Cath Kidson Pillow!


I hope you all had and are having a fantastic Christmas. For Christmas I made my cousin a beautiful cushion. It was made out of gorgeous Cath Kidson ballerina fabric and pink pretty spotty fabric on the back with cute little pom poms around the edge. She loves ballet and is very good at it, so it was like it was made for her!!! She loved it and she couldn't believe that I made it !!!!!!!
hope you have a great rest of christmas and enjoy the amazing weather!!!!!!
Merry christmas and a happy new year !!
love from Maisie xxxxxxxx

Cable pullover

I have been busy knitting a cable pullover, which has been dragging on for ages now, as I abandoned it ages ago to make all the baubles for the christmas fair. I have knitted the first half and it's all going well, apart from I have knitted the button hole wonky (ooops!), but Maisie said to just say that it's part of the design. Hopefully nobody should notice!! I was tempted to undo it but that would undoing around half of it and at the pace I am going this is not an option! Anyway, I have already casted off, so it's a bit late now!
I haven't started the other side yet as I have so many projects on the go, but at least I have done half of it!

New Swedish Wool!

For christmas I got a really nice bag full of swedish wool. They all look very lovely and feel AMAZING, but my favourite is a ball with loads of different colours on it which creates stripes for a baby hat. It doesn't come with a pattern but I am sure that I can work something out with the picture! I hope you had a great christmas and have a happy new year!

Finished Already!

I have finished the snood and I am really surprised that I have finished it so quickly as I never finish projects early! I thought that it would take a lot longer but it is looking really lovely. I really love the colour. I think that my grandma will really like it too. The snood is not sewn up yet because it is such thick wool so cannot fit through the eye of my sewing up needle but I am determind to get it through! I hope you like it. Merry Christmas!
P.S Arne and Carlos liked our blog! Yippee!!!


Love heart Cushion!

Yesterday I started a new project as a christmas present. Unfortunately, I can't tell you who it is for as it is a secret but in my first post after christmas I'll tell you! The cushion is going quite slowly as I was watching a christmas movie while doing it but I have done around fifteen rows in an hour so still not to bad, although I would have liked to go a bit quicker as it only 62 stitches. My cushion is made from a book from rowan winter warmers and is knitted in rowan lima. I had so much rowan lima because earlier on this year I thought I was going to do something in rowan lima and there was a sale on  in my local knitting and sewing shop so I bought lots of it, so it is nice to use something. If I was not using right it would still be sitting in a cupboard somewhere so I might as well use it. It is looking really nice but it is quite loose so had to do some surgery on the first few rows! Have a lovely christmas. Only a week to go!

Another snood!

My grandma has requested a snood and even though I haven't started yet I am sure I will get it finished by friday. That is a challenge! Here is the nice colour that I have chosen. Merry christmas!

Simply knitting!

Last weekend we got a comment from someone who said that she had just seen our blog in simply knitting, which is a knitting magazine (I think the title gives it away!). She also offered me a free pattern from her website called Slightly Sheepish! How nice is that! We didn't know we were in another magazine so we were very excited! We are on page 76 in a little section on blogs that they like and we were there! Yippee! Have a nice weekend.

The christmas fair is over!

I can't believe that it is all over! All our work that has gone into it, all my 143 hours of knitting! It couldn't of gone better though! All of my 31 baubles sold apart from 1. Maisie sold all of her 8 pieces of christmas bunting and 2 of her normal buntings. Although Maisie's work is over it's not all over for me as I have 2 orders still to do! I thought that it would be horrible letting all my work go, but actually it feels like a weight's off my shoulders! I hope you have a nice rest of your weekend!
