    Valerie Coleman

  11. oooh what a choice. I also love the hammocks as they are a great idea. But actually I just fell in love with Ducky and his hat collection. Just because I am a bit of a sucker for cute toys and he has a great expression.

  15. I like anything that does not involve me knitting it:-) I like your wrist warmers as it is so hard to wear gloves when you walk the dogs, as you got to keep taking them off to do the poop patrol. Keep up the good work!

  16. Email entry from Wendy @ The Sock Shop

    My fav knitted goodies are the thumb warmers for men,brilliant idea that stops them from abusing the remote control :D (if you can make one to fit the index finger they will stop scratching thier bums too)

  17. Hi Joe, it's Loops [Louise Crane] from Loop da Loop *waves*

    My fave is defo your pom-pom scarf, really fun. I do love a good slouchy hat as well mind you!!

    Im gonna say I like your very first pom pom scarf best. Cos I can remember when you got the wool and knitted the scarf...it was like the birth of your business and hence the item that started your page, likes, and business... So Pom Pom = birth of your business.. Hope that makes sense.. Wifey aka Laura

  25. hello there - im kylie from Kylies cupcake Kitchen, Kiddies cupcake corner and Kylies cookies by post :) congrats of your lovely business - I wish you all the luck int he world xx xx

    that hat! because it's perfect and he loooves wearing it so much - must mean it's comfy, as he would have taken it off in a flash if it wasn't lol. and he looks so, so happy in it!
    i MUST get one for Siri and one for Kai!


  29. Hi Joe, we only just got linked through FB so I thoroughly enjoyed looking through all your creations & it was hard to choose ... I absolutely loved the hammock, but have no bubbies to put in it :-)
    I also love your slinky hat. Good luck getting to 1000, it's certainly well deserved.

    Tracy (Made 4 your Books)

  30. oohhh I never told you why!! Please dont say Im too late!
    chunky wristwarmers - gloves are really annoying and a bit dangerous to drive in & can you imagine mittens!! These serve the purpose perfectly, I have a metal gear knob (!!!) and is soooo cold on a morning!
    And the pom pom scarf - well Im not being funny but who wouldnt love it. You cant nbeat a cuddly scarf!

  31. Hello, for me it has to be the wonderfull ducky, i love it and NEED one, i love the cute ness, you are so so clever. on a second choice it would be the pom pom scarf, i adore it..

  50. Email entry from Carolyn Green

    Hi, my fav's are your Bear Beanies ,or anything with Pom Poms...lol xx

  51. Email entry from Rebecca Woods


    My fave item of yours is the head warmers... I think this allows people with big heads.. like me.. and my daughter who has an afro, the option to keep warm too!
    If I put a full hat on my daughter, when we take it off her hair looks like flattened carpet! lol... this way, she can have her afro out and look super cute and trendy.

    Important to keep ears warm, Me & Cleo think!

    Hope this is ok.

    Becky - from Sock factory xx
