New blog – Slowly but Surely

So I’m still plugging away at She’s Electric. I spent a lot of time working on it over the weekend but there’s still a way to go on the colourwork Apologies for the badly lit pix, the nights are drawing in and the light had almost gone when I snapped these I’m just over the [...]

New Blog – In progress

Not a great amount to blog this week. The Lucky Cat earrings aren’t yet finished.   That’s them residing inside one of my jewellery finding drawers. I’ve capped them with little silver beads and am considering adding a clear crystal on top before I attach them to the ear hooks. Knittingwise I’ve got a few [...]

New Blog – Lucky Cats

I went to a craft supplies fair on Saturday with my friends Karen and Hannah. Sadly there were no stalls selling yarn but plenty were selling beads and I found a couple with fabric. The red is what feels like a poly cotton mix. It was £3 a meter and I picked up 3m for [...]

New Blog – Secret Hat and Sad Goodbyes

Remember my secret knitting? Well, it has transformed into this It’s the cat version of the Unbelievably Simple Baby Hat pattern by Laurene Hildebrandt Here’s a better photo of it. I showed it to colleagues at work who thought it looked like Hello Kitty This was a present for my friend Amy. Although it’s obviously not [...]

Slightly Delayed Making Monday Post…

I finished knitting the case for my HTC One X and, although I now I have a hard plastic protective case, I’m still very attached to its knitted counterpart so it’ll be staying in there for the time being. I’ll post the pattern later in the week. This weekend Doug and I went to the [...]

Gardening Season…

We’ve had some great weather this past weekend so we’ve been busy in the garden. Nothing there to really photograph just yet as much of what’s been done is clearing, mowing and weeding and it’s not all sorted. I can raise nettles and brambles without trying I’ll be planting veg and flower seeds in peat [...]

All Quiet on the Crafting Front…

Quite literally in fact because I’ve lost my voice. Occasionally I have a bit of a raspy whisper but that’s about it. Plus I’m trying to avoid speaking so that it can heal. I’m taking throat lozenges and lots of hot drinks to help it along too. This all stemmed from a nasty sore throat [...]

Making Monday – Flo-Jo Boutique

Doug, my other half, lives in Bristol so I visit the city quite a lot. There are tonnes of vintage style shops selling second hand clothes and crockery etc. or vintage influenced stuff  but one new store is very, very unique.  In fact I’d been waiting excitedly for weeks for it to open every since [...]

Not Much of a Making Monday…

…because I spent most of last week cleaning and tidying the house. I finally began the coordinating colour waistband on Saturday night but I had to rip it all out today because I’d made a mistake while reading the pattern.  I’m still not completely sure if I’ve got the first few rows right but we [...]

Making Monday – Productivity

After I finished the TDRC last week I thought I’d have lots of time to work on She’s Electric but I’ve been so busy that I’ve only just finished the second ball. I am, however, just a few rows away from the really interesting part of this cardi – the part where I add the [...]
