Handpicked Hall Skipton

If anyone is heading for the Yorkshire Dales over Easter and looking for a nice place to shop and get a coffee, why not give Skipton a try?  We have lots of pubs too!  And a wonderful Castle!
Snuginadub now have a small stall (Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays) at Handpicked Hall which is a great place to find gifts - full of vintage treasures, home baking and quality hand made goods.  It's also right next to the bus station, just in case you're coming in that way:)

Knit a Bay Campervan Egg Cosy for Easter

I made a knitting pattern up for a Splitty Egg Cosy a while back and lots of you lovely people have had a go at those but it's been in the back of my mind that I need to make one up for Bays too, after all, there are probably more of you who own one of those than the Splits!
With Easter just around the corner, this seemed as good a time as any and has prompted me to get cracking (pardon the pun!) and adapt the pattern for Bays.
You can get the pattern for £1.75 at https://www.etsy.com/listing/126896048/knitting-pattern-knit-a-bay-campervan
Hope you like it!
Happy nearly Easter :)

Knit a Christmas Jumper / Sweater Campervan / Kombi Style!

I finally managed to finish knitting my "kids camper van jumper" (though for people rather smaller than my own kids!).  This jumper is designed to fit kids from 0-6 months up to 7 years. (I might have a go at an adult sized one later next year).
This is based on the VW Splitscreen but I'm hoping to do a Bay too (If you want a Bay one, let me know by email and I'll let you know when the pattern is available).
As it's Christmas time I figured I'd go a bit festive with the colours, hence the red, green and white and a candy cane hood!  You can of course customise your colours :)
If you fancy having a go at knitting one, the pattern is available in my Etsy shop.
Merry Christmas and Happy knitting everyone!

Campervan Egg Cosy or Christmas Tree Decoration ???

I was thinking (I know, steady on!), there is no reason you couldn't use the Campervan Egg Cosy Pattern to make some Festive Dub Decorations for your Christmas tree.
Why not sew a bell inside to add a festive touch ;)
Maybe you could fill them with some kind of Christmas scented pot pourri and stitch a felt base on them, or even better, fill them with small sweets and sew in a paper base as a treat for the kids (unless they are liquor chocolates in which case back off kids, they're mine!).
If you decide to give it a go I'd love to see some photos - just send me an email - tracy@snuginadub.co.uk

Campervan Cakes and Christmas Cakes

Just had to share a photo of the cake our 15 year old son made for his Dad's birthday - well done son!
Complete with marzipan and icing to match our own Splitty, coconut grass, chocolate crunchy rocks and a jelly stream all to remind us of a wonderful weekend camping with the Late Bay Club in our van (we were invited, honest!) at Malham Cove in Yorkshire.

He has also made our Christmas cake - taken from a recipe in Decembers Good Food Magazine.  
The Edd Kimber Family Christmas Cake on page 192.  
It has come out really well and we can't wait to try it!

Campervan Kindle and iPad Covers - great Christmas gifts :)

Just found these fabulous cases / covers for Kindles and iPads made by WhimsyWooDesigns on Etsy and based on the VW Campervan (Kombi / Bus).  Thought they would make a fantastic Christmas present for someone!  (Husband - are you reading this!!!).
