Brrr!! Winter is here!

It takes me long enough to post! Here's a little update of what I have been up to!

Due to poor quality light, the pictures may not be brilliant!

I've started working on my first pattern called "By Dusk" which will be a knitted blanket, made entirely on 8mm needles. So will be beautifully warm :)

I'm also working on a set of Fetching's for myself in Stylecraft Twirl "Cherry Twirl"; got one complete, added in another lot of cables at the bottom and top so they'll stay on my hands abit easier!!

Continuing on my Christmas list, I'm using Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake (Shade:0631) and Patons Pompero (Shade:35 Hollyhock) to make Paul's cousin a Kitty Eared Winter Hat. How cute. I'll be creating a pattern for that too in the come few weeks.

Paul's winter gift is some I Phone Socks! He has requested that I make him some cosies to use up my ever expanding yarn stash. So that will be his smaller gift.

Mum for Christmas will be getting the blanket once it is finished :) So hopefully some more photos once it is complete!!

Also one last thing. I have a new member of my fibre family. Her name is Joselyn, and she is an Ashford Kiwi Spinning Wheel <3 She was a pain in the backside to put together.

So far I've been plying my machine ball cones together to make some meaty yarns.

So that is the fruits of my labour! Keep checking back as the patterns may actually start getting written!!
