a few plans and ideas but at the moment I am just planning on knitting up a few in stock items for my store when it officially opens.

I will post updates and piccies as and when things are happening.

For anyone who is interested LanaVida is spanish for woollen life. Spanish is the only foreign language I speak (albeit not very well anymore!).
