Some knitting & not knitting!

November 14th, 2007

Firstly, today i bought….

A lady at work advertised them on the intranet noticeboard and I spotted the ad yesterday and went to buy them today :) A bargain at £8!

Secondly I thought I’d a post a few photo’s of what I’ve been making lately. I’m still working on the sock, and I’m finishing off the scarf to match the little hat posted a while ago. I bought some huge knitting needles a few weeks ago and thought I’d have a go at knitting with quite a thin yarn so I used some of that fashion “eyelash” yarn and made this little bag which we used to put Chris’ mum’s birthday present in (she seemed to like it!)

Now for some non knitting craft. During one lunch hour a few weeks ago I went to The Works to buy some cookery/cocktail books and spotted a “make your own Christmas cards” set, it was a couple of quid so I thought I’d give it a go. I’ve only made these two so far (and couldn’t get the right lighting to take a good pic)..

And that’s it for today!

Welcome….

Hello!

November 7th, 2007

I’m back online! Our broadband got connected today so I can start blogging again and try and catch up on everything I’ve missed over the past few weeks.

So I’m now down in Essex, the move went well and we’re almost sorted and kitted out :) I’ve been knitting quite a lot (will post some pics at the weekend) and I’ve joined the local Stitch N’ Bitch group which is cool, a great way to make some new friends (everyone there is lovely).

Also having the internet back means I can buy supplies and books online again now :) yay!
