This was left by Gwynne.....Lovely and generous giveaway, thank you for the opportunity to enter xx
Can you email me with your full name and postal address @ email@example.com and I'll get your yarn kit in the post asap :-)
I'm already looking forward to seeing what you make with the gorgeous Cotton 8!
Ah...if only had enough yarn to share with you all!
A huge thank you to all who entered and visited my new Facebook page. I'm very sure I'll have another giveaway in the future so keep checking ;-)
As I said earlier, I've had a busy time on the hooky front.
I've got 3 large projects on the go at the minute and I really just wanted to make something that was straightforward and quick! I chose 2 things as I couldn't quite make my mind up!!!
First was the gorgeous Nordic Shawl designed by Annette from My Rose Valley.
I've had this on my "to-do" list ever since I first saw it.
So I delved into my Scheepjeswol Cotton 8 stash and selected some colours!
I haven't got the shade numbers to hand but I'll let you know them when I do the ta-dah! post :-)
Ah....it was a dream to make! Something nice and easy that I could watch a couple of movies along to.
Before I knew it I was adding in the colours!
I love how the paler colours contrast against the deep grey.
I've finished the shawl already. It just needs to be blocked and few photos to be taken.
Weather permitting I should get that done this weekend.
Second project was way out of my usual comfort zone!
Via a good friend, I was pointed in the direction of this website here!
How cute???? I've never been tempted to try my hand at amigurumi before but boy! once I saw these gorgeous designs I just HAD to make something :-)
I decided on Rita the Rabbit for a first attempt but somehow I ended up buying 3 patterns....how on earth did that happen??? Hehehe!
So this is where I am on the bunny front! Just the joining to do and some finishing touches :-)
I used Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn as I just LOVE the texture it gives and it's also nice and soft to touch.
Hopefully next time I shall have some finished projects to share and also an update on the Luca project!
Til next time....
