I love Halloween, each year it comes around and demands that you become the Stephen Hawking of the crafting world. On this years list are some My Little Pony wings & ears and two sets of fairy wings, one for me, one for the dog. Now I just need to work out how on earth I’m going to make them lol. I suppose when in doubt, resort to glue
Works in progress:
Hediye by Ysolda Teague
Morticia by Boo Knits
Lecchi Crochet Blanket by Amanda Perkins
Als’ Baggy Striped Jumper by me!
Wee Willy Winkie ever so slightly wonky higgledy-piggledy in a goldfish bowl from hand dyed/spun yarn pilfered from another project partially felted with an added pom-pom pendulum of doom hat, also by me!
Wingspan by Maylin Tri’coterie Designs
Yarns (you may need to be signed in to Ravelry for the yarn links to work, sorry):
All of the above with 1% minimum added dog hair courtesy of Khloe.
I hope you enjoyed the episode, feel free to get in touch, let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to incorporate/talk about in next weeks episode.
See you next week
I’ve been spending my pennies again. Just ordered a book of lace stitch patterns from Amazon. Curse you Morticia by Boo Knits… what have you started lol.
I had just started dipping my toe in the blogging pool last year when I ended up taking break from crafting to work on my best friends’ wedding dress and my wedding outfit (the wedding was steampunk themed and it was awesome, but it was a lot of work). During the process I had a lot of time to think about my blogging future and came to the conclusion that if I’m going to do it, then I want to throw myself into it properly. At the time, I’d only really been posting on a monthly basis as a way of tracking my wip’s and fo’s and meanwhile talking my husbands’ ears off constantly about all things yarny.
Eventually, with the wedding over, I was mulling over what to about my slumbering blog. Al suggested (albeit with an edge of desperation) that if I had so much to say, I should really be saying it to people who actually know what I’m rambling on about. In hindsight I think what he wanted to say was “it’s been twenty years. Tell it to someone who gives a sh**”, but he’s way to polite to tell it how it is 😛
Inspired by fab’ YouTube videos such as Come Knit With Us, Dancing Geek Podcast, Minerva Turkey knits, Little Bobbins Knits, Bakery Bears Podcast, Knit All The Things Podcast, I could go on but I’m sure everyone I watch will get a mention at some point , it’s also been a fancy of mine to have my own vlog. So I figured in for a penny, in for a pound, I’ll give it a go.
I have to warn you, I’m no expert, so don’t expect an enlightening experience. In fact, you might want to say a little prayer that I make any sense at all, lol. But if you’re interested in my crazed ramblings or what I’m up to then have a watch, a read, or you can just ask me!
I’m a little nervous about the whole venture, I haven’t really done much blogging, hell, I’ve never even kept a journal and I’ve always been rather proud of my camera dodging prowess, but even if all this only results in finding a handful of people to connect with, it’ll be worth it.
So… please bear with me while I find my feet. Feel free to make suggestions, leave me comments, send me a message or simply add me to your friends. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and getting involved a lot more with the crafting community, life’s too short to only share my thoughts with a bloke who thinks a yarn over means you’ve run out of wool.
