Hello again!

It's been awhile since I wrote my last blog post. Life sometimes seems to get in the way, and when I get stressed about trying to keep up my blog alongside everything else I let it slide for a bit. Funnily enough this always seems to happen around winter, I think I'm a fair weather blogger.

Still its about time I got myself on her more often. Last year was the year of the blankets, I crocheted 8 full sized ones in the end. This year I've decided is going to be the year of the socks, and not just any socks either, I'm writing my own patterns for these. The first is nearly ready, the second is halfway there, the third is roughly in my head and the fourth is a glimmering of an idea.

I want to play with colour and texture this year, try out some new techniques and create some great patterns along the way. So keep any eye out and hopefully my first pattern in awhile will be announced soon.

Mollie makes

I've recently taken out a subscription to Mollie Makes magazine and this is my first issue. I've already started the knitting pattern which has to be a good thing.

A dreamcatcher and a bowl

The kits from the latest Craft Creatives box all made up. I think the bowl will sit next to my sewing machine and hold the spare sewing machine feet

Its all a bit quiet on here at the moment due to some IT issues. Just bear with me and things will get back to normal soon.
