mitterns and more



so this week i have been knitting




ive made a cardigan for my little girl. it was knitted on super chunky wool so it only took acouple of hours to knit up.






then i made some mitterns for myself for the winter time,


they are made with a new type of wool ive found. its knits up as if you are working on a fairisle pattern, its very pretty and very effective.


ohh and i will have lovely warm hands in the winter!

needle felted jewlery




i made these today


they are rolled up peices of felt that are then needle felted to help them stick togeather


im really pleased with them but in particular the red and black ones!


im slowly learning that craft can be anything made with everything!








i like to watch Kirstys homemade home on channel four.




it has really gave me some inspiration.
