November already. How did that happen? I had grand plans of making loads of handmade Christmas gifts, but seeing as it takes me around a month to finish anything, I guess I’ll be doing the majority of my Christmas shopping on amazon. Again. I have managed to finish a few pieces since my last blog… Continue reading Finished Works October 2017
I have a question: how many weeks/months need to go by before you have to reference that you haven’t written anything in a while? A week, a month? I honestly don’t want to start every post with “sorry I’ve not written in a while”. But I think I need to acknowledge this one as it… Continue reading What do you mean it’s been 4 months?!
I hope that this post finds people well. Over in my little corner of the world, things have been quite busy. My little boy turned one and recently started walking – first shoes bought yesterday! – so I am preparing myself for mayhem ahead. We have been having some work done on our house, replacing… Continue reading Can I wear fox mittens too?
Hats really are one of my favourite things to make – both for myself and other people. I think it’s because they are quick to do, so I get that wonderful ‘ah, finished’ feeling before I have the chance to get distracted and move on to something else. I am ashamed to say I don’t… Continue reading Finished Work October 2016: Another Hat!
I am not quite sure how 2 months has passed since my last post Loss, but it would seem we are in September and my wee blog has been woefully neglected. But whilst my digital life has been quiet, my actual life has been hectic to say the least. As you can imagine, we are… Continue reading Hello again.
After doing relatively little on the cable jumper over my holiday, I have been on a bit of a roll and have managed to complete the back (pic below). This is due in no small part to the fact my son is now regularly napping. Every day! So whilst I should be doing some housework,… Continue reading ‘The Jumper’ continued…
We had a lovely holiday in Spain (although not without drama. More on that later). As predicted, I didn’t get anywhere near as much knitting done as I had planned. I took 15 balls of yarn with me to work on my husband’s jumper. I used one. That’s right, one. When I was packing I think… Continue reading Work in Progress June 2016 (plus a little bit of drama)
I managed to finish my hat over the Easter weekend. It’s called the Mathings Hat by SL McDonald and you can find a link to the pattern HERE. It’s one of those patterns that looks a lot more complicated to do than it actually is; I really like how it has turned out, particularly the crown.… Continue reading Finished Mathings Hat March 2016
I have a couple of projects on the go at the moment. Well I have more than a couple but some of them I haven’t worked on for so long that I’ve actually forgotten about them. I don’t know about anyone else but I always think it’s a bit of a treat to go through your… Continue reading Works in Progress March 2016
I am still working away on the jumper for my husband, but in the interim I whipped up this hat for my friend’s 2 year old son. I wanted something that was reasonably quick to do as I don’t get a huge amount of time to knit or crochet at the moment. I also wanted… Continue reading Finished Work March 2016: Hamilton Crochet Hat
