Dad

Hello everyone! I have been neglecting this Blog a bit of late as i’m still trying to decide if I should make a new knotty one…ah decisions decisions! At the moment i’m leaning towards yes, so I just need to sort everything out before I make the big move!

Today is Fathers Day here in the Uk, I wrote a post on my other Blog about my amazing Dad (My Dad), if you would like to read it then please feel free! You can also see other bits and bobs I’ve been up to recently!!

So other than that there isn’t too much to report! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and please bare with me whilst I make the move from here to wherever I end up!! Thank you all for your time!

I shall leave you with some photos of my Dad 🙂

Dad and Me!

A not very crafy post!

Hello one and all 🙂

I’ve mainly been working on knitting cardigan’s for my cousin’s little boy’s Teddy bears! I have no clue if that sentence is grammatically correct but you get the picture 😉 Anyway i’m almost done with them now! They just need to be sewn together and posted all the way to Switzerland!! I still haven’t quite finished the baby blanket but that’s because of a lot of fiddly sewing!!

I don’t know if any of you saw on the news about the Sea Odyssey spectacular that was in Liverpool a couple of weeks a go? It was based on a true story about the Titanic! It involved GIANT mechanical robot type things walking around Liverpool to music……..i realise how mad this makes me sound but I have proof…….

Can you see it? It probably doesn’t look that big yet……..

ImageThis bad boy is about 50ft tall!! You really don’t get a sense of how big it is until you see it in real life!! It walked for miles all around Liverpool! I only got to see a tiny bit of it as it walked past my street!! There was also a girl giant who was about 20ft tall and a dog too! The event ran over 3 days and the giants had beds to sleep in and everything! The man giant was trying to find the girl giant and in the end they did! They sailed off together!! The story is quite complicated but if you google Liverpool Sea Odysey I’m sure it will explain better than I can 😛

These photos are taken from my local park! I nearly didn’t go and see it but I’m glad I did now 🙂 It was nice to see something like this outside of the City Center!!

And here is a photo of a nice Blossom tree as the giant says good bye 🙂

Well that is all for now! I hope you are all doing well!!

Knitting, painting, drawing, planting, cross stitching……..

Hello everyone 🙂

This may be the shortest post in the history of my posts 😛 I’ve been swamped in work and trying to fit in my millions of knitting projects (ok 3!) whilst also trying to draw and paint more, finish my lovely cross stitch and also sort out our backyard so we have a nice space for the summer!!

The knitting projects are going ok but slower than I had planned!! I’ve been trying to knit a bunny (photos to follow in the next post), I thought it would only take me a couple of days but I’ve still got its arms and ears to do……and don’t even start me on the face!! I have a baby blanket to complete but I still have a couple of months to do that so pphheeewwww!! Then my cousins boys are after clothes for their Teddy Bears! I’ve still got a cardigan to do……it took me ages to find one that would (hopefully) fit!!

The planting will be fun when we get going! So far we have bought Gladioli, lilies, red-hot pokers, dahlias and some other pretty flowers 🙂 Oh and I have some potatoes to put in the potato grow bag my mum got me!! My faves are the red-hot pokers.

Aren’t they lovely? I can#t wait until they grow!!I will be taking lots of photos of their progress 😀

So there we go! Take care and have a lovely week!!

Time for a change?

Hello my dears!

I’m sorry I’ve been away so long! We have had a lot of people off on holiday in work so I’ve been up to my eye balls in overtime! Then me and my partner decided to start decorating our house.  We bought it 6 months a go so I think it’s about time we did something! There will be photos to follow 🙂 It hasn’t been as easy as we though for various reasons but we will get there in the end! I have to admit I haven’t picked up my knitting needles in a while! I’m not sure what is up with me really! I will get back in to it this week though!!

Anyway this post is mainly to report on the fact that I’m thinking about opening a shop on Big Cartel.  I have no clue if this is a good idea but their starter package is free so it may be worth a try! You can only add 5 items and one picture of each item but considering the fact that I don’t seem to get that many sales I don’t see this being a problem!! Have any of you ever used Big cartel or have any opinions on it? I feel like I have to give it a try! Although I never expected Snow Bunnys Knits to be a huge success and a global brand I was hoping for better sales than I do have! I feel like I’m wasting my time but I REALLY want it to take off.  I suppose most people in my position go through this sort of thing……I’ll be honest though its starting to get me down a bit!

Oh and on the cross stitch front, I went with a smaller image…..mainly because I wanted it now and it was cheaper :-p I have very little patience in this sort of situation!!

This is the one I chose in the end! I CAN NOT wait for her to arrive from amazon!! I will deffo be posting update posts about this bad boy!! I can see this being a long-term project!

Anyway I hope you are all looking forward to the coming week! See you again soon!!

A tale of two hats!

So I have been commissioned to knit two little hats! Not just any old hats though, hats for Teddy Bears 😀 So cute!! I was originally going to do a santa style hat but then I found some very cute patterns that I really wanted to try so I asked if this would be ok and the answer was yes!!

The first hat is a normal little bobble style hat (except it doesn’t have a bobble on it at the moment!!) and the second one is an ear flap hat! I’m not sure if they have a special name…..kind of like hunters hats maybe??

 

What do you think of my models? I couldn’t find anything quickly so meet Cactuar (of Final Fantasy fame) and Totoro!! I think they look quite cute!! I really hope these hats are ok! I’ve already made jumpers for these Teddy Bears and next on my list are little coat type things 😀 Best dressed Teddies ever 😀

I’m also working on a baby blanket for a friend of mine!! She doesn’t know if it’s a boy or a girl as the baby had its legs crossed at the scan so I didn’t want a colour that swung too much either way!! I also didn’t want anything too safe or neutral as that really wouldn’t be my friends thing……she once had leopard print hair!!

Ta-dah!! Look at this bad boy!! I LOVE this and I know my friend will too 😀 I can’t wait to see what it looks like when I’m done!!

Anyway hope you have all had a lovely week so far!!!
