I need some Ideas January 25, 2010

Hi ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’ve read my last two posts, you’ll know that I’ve set myself some creative goals for this year, I’m well on my way to achieving these goals at the moment, theres just one problem at the moment, one of my goals is to draw at least one picture a month, the problem with this is, I’m having a total idea block, this is just me asking if any of you guys have any ideas as to what you’d like to see me draw, no limits on what you suggest, the more of a challenge the better :-).

thank you for any suggestions I’ll try everything that is suggested to me.




I’m Back :-D September 10, 2009

So lifes pretty much sorted out now which is good :-), all I need to do is make sure I get money to pay for, well living and I’m all set! I start Uni on Monday, which is awesome, I’m doing a course I actually like this time round so it should be good.

In terms of knitting, well I realised I have tooo many unfinished projects, I’m talking a whole shelf! its crazy, so I’ve decided that I shall use this blog to make myself finish these projects, I’m basically going to be really dissapointed with myself if I don’t have anything to post at least once a week because there are enough projects on my shelf to make that happen…..

So to start of the project finishing marathon I have some armwarmers or sleeves I haven’t decided yet, the plan will be, if I decide they are sleeves, to buy a cheap black jumper cut the arms part-way up then sew the sleeves onto the jumper, it should look pretty awesome, I’ll post up some pictures of them in my next post.

I guess thats all I have to post for now ๐Ÿ™‚ hopefully this time round I’ll get into the flow of blogging a bit better and get some better content up on here.

bye ๐Ÿ™‚

Knitting group and my first shawl!! June 19, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Emzybobs @ 8:51 pm

Hiya ๐Ÿ™‚

Last night I went to stitch and bitch in Preston, I was kinda nervous, I hadn’t met any knitters since I started knitting in October, I have to say I’m glad I went ๐Ÿ™‚ it was so cool to be surrounded by lots of other knitters, the group was way bigger than I expected, but they were all really really nice so I’m going again next Thursday for sure :-D.

In other news (lol) today I finally plucked up th courage to knit a shawl, I’ve been looking at these patterns for ages but I’ve been too scared to attempt them because there normally huge, I finally settled on this one: http://carissaknits.blogspot.com/2007/06/dragon-scales-shawl.html

It took me the best part of three hours and much frogging to get it started properly, but I appear to have settled into it now ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m this far so far:


(I lost my phone wire >< so the image quality is webcam for now)

I guess thats all ๐Ÿ™‚ I should pop a song in this post I think I skipped one ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Emilie Autumn- Save You (because I think its pretty :-P)

I guess thats all I have to say today.

Bye bye
