nappyzone Wed 29-Aug-07 19:06:41

aww feel free - im going to measure up my lard bucket boy and see if she can do me some custom made ones the same only like capri length so buy away but they are truly gorgeous arent they - looks like ive sold half my sell ons so have enough for one leg now!

nappyzone Wed 29-Aug-07 19:14:43

i have emailed her wink about making them cropped trouser length - i mentioned you flame thinking with all your clout i might get a discount lol!!! I wish i had paid more attention when my mum tried to get me knitting all those moons ago!!!

FussyGalore Wed 29-Aug-07 20:33:03

ditto. might get her to teach me again. or maybe just give her a knitting asignment or two. (hehe)

im not a hooge fan of the camo ones. i like the stripes ive got, and the skulland crossbones ones... and ican think of a dozen other wee pics for her to work on, the lucky old bird grin

btw - my stripey ones STILL havnt dried!!!!!
thats 4 days and counting.

nappyzone Wed 29-Aug-07 20:35:05

blimey - i wont ever wash mine then! scull and crossbones????? where ????

FussyGalore Wed 29-Aug-07 20:44:12

thats the primary, wash before the first lanolising. think its the lanolin thats the hard to dry bit. am now seeing why i may need a stash of the damn things! grin

S&C was on one of the links the fink put lower down.

Oh and thank you to lizarose btw - apols for not acknowledging you!

it is safe to spin woollies in the machine -some people put them in a pillow case first of all to stop them getting bashed aboutgrin.

I have some custom slots for September so if any mumsnet ladies want to smile sweetly for a custom order and maybe get a discount then contact me.
