I really hope you had a great Christmas. I did!!! This will be a short post as I am going to the doctors soon as I have a bad cough. I will post a picture of the final affect!! I got some lovely wool in my stocking ( rowan alpaca chunky).

Christmas baubles

I have been knitting baubles like crazy and have made six already! That is why I have not posted anything for a while. I have been making one a day! One of my favourite ones are a eight petal rose and a three colour ball made with a beautiful petrol greeney bluey as well as. My mum gave it away as a present and it looks great on her tree. I might just have to make another one! My mum's friend is crocheting the hooks as I can not crochet- I don't even have a crochet hook! They will look great on a small tree or in a glass bowl on my table at Christmas! I will post a picture tomorrow when I have got them all back ready to hang on the tree!!!!!!
Have a merry Christmas!!!

A christmas reindeer!!!

It took forever but I have finally worked out how to knit with 5 double pointed needles! Yippeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am making a beautiful reindeer. I am really proud of it. The wool is amazing to knit with as well as being in gorgeous colours. I started my first one last night and am more than half way already!! I might even finish it today as have a long drive up to London. I will keep you posted.

Intense fair Ilse!

Over the last week I have been knitting like crazy as I really want to finish my christmas stocking in time for christmas! At least I don't have to do two sides because if I did I doubt it would be done for next christmas! I have never done fair Ilse before and am starting to get the hang of it! Any tips???? There is a little mistake on one side, but I will just turn it round and hope that Santa doesn't notice!! I hope you like it!!
P.S am still waiting for that wool!

Santa Claus is coming to town

happy first day of advent, Ho! Ho! Ho!
This is our advent doll bursting at the seams with goodies! We didn't make it though. But this week i've been busy making some christmas bunting, which is now hanging up on the stair way!
I used some Pom Poms for the top of it, which I'm really pleased with.
Not sure what my next project is yet, any suggestions?
