Deck the halls…

I’ve started my Christmas making! So far I’ve started knitting a bear for Little One and making a pretty keepsake box for a friend. Here they are…. I know it’s not much but from little acorns….. I also went to a posh garden centre yesterday and explored their Christmas shop. After picking myself up off…

Oh baby it’s cowl outside

So, amazingly I finished my holiday project. Here’s my ribbon cowl finished off with wool felt covered buttons. I’m loving it!!!!!

Sari always seems the hardest word

This is turning into my holiday project. Thought you’d like a peek of my progress. It’s a well travelled project. I’ve knitted all over Brixham. I’m hoping to finish the main bit in the next day or so. Me! Finish!!! Also, a shot or two from the roof of the boat. I’m sitting up here…

Close knit

The ladies what knit have been very lovely recently. I’ve told you about Daniel, the little boy who has been one of Elder’s friends from birth. His parents have moved heaven and earth to raise almost half of the £54,000 they need to give him a potentially life-changing operation. Imagine having the chance of helping…

Drive on…

So, I’ve already mentioned the Downton Abbey Swap I took part in on Ravelry.  Well, my spoilee emailed this weekend to say she has received my little shoebox all the way in Maine.  She said she likes the goodies, phew!

Down at the old Bull and Bush…

Back to work tomorrow. I have been getting used to not being frazzled so am a little worried but on the other hand my lists have been going very well today so I have to have faith, don’t I? Anyway, on to more cheerful stuff. I’ve been clearing the decks so as to reduce stress…

Kaffe Society

The charity shop strikes again….this masterpiece has given me loads of ideas for 2012…. Bliss. I’ve a horrible cold so this shot of colour is just what I needed!! Update: oh God. I went back. 3 more books on Needlepoint incl Fassett’s tome, Glorious Needlepoint. I’m a danger to myself.

Yesssssss

Look! I finished something! A simple school scarf for Elder in his school colours. Made from Sirdar Big Softie with my fabulous illuminated knitting needles. Yep, they light up. Look. Daft but actually really quite handy. Made by knitlite I got these from Get Knitted in Bristol. I love ’em. Elder has gone to bed…
