Hi ๐Ÿ˜€

First off yay for over the top emo title? I’ve been in a bit of a bad mood of late which is why I haven’t posted for a long long time, again I’ve messed up uni but this time I’m just not gonna try again next year I’ll more than likely mess up again.

So I guess seen as this is a crafting blog, mostly about my knitting I should tale about my knitting, I haven’t finished anything new in a while, but I’m currently knitting another hat, this ones red, black and a little bit of gray its turning out nice so far, I’ll blog it when its done.

In other news, related to craft but kinda more art type stuff, I got a new camera and took a few pictures of my needles and yarn because I’m a total knitting nerd I’ll post a gallery of my pictures at the end of this post.

I’m not going to post a video of the post video any more I don’t think it works well and it makes my blog look messy.

That is all I really have to say in this post, I’m going to start setting reminders on my phone telling me to post once a week, I’ll most likely do and update on a Friday and a post whenever I finish a project or something else good happens throughout the week.

Oh yeah before I go I just remembered I’M GOING TO SEE EMILIE AUTUMN IN MARCH! I’m really excited ๐Ÿ˜›

So I guess if everything goes to plan I’ll be posting again on Friday Toodles for now. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Flower time!! June 6, 2009

Hi everyone!!

So I haven’t really done much in the way of crafting since I finished my scarf, I swapped my boob hat from 4 DPN to 6, that is really pretty much it, so today I thought I’d post a gallery and a few links to some patterns.

I’ve been making knitted/ crochet flowers for a few weeks now, since I got a book called knitted flowers from the library, most of them turn into messy clumps of yarn, one of them turned out pretty nice.

On line at the moment, flowers seem to be popping up everywhere (for me anyway) which I think is awesome because I love pretty things!! I posted a gallery below of some of the ones I like the best (I also posted links to where I found them)
