Oh la la!

Branching Out

I LOVE this colour! Knitting this has been an endurance test. It’s been knitted, ripped out, re-knitted, hurled across the room in anguish, and knitted some more. Only a few more repeats to go, but I don’t want to touch it because I’ve dropped a stitch somewhere in the last repeat and I don’t want to throw it again…


A scarf for my friend Matthew, who is my accomplice in History classes.

I’m taking part in the 6th DIY Kit Swap on Craftster, which is exciting – I’m sending two Intarsia kits and shall receive a lip-balm kit and a Kool-Aid dyeing kit. Eeep! Emily posted, asking if anyone would like to do a swap, and of couse I couldn’t resist! *excited*

Here I come, Knitting and Stitching Show 2006! This is SO exciting – there was a trip organised by my Textiles tacher to the Show last year, and I was too late getting my permission form in! But this year I’m going with my mum and it’s so exciting – all that yarn and fabric and buttons and beads and ribbon and fibre and…!

Sorry for the blog-moving and sporadic updates, I do come online regularly so I have no excuse for not blogging, even when I don’t have much crafting content!

Less than three months ’til Christmas, and my mum suddenly has a hankering for some quilted tablemats. She’s been reading too much Little Miss Meshell! When I get home from college, mum is always at the computer reading blogs! She never used to be this bad… And she now has a dedicated knitting time in the evening, whilst she watches her favouite TV show… I keep persuading her to get her own blog but she’s having none of it :p

    Oh I so want to go to the knitting and stitching show- can I justify the cost of entry and train journey in to London though??

    I am so jealous! Their is never any good shows like that here. lol, have fun 😀
    I am probably going to join the Newbie Swap on Craftster this month. I want to try one, and this sounds like a good idea. I was going to do the hoodie swap but I was late signing up -_-
    I can’t believe Christmas is coming up! I have to start Christmas gifts soon, only becuase I’m making absolutely everything.
    Oh dear, all of my comments always end up WAY long. Ah well, I will leave you with this: Lovely work on the scarf! I have been needing one and I have the prettiest maroon cotton. I should do something ‘fancy’ for once…

    LOL, oh that is so cool! *waves to Mrs Smurfpop* =) I can’t stop making the damn things, they are so easy and pretty! =P

    I love your branching out, the colour is gawwwwjus, I tried to make that but like yours, mine got hurled across the room many a time and then just got pulled out (err, not that there was much to pull) and discarded. Is that lifelines I see in the third pic? SMART idea, wish I knew what a lifeline was when I started mine, hehe. I really should have another go at it sometime because it is such a pretty pattern.

    I’ve missed your postings sweet pea! =) xox

    Love, love, love your branching out. Have fun at Ally Pally (lucky duck! I’m too broke to go, grrrrrr. God, it’s going to be dangerous when I have a credit card.)

    Do you fancy coming up to London for the craft bazaar I’m doing? Ah go on, go on, go on, go on, go on….

    xx nush

    I am knitting branching out. I finally figured it out, and then about five inches up, I totally messed up -_- Oh well, I guess doing it ten times makes it easier each time 😀

  6. Emily says :

    You are my new favorite person! I never would have thought of using those lifeline things. I have a whole load of scrap yarn that I can use. Thanks SO much for the suggestion 🙂
