I don’t seem to have my blog writing head on atm ๐Ÿ˜ฆ this makes me sad, but I promised an update so an update I shall write.

First off, goals update ๐Ÿ˜€ I posted a new drawing on my DA (http://emzybobs.deviantart.com/), is a chibi sketch of FLChan, I copied it from a chibi sketch I found on google so it’s not original but its a drawing ๐Ÿ˜€ as I get more confidence drawing again I’ll be creating more original pictures but for now copying can be good practice, so without any more ranting on about it from me I present my drawing :-D:


Isn’t she cute? I’m rather proud of her, she’s the first thing I’ve drawn in a long while.

If you read my last post, you’ll know another one of my goals is to finish a knitting project a month, this I think is going rather well at the moment, my hat is currently growing at a rate I’m happy with and, providing I knit a few rows everyday, I should reach my goal and be blogging a hat next week :-D.

Here’s a picture of it so you can get an idea of where I’m now up to. My new hat-to-be

As for the rest of my goals, I’m yet to find a jumper pattern I like, I got linked to a rather nice project that has cables for my cable knitting learning in the comments of my last post, I’ve taken a lot of pictures, but I haven’t really done any crochet or read much, overall I’m rather happy, I feel like I’m right on track and getting what I intend to do done so it’s all good an I’m happy :-).

In other non-goal related news, I updated my DeviantArt account to premium because I really wanted to a feel like it makes it look a lot better, this is kinda related to my goal actually because I feel like I’ll post more if all the features of the site are unlocked.

Almost finally but not quit, I went knitting group again this week as always, I’m really lucky to find a knitting group that meets every week or so I hear most groups only meet monthly, onto the point :-), I bought some new knitting needles from one of my friend’s at knitting group, there an awesome set of deluxe knit pro needles with gold-plated ends in a wooden box ๐Ÿ˜€ I got them for ยฃ35 which made me very happy, some pictures for you:

Sorry they aren’t as neatly laid out as the rest of the photos I’m really not sure how to insert a gallery of selected images rather than just all the images of the post.

In totally unrelated news to the rest of the post, I got my Emilie Autumn tickets today!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ its the small things that make life good (if you don’t know who Emilie Autumn is this Youtube channel has her entire discography plus a few live recordings, its a fan made channel but its still pretty good for Emilie stuff http://www.youtube.com/user/wingedzephyr?blend=1&ob=4&rclk=cti )

Finally, before I go, I’m currently working on moving from emzybobs.wordpress.com to emzybobs.co.uk, I’ll make sure that when the transition happens I’ll have this blog redirect you to that site, this is just a pre-warning so there aren’t any wtf moments :-).

So that’s it for this what seems to have turned into a super long post, I hope next week I’ll have just as much to mention and more goals achived.

๐Ÿ™‚ bye till next week



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)
