I’m Back :-D September 10, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Emzybobs @ 11:18 pm


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™‚

Filed under: Knitting,My stuff — Emzybobs @ 3:35 am

Hi all,

So my w.i.p list is getting smaller!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I finished an armwarmer on Friday!

It took me a while but I present to you the right arm in a pair of armwarmers I’m yet to name!!


armwarmer thumb

I started the left arm today and I must say I’m having more fun knitting it then I’ve ever had knitting anything!

I’m gonna start another pair when this one is done and I’ll get a pattern written down for you guys so you can have your own pair of sexy super arm length warmers :-P.

Apart from the amazingness of my armwarmer knit-wise this week has been a little not exciting, life-wise alots happened, I’m still sick (my own fault I just haven’t gone to the doctores), The washing machines still broke, the showers messed up, so were moving out……..but thats another story for another day :-).

Song of the post:

The Birthday Massacre- Looking Glass (awesome song strange vid O.o)

Love you all ๐Ÿ˜› lol



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

National Knit in Public Day June 11, 2009

Filed under: Knitting,Uncategorized — Emzybobs @ 5:42 pm

Hi guys ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t crafted much recently, I started attempting to knit a sock but mostly I’ve been watching DVD’s, we got season 4 of House :-D, and I’ve been watching some Gilmore Girls so thats taken up alot of my time.

Onto the reason for this post, over the weekend its world wide knitting in public day, where hundreds of knitters gather and knit in public together for a few hours all over the world ๐Ÿ˜€ย  heres the link so you can find your gathering http://www.wwkipday.com/ I’m going to attempt to get down to my local kip gathering, otherwise I think I’ll just sit on a bench in a park for a few hours and knit in the spirit of the day :-P.

Thats pretty much it, hope you have a great wwkip day, my local gathering is Preston Uk incase anyone was wondering :-P.

Bye for now Have a great day.


SpongeBob-The f.u.n song, because thats the kinda mood i’m in today.
