Well today is my 3 year blogiversary.

Although I find less time these days I do enjoy reading blogs and getting to see your makes and gathering inspiration and ideas, it is something I could not do without.  I have come to know many of you through your blogs and Instagram and I have made some great friends along the way.

As a little thank you for following and bearing with my ramblings, I would like to offer up a little giveaway.

I just bought myself this book and really love it so I bought another to offer to you.  I have made a little knitted wool pin cushion inspired by the makes in this book. 

I will add a couple of other little treats in there too.

A wooly catch up

I've been busy hooking up a few little easter gifts and though I would share them here, first up is little 'Lynda the Knitting Bunny' made for my Knitting Guru friend, made from the pattern here.

I made a little crochet spring / easter bag for my friend's little girl. 
Sophie is just over 6 months old and too little for chocolate so I bought her a few books and thought a little bag might be nice to give them in. 

I made this up as I went, it is just a big rectangle of alternating double crochet and treble crochet lines finished with a simple scallop at the top and a couple of curvy handles.
The daffodil is from an Attic24 pattern.

 Whilst the hook was out I did myself a couple more 6" squares for the CannyCAL crochet-along.  Hopefully at this rate I will have another crochet blanket to show this year!

 Check me out in my favourite position, feet up with my slippers on!

I've made extra squares that are not on the CAL just to keep up the momentum as I need to have this blanket completed this year!
Back to the knitting and my shawl kits finally arrived and I have made a start, but I am struggling. 

 I don't find knitting comfortable at all I have very tight shoulders after a short while, I am persevering for now though

In the meantime I made some knitted gloves from this pattern available from the same designer on Ravelry.
  Now I really enjoyed making these and didn't find the tight shoulder thing happened at all.  
They are not perfect and they did take me a while but I am in 
love with them.

Excuse the weird photo but they are hard to model!
I am wearing them with my Colour Affection shawl which was a special handmade gift from my talented friend Lynda and I adore it! I'm very much a pink stripe girl it seems!

I still love my little place in blogland and this Tuesday is my 3 year Blogiversary. To celebrate I would like to host a little giveaway, I will be back on Tuesday to share.

Back Soon
