I was sort of at a loss as to what to knit over the weekend, I knew we were popping in and out so I wanted to be making something that was quick, fun and easy...well this fibertrends pattern completely fitted the bill. I don't think I will ever get fed up with it, the fun is endless. I knitted the green shoes whilst Barry was doing his stuff at the airshow. See the size of the unfelted green shoes against the ball of yarn and then the three pairs against the yarn after felting? I had to knit enough to make it worthwhile putting in the washing machine..oh and never ever do what I did and use towels instead of jeans to do the pummelling, you get little bits of towelly fluff stuck all over the tiny shoes which you have to pick and pick and pick and pick at!! Grrrr...I got the ribbon in our village Post Office, its not all stamps and car tax in there you know!
I have been arty crafty for as long as I can remember but since discovering knitting blogs and ravelry I have become obsessed! My passion since last summer has been spinning, I simply cannot get enough of it. I am now dyeing my own fibre and creating the most delicious and squishy batts of fibre on my drum carder. I am enjoying using my handspun to make useful items of clothing.
I married my darling husband Barry in 2008, I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are together. He is so encouraging of my creativity.
We have our own photography business, set up last year and this year we are getting busier and busier which is great but it doesn’t half use up my crafting time!
