Petrol Blue

I've always wanted a super long skinny scarf  and have seen quite a few in shops recently, but alas they are knitted in acrylic. I found this beautiful lambs Pride wool a couple of weeks ago in my local wool shop and decided it would be perfect for my long scarf project. I really love the colour and it's great to knit with.

I casted on 12 stitches to 6mm needles and continued to knit in garter stitch until nearly the whole ball was gone!! I saved some wool to add fringing to the ends. I might customise it further with buttons. This was a quick project I started it on Friday eve and finished it Sat night.

I made myself a new hair band this week! It's a moss stitch band with a flower design on the side. I casted on 10 stitches and just knitted it until it was the correct lenght to fit around my head. I wanted a thinner band as most shop bought bands are too wide for my hairstyle, I end up with crazy tuffs of hair popping out:)

I'm excited to announce the last stitch of my never ending jumper has been made:)
I will attempt to sew it together this eve wish me luck! I couldn't help but piece it together on the floor just to give me an idea of how it would look when finished......

I decided to try another cable project before I finished  the never ending jumper sleeve. I found a great beginners cable bag project on ravelry which uses super bulky wool. I LOVE it just finished the knitting part now to figure out the 'putting it together' part:) It has also made me realise I need to improve my sewing skills so I can line it!!

My three days are up back to work this morning. It would be amazing if we could swap our weekends to work days and our work days to weekends, then I'd have 5 days of crafting. 
Got loads done with the extra day, worked on decorations for Dave's 30th and nearly finished two Christmas pressies. I'm currently LOVING garlands, this one can be found on Etsy by

I can't show you the other projects until December just incase they are spotted by the Birthday boy!

These are pics of my lunch time walk today, It was very cold out but I was toasty warm in my newly knitted purple cowl. I'm off for three days in a row yipee!! I'm planning on visiting an amazing wool store in Bristol on Saturday and the rest of the time will be spent crafting, I have some ideas for christmas gifts which I really want to get started on. Jumper update 1/4 way through my jumper sleeve:)

I'm nearly there, starting the 2nd sleeve over the next few days. This is my first big knitting project hats etc.... are so quick to knit up this jumper has taken quite some time in comparison. I'm pretty happy with it so far, looking forward to the end result. I've spent so much time working on it I reckon I'll probably wear it all the time and maybe even sleep in it :)
