Etsy Update – Baby Gift Sets

Well, I’ve been quiet over here but it’s not because I haven’t been busy knitting! Brand new for Spring, I’ve been working on these little baby gift sets. The indecisive perfectionist in me (a terrible combination, right?) has made getting this finished a NIGHTMARE, but finally they are now available to order. Those. BOOTIES. *hearteyes* […]

FO – Mini Christmas Stockings

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll have seen me tweet about mini Christmas stockings. I’ve been thinking of making these for a while but as I’m not used to knitting socks and am quite the perfectionist, it took many many many attempts before I came up with a pattern that I was happy with. […]

August Scarves

Well life’s gone and done that thing again where itΒ all goes a bit tits up. My response to this has been to knit. A lot. My favourite online yarn shop shut down recently (just to clarify, this isn’t what’s gone tits up, but life sure does like to pile it on, right?) and so they […]

I love this time of year. It’s dark by 4.30pm, the weather is obnoxious and my feet are perma-cold – and yet it’s still my favourite time of year. Not least because I get motivated to knit again! My first big project of the winter was this *ahem* football-inspired scarf. Definitely not for me… But […]

Etsy!

I knew it. I knitted one hat and now I can’t stop. Aqua/Grey Superwash Beret Olive/Grey Superwash Beret Red/White Hearts Superwash Beret Can you tell that I’ve had exams recently…? And that I’ve been avoiding having to read all this…? Just a little light dissertation reading…! (~15 books there…) All available on Etsy. Speaking of […]

The finished product

Available here! Available here! I added the bows and think they look pretty, in an understated way. I didn’t want to overegg the pudding, as it were. I also started reading Captain Corelli’s Mandolin yesterday – I shall reserve judgement until I have read more! So far, I am intrigued. x

Mosaics

Mum likes to make mosaics from pictures she finds on Flickr, and so I decided to have a bash at it, using some of my Favourites on Etsy. An “eclectic” selection…! 1. 50’s style flocked dress (sold out) by petapledger 2. "Bleu Peacoque" hair clip by SweetGrassMill 3. Wrap shrug by malam 4. Butterfly knee […]

Magnets!

Heart-shaped polymer clay magnets These are listed in my Etsy shop. I enjoyed making these – I was faffing about at my desk today and saw a pot of magnets I’ve had sitting there for months, and started playing around with them. I really like how they’ve come out πŸ™‚ Hopefully I will have some […]

Pictures!

Coo-eee! I’ve mainly got pictures today πŸ™‚ Another bracelet in my shop πŸ™‚ And another! I had fun playing with different bead shapes for this one πŸ™‚ I got some heart and star shaped mini cookie cutters this week! πŸ˜€ A shot of Amanda Palmer at her gig on Wednesday night in London – amazing […]

Who needs love…

… When there’s Southern Comfort? I am having a manic Amanda Palmer sesh at the moment – I’m currently listening to her doing a live set on BBC Radio 6 (Hopefully it will be available to listen again online!) which is getting me VERY excited for seeing her on Wednesday at the Electric Ballroom in […]
