On the go...

I'm still knitting this cute little dress for baby Laney - the wool is turning out to be very pretty don't you think!

Thought I'd also share a purchase I made just for me! Yep, after years of thinking about it, I decided to splurge & buy myself some interchangeable knitting needles. I am so glad I did, not only are they pretty, they have a nice 'grip' to the needles that holds the yarn nicely without being too smooth or rough. I'm also currently using the extra circular wires & end tabs as a stitch holder (for one side of the bodice) - totally fab - why didn't I get one sooner!
If you want to get one too, you can get a similar set from here!

Do you have a similar set of circular knitting needles too - did you buy them yourself or were they gifted (lucky you!).  AND have you seen the interchangeable crochet hooks - I don't understand them, why would they need to be interchangeable???

How about a knit-a-long?

Would you like to pick up your knitting sticks with me & join along with an KAL (knit-a-long)?The project is for a very pretty wrap, not a cowl (I'm sick of every KAL either being a cowl, shawl or socks!) and it starts on Valentines Day.

Bird-poop Bunting!

Social media is a wonderful thing, especially if you are a crafter - if you want an opinion asap, just post a piccie & ask a question then voila, instant feedback!

Use What You Have

I'm not into the whole New Years Resolution thing, I don't try to make myself promises that I know I won't keep but I do use the start of a new year as a way to look at my life and look to see if I am happy with the way things are or is there something I want to focus on.
Lately I've been thinking about excesses, expectations, evaluations & using what you have.
