The hat scarf thingy!

The hat scarf thingy!

  Ever since I started knitting this for Faith it has been known as the hat scarf thingy! You see, it is a hat but it is also a scarf. I supposed it could be called a hooded scarf or maybe a harf or a scat… Anyway, whatever you want to call it, it is...

Makes of 2011

At the beginning of 2011 I set myself a goal of knitting from my rather large stash – aiming for 12 projects through the year. After I’d finished Christmas presents, I think I just about managed it (although I haven’t had a final count up). I also started a sewing course and have managed to...

Knitted clothes

My aim this year has been to finish 12 knitting projects using just yarn from my (rather large) stash and so far I’ve done pretty well. There are a few Christmas projects that I won’t show you yet as I know some of the recipients read my blog, but here are two things I have...

Easy leaves scarf

I have tried to be more organised this year and have already started my knitted Christmas gifts, although with the huge to do list I have just written, perhaps I should have started even earlier! But before I could start this I had an October full of birthdays and decided to knit a scarf for...
Knits to Give - review

Knits to Give – review

If you read my blog regularly then you may have noticed that I am a huge Debbie Bliss fan. Her designs are absolutely beautiful and her books are so gorgeous to the point where I will sit and read them at night time instead of a novel! So I always get excited when I am...
Faith's knitted top

Faith’s knitted top

I am very pleased with myself as I have finished my second knitted project of the year. I started knitting this little tank top for Faith at the end of last year but as it was my ‘car project’ (I knitted it in spare moments when I was waiting for Grace to come out of...
The Ultimate Book of Baby Knits - Debbie Bliss

The Ultimate Book of Baby Knits – Debbie Bliss

Last year I was lucky enough to review The Knitter’s Year by Debbie Bliss and I loved it. The book still sits by my bed and every so often I flick through the gorgeous pictures – I’ve even just cast on the peg bag ready to grace my washing line in summer. So there was...
Stash busting

Stash busting

Last year I made a huge effort to do more crafting, in particular knitting, crochet and sewing. I made a good start but didn’t get as much done as I hoped. However, over the past few years I have built up a hug stash of fabric and yarn and this is the year when I...

Makes of 2010

We had quite a crafty year last year, but this year I’m aiming to top it with lots more knitting, crochet, sewing and loads of crafts for the children. Keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming makes, but in the meantime, here are some of the things we made in 2010.
Knitting revealed!

Knitting revealed!

So before Christmas I posted this picture of my half finished knitting as I didn’t want to reveal what it was and spoil someone’s Christmas surprise. Several people had a go at guessing but no-one got it right. Now I can reveal that it was… … a pair of slippers for my Mum. They were...

Mug Cosy

As well as getting ready for Christmas, I have several family members who have their birthdays in December (very inconsiderate of them!) so I have birthday presents as well as Christmas presents to sort out. My mother in law’s birthday is Christmas Eve but¬†because¬†she is usually at work then, we go round and have a...
