B B B BUTTONS!!!

Just a very quick post today!! I’ve been away for longer than I had intended but I haven’t been slacking I promise! I’ve been waiting for some new buttons to arrive and they have YAY!

Strawberry!!

 

Blue and white polka dot!

All the above buttons are fabric covered and I can’t wait to use them 😀

Multi coloured stars!

I love stars so I had to have these bad boys 😀 I don’t plan to use these as buttons though as they are pretty small and making button holes is not my strong point haha!!

Thats it really! Hopefully I will have some new projects using my new buttons to show you very soon!! I have some media cases, phone covers etc up my sleeve and some new brooches hopefully!!

Have a good weekend everyone!!

Knitting a sweater is fun to do!

Hey everyone 🙂

So as some of you may know I’ve started knitting myself a sweater from a book I received as a Christmas present!! It seems to be going pretty well at the moment which is always nice 😛

It's getting looooong!

This is the whole length including the rib at the bottom! It’s actually longer than I thought it was going to be so god knows if it will fit haha! It could end up as a dress haha!!

Shaping the arm hole!

I’ve even managed to start shaping the arm holes…..I always find this is the hard bit!! Anything that needs shaping I usually shape wrong!! All in all it seems to be successful!! I’m not a very disciplined knitter as I just want it to be finished as soon as possible 😛

In other news I’ve started some new media covers which I’m  really pleased with!! I’m hoping to get them finished soon! It’s always the photo taking bit that gets me though! I have to wait for a really sunny day…..and even then my photos always seem to look dark! I’m not sure where I’m going wrong :-S

Media cover!

Here is a sneak peek at the first one 😉 I will be listing it in SnowBunnysKnits as soon as I can!! Go check it out and let me know what you think!!

Progress, sweet sweet progress!

Hello everyone!!

So on Tuesday I did one of my favourite things WOOL SHOPPING!! YAY! I bought the wool I needed to complete my sweater from my “knitting vintage” book! I went in with every intention of getting a nice pastel colour………

Me and my Teal wool!

………yes I do realise teal isn’t pastel coloured 😛 I’m not good at choosing pastel colours as I prefer bright and colourful ones!! I genuinely did try! Well at least it’s not red for a change haha!! The pattern seems to be quite easy at the moment but then again I haven’t got to the arm holes or anything yet!!

Progress so far!

I’ve completed the ribbing at the bottom and started the main bit of the jumper!! I bought cheap wool since it’s my first try……I can see it all going wrong at some point 😛 I also think i may have picked the wrong size as this looks very small!! Oh well it’s all good practice I guess!!

I also managed to complete some items for my little Etsy shop! It’s been a while so I’m quite pleased! Just have to do the worst part now………setting up the listing *groan* haha!

Bow Mug Hug!

Leaf Mug Hug!

As you can see I’m not very good at taking photos…..they always end up too dark!! I’m still toying with the idea of a light box of some sort to help me out!!

 

Knitting Vintage!

Hello everyone 🙂

So far my January has been like every other January I’ve ever had……well except maybe the one when I was 21 and me and my bestie went to Barcelona for a week, that was pretty amazing 😛 Anyway I know we are only 7 days in so I can’t really start complaining!! I hope you have all had a wonderful start to your years!!

So for Christmas I was given this really lovely book called Knitting Vintage. I was pretty pleased with it as no one ever buys me craft stuff for Christmas and this was something I’d never even considered before!!

Knitting Vintage.

Its full of knits from the 1920’s right up to the 1980’s.  It has all the usual stuff like leg warmers, tank tops, twin sets and even patterns for dresses!! There are a couple of garments I would never even consider wearing but some of them I actually would, which is exciting 😀 So I spent today trying to decide what would be best to make!! The biggest most complicated pattern I’ve ever made was a babies cardigan so this time I want to branch out and make myself something like a cardigan or a jumper!!

I have it down to two patterns. A Breton style stripe jumper and a little round neck jumper!! I don’t have pictures of the patterns at the moment but I will take some soon so you can all see!! I think the round neck jumper is winning at the moment……this could be because the one in the book is knitted in red wool and I REALLY like red but I am going to try to knit it in a completely different colour!!

In crafting news, I have a week off from work so I am planning to make as many little knitty things for my shop as is humanly possible! I am also determined to get GOOD pictures of them and somehow magically spread the word of my little shop……hmmmmmm 😛

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

*I must apologise for the lack of s[elling and grammar in this post…the spellcheck isn’t working :-S eeeeeek!!

I’m not really into the whole New Years thing! I used to be as a teenager but as i’ve gotten older it’s become less and less of an event!  That’s not to say i don’t wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR, because i genuinely really do hope that everyone has a really lovely year 🙂

I don’t bother making New Years Resolutions either! I NEVER stuck to them and then i would just feel like a failure by the time i got to the end of the year!! I tried making simple ones but they don’t really seem like its worth it to me!! Of course i need to be more healthy and pro-active but I think of that as an everyday thing I should just do, of that makes sense?? haha!! I always like to know what everyone else has decided to do though!! And if I can help in anyway then i will!!

Anyway I had a really nice Christmas which was fairly surprising to me since my Dad wasn’t here to enjoy it with me! It was a very simple affair with the people i love most in the world but it was enough for me!! I got some lovely presents too!!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree......

This is the bottom of our little tree! We really need to get one of those skirt things or a bucket or something haha!!

Owl Cushion and stickers!

My friend Katie in work got me these!! I LOVE this cushion he is so amzing 😀 Who doesn’t love owls?? haha!

I can’t wait to see if we can get this to grow, it’s going to be so cool 😀 It has little lights on and everything!! I have a couple more things that i took pictures of after i uploaded these pictures but this is the bulk of it! Ah i’m so lucky!!

Anyway i’m really sorry that this post was quite picture heavy but ah well it is Christmas 😉 Anyway hope you all had a lovely NYE and that the Year to come is everything you hope for!! I am now off to do some online sale shopping….OH YESSSSSSS!!
