Loved Knitting this, very quick easy knit! I hate hats as a rule but when I do the school run I'm sick of getting back with ear ache from the cold air so this seemed the perfect solution! Only took 2-3 evenings to knit and has been made from Krafty Koala hand dyed Aran weight on 5mm needles. Already planning a 2nd!

Forest Canopy Number One!

This was the last project of 2007 I finished. It was a long slog, I still have 2 more on the go! This actually was a trial run to see how I got on knitting lace. Verdict......Very pleased! So is my youngest daughter who has claimed it for herself :-) I knitted it in 4 ply wendy peterpan acrylic, I have blocked it again as a trial as I've never done any blocking either! Over all very pleased so onwards and upwards with number 2 and 3!

New Year.....New Plans.....

Life being what it is as a working married mum of 3 the crafting took a fair bit of a back burner. The kids are getting older and hopefully I'm getting a bit more time for me, my crafting and waffling!
My main aim is to complete some of my HUGE list of projects that I have on the go as well as work throu my mountains of stash. I am buying as little yarn as possible, there is plenty taking over the house lol.
Other than the knitting/crochet there is the general masses of stuff I need to clear out the house via ebay where possible and put a bit more effort into making and selling some stitch markers!
Wishing all you crafty bunch, and anyone else who reads my blog, a very happy and prosperous 2008!
