Fabric Houses

I was in Bath this weekend for my friend Helen’s Hen do. It was a crafty affair with a jewellery making session at The Makery followed by a little shopping. First in the patchwork shop I picked up a half meter piece of this great house fabric. It’s going to become either a bag, a [...]

Just about to cast off…

…the first sock. Will cast on for its mate tonight. Hope to have a pair by the end of the week. …the first sock. Will cast on for its mate tonight. Hope to have a pair by the end of the week.

Quick Sock Update…

…because, yes. I’d forgotten about last week’s decision to try and blog on a Monday. So here’s my sock a week later. Have just been doing a little while I watch Bones – currently on season two. I’m now on the heel flap. Would have finished the flap yesterday had I not made a mistake [...]

Plain Vanilla Socks…

…and yet I never get bored of knitting them. Started knitting on the weekend using my usual toe up pattern and some Lang Jawoll Magic in shade 6475. I’m knitting it on my new Hya Hya 2.5mm circs that I bought in Lacis during my trip to Berkeley and San Francisco last month. I also [...]

Look what came in the post…

…from France yesterday. It’s the Robe Reglisse dress pattern from Deer And Doe. I’ve never used one of their patterns before but the design is similar to a lot of the dresses I wear so if it works out it’ll get a lot of use. It’s been quite a while since I’ve sewn anything. Like [...]

Knit All the Things…ish

Remember Jabba?   Here he is installed on Eric’s sofa. He takes most of it up! I had all of these grand plans for the Christmas break. I was going to knit all the things and read and watch all the things, too. Of course the reality is that I was only able to knit, [...]

How I squished Jabba the Hutt under my sewing machine…

…and he only clogged the feed dogs once! If you own Bonnie Burton’s “Star Wars Craft Book” then you’ll be familiar with the Jabba the Hutt Body Pillow. A few months ago I showed the book to my boyfriend and he loved the Jabba pattern so I said I’d make it for him for Christmas. [...]

The End of the One Year Blogging Challenge plus 11 years of SpaceCraft…

So, this time last year I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Why? Well, because my blogging had pretty much dried up. The last few years had come and gone with only a few posts to show for them. So to herald the eleventh year of this blog – yes, that’s right eleven [...]

Snow snooze

Very quick post today as unfortunately I’m not well at the moment. Hence the absence of crafty activities to document. You might have heard that we had a lot of snow in South Wales on Friday. I’m not a big fan of snow and neither is Emma. So here’s a pic of Emma disliking the [...]

Something to Keep the Cold Out…

Sometimes I take on too much. In this instance it was decorating & trying to take part in the 30 minute challenge. No sewing has happened this week. Not a jot. Not even a pattern cut out.   But I have finished one thing. My owl hat modelled by the lovely Nefertiti And a close [...]
