I have been given the go-ahead to purchase yarn for the coat in my previous post. Now I just need to choose colours. And maybe finish a couple of WIPs off …

New Love … Or Obsession …

Posted By on March 5, 2011

I have found something new to obsess about. Oh my goodness!!

On ravelry, someone linked to the Eclectic Gipsyland blog. And it is full of inspiration. However, this post really caught my eye. Look at this fantastic coat 😀

I wonder if I could wing it. With some yummy stylecraft. Hrm …. :/

Argh …

“… big head, Big Head, BIG HEAD.”

Only in this case it’s actually small head 😐

(Little Tin Bird, I’m looking at you here!

What do you do when life throws you a wobbler?

… you knit of course!

My dad is rather ill at the moment so I have made him a monster. I think he liked it. It certainly brought a smile to his face. It is Maddox by the wonderful Rebecca Danger.

Currently away helping mum but will be back soon! xx

Just a Quickie

Life has been very hectic – lots of things happening, very few are good. I am going away tomorrow for a couple of weeks and won’t be onlline much during that time.

I have plenty to show you when I get back, including 2 FOs, one being a rather stripe-tastic blanket, which I love love love. I also have monsters on the go, which I love too.

Please cross your fingers for plain sailing the next few weeks. We need it.

What a Week

Posted By on February 7, 2011

What do you do when you have the week from hell?

That’s right – you buy yarn, patterns and nearly finish another project.

I am on the border of my granny stripe and I have yummy yarn for a couple of other projects. Yay!

Photos this week. Hopefully.

Blanket Musings …

Posted By on January 26, 2011

I have been thinking through my current blankie situation. I have my mahoosive granny stripe blanket on the go and a summer garden blanket. Now, the summer garden was going to be a double sized blanket but I have decided against that now. Well, the granny stripe is going to be bigger than king sized so I have decided that the my summer garden blankie will be a Niamhy blankie. She’s going to need proper bedding soon so I will make it for her bed. Which means, I have enough squares made 😀 So now I need to go round them once more so that I can join them and then add a border. How exciting.

It’s going to be a nice, cosy, woolly blankie for her. I do love it.

Oh, and I have completed 81 stripes on my granny stripe. Score 😀

So many ideas …

Do you ever have that problem?

I have completed about 50 stripes. How exciting! I am loving this blankie 😀

FO: Pinboard

Posted By on January 12, 2011

Woohoo! This is my first FO of 2011!

Yes, I know, it’s not knitting or crochet or anything fibre-y but in my resolutions I didn’t stipulate that it would be. It is, in fact, a pinboard!

Using Kirstie Allsopp’s fantastic book Kirstie’s Homemade Home, which I received for Christmas, I made this fab pinboard. It was really simple and took an hour or so last night. It was simply cutting a piece of fabby fabric to the size of the cork, using craft PVA to stick it down and then putting on some ribbon how you wanted it. Easy as pie. But looks great in my recently organised kitchen 😀

I would’ve had another FO to show you, but needed my ruler and the ruler fairies seem to have stolen it. So, instead I shall show you a picture of my beautiful daughter from the weekend.
