Yarn Talk


Hope you all have had a lovely Christmas, and Santa brought you all lots of goodies.

I'm having abit of a crisis, and a yearning. I need some new yarn for the new year. So I need some suggestions. Realistically, the yarn needs to be Double Knit and work on 4mm hooky. Need to have a yummy selection of colours. Needs to be machine washable.

What is it I hear you ask I wish to use this yummy new yarn for? Well, I decided to open a new shop on Etsy called "The Fantastical Faerie" > Etsy. I will be selling beautiful scarves, wristies, stitch markers, knitting needles. So, I need to find some wool for the crochetted goodies that I will supply on my shop.

Stick your lovely suggestions into a comment on here :)

Comfy feets

Heyy all!!!

Finished my comfy feets! Very comfy on my swollen feet for this chilly night.

My current work in progress. How colourful ;) I'm looking forward to it's completion.

This was a gift from a lady who owns a shop in Northampton. I gave her some gorgeous Snowcake soap as my random act of kindness. She came in today and gave me this gorgeous Christmas present to me, handmade by her. Whoever you are lovely lady - thank you so much. It really made my day <3 much love to you!!

I will love you all and leave you with the small snow flurry we had on Wednesday.

Have a lovely weekend! Xx

Morning all, it's very cold here in Northamptonshire at the moment. The temperatures have really plummeted!

I'm layered up and nearly ready for Christmas. I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying the chilly weather!!

Merry December!!

Is it December already? I can't believe how quickly this year has actually flown by.

Well nonetheless, we put our pretty Christmas tree up today when we got home from visiting my family. It was soooo slippy on the way down the hill to the bus, we skidded (me and his tallness) to the bus with Mum and Winnie.

So I take you want to see some photos? Really? Oh okay..





How pretty was that? I certainly do love Christmas!!

I brought some tulips last Thursday as a gift for myself, along with some Freesias and Carnations;

As you can tell from the last photos, we've had a little bit of snow in the Shire. Only about an inch, which is slowly melting in the below zero temperatures. Had to have the electric blanket on alot haha.

Either way, I hope you all have a lovely December! And I'll be *hopefully* posting some tutorials soon for those who wish to crochet the lefty way! x
