Well, after a big break I am back.
We have been renovating our house and so the creating has been thrown on the back burner.
The last couple of weeks i have found a fantastic pattern from Sam Lamb. She has some beautiful and free vest patterns. Here is Miss2 modeling hers.

These here are my first socks. They were supposed to be Mermaidia - BUT for a sock and lace virgin i think i bit off more than i could chew. So after a few pattern repeats, I went plain. Sorry Christine - I really wanted to add to the projects on Ravelry!
Then of couse i needed to buy a cone of naked yarn from Vintage Purls to have a go at dyeing sock yarn... With varied results.
Here is an updated pic of the two other WIPs. Aren't they cute!?!
I dyed the above yarn from a taupe base, with Cake powder dyes. LOVE the intense colour that the powders give. Below is my WIP socks - I have used the seven of hearts DK heart lace panel, but on a 4 ply toe up sock pattern. Is knitting up really well.Well, hope to be back to update sooner this time!

I have been very slack at keeping up with this blog. Life has just exploded, and I am finding it hard to keep up with recording all my projects. BUT I have taken photos of most of them - so please bear with me as I write a mamoth post today.
First up - I bought this pattern off Ravelry a couple of months ago - Itty-bitty Bolero. A really nice, easy knit. A bit of a learning curve with the old dpns - BUT we got there in the end. Next time i think i will knit the sleeves flat and seam them.
I offered my skills to some friends with daughters..... Here are a bunch of skirts that i made.
This is my beautiful, big girl. We had some photos taken at my hubby's work, just before Christmas.........
........And me and the little one.
This was a handmade gift for my best friend, Heidi. The wee bag is for her knitting, a dishcloth and some hand dyed yarn for her to knit a hat for her wee man.
