Goodbye 2012. Goodbye Blogger :(

After what has been a rather rubbish year for me, I have decided that a fresh start and a fresh blog is needed. If anyone wants to follow my new blog, you can do so over by following the link below.

I hope you all have fantastic New Years Eves and wish you all the best in 2013.

Woolfest 2012!

Oh. My. Woolly. Word!
Woolfest. Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds! To a knitter anyway ;)

It is an hour's trip away from me and I'm ebrassed by the fact I've never been before tbh! It was amazing! The only "meh" thing was just how busy it was, the cafe was overloaded and we had to perch in a hallway to eat our lunch! Would you like to know what I bought? Of course you would ;)


I bought some lovely Gradient dyed yarn, looks lace weight, a brass-like shawl pin in the shape of a dragonfly and.... a drop spindle. Yes, I bought a drop spindle after all my protests that I wouldn't because I don't have time. I got 3 fibres in the kit and bought another 3 lots of fibre too. Ahem.
I don't have very good photographs of the colour because the rain has been so bloody horrid! We'll see tomorrow ;)


Here's some knitting/crochet to help tide you over!




Oh, I also tried my hand at some fimo buttons. Aren't they cute? Rather proud of my first attempt!

Woollies, woollies everywhere but not a single sheep!

I am still alive, I promise (I also realise that I seem to start a lot of blog posts like that!!) I've been a busy wee crafter :) Here's some recent WIPs!

Socks for me! (Yarn: Pixie Knits)

Teeny shurg for one of my twin neices (Yarn: Stylecraft aran)

100% wool yarn scrap blanket for Sea Monkey (Yarn: various donated by friends :) )

More work on the Sea Monkey's ripple blanket (Yarn: Woolcraft DK)

Fruitshoot bottle covers! (Yarn: Woolcraft DK) 

Matching back to school sets for Sea Monkey and my Goddaughter

Clips.... Lots. Of. Clips.

And more clips!

Scrappies (Yarn: Well... scraps!)

Boardies (Yarn: Customer's own)

And I've also been painting my Rogue Trader character. 
Sister Hospitaler Esallia Dominique, from the Order Of The Eternal Flame. 

*nerdgasm* I finished Faith and Fire (Rather nicely placed in the background there!) and I'm awaiting my copy of the second book in the series. Woot.


Wow, when I put it all like that, I can see why I haven't been updating the blog! o_0
