Well January has been quite manic and we're not even half way through yet. The madness shows no sign of slowing down as I'll be off to Cardiff for a week at the end of January for training with work.
So I have managed to get some crafting done during the madness. I have been working on this Easy Peazy Shawl by Megan Delorme. I'm really enjoying the pattern, I have made a few mistakes in the lace parts but I'm happy with it so far. I am using a chenille yarn that I got in a charity shop. I love how rich it looks when it's knitted up and I love the colour. I have lots of this yarn so I may make matching gloves to go with it.
I have also been working on this cowl/infinity scarf with some noro yarn striped with some grey double knit I had in my stash. I love the effect of the colour change. I plan to sell this one on my facebook page Maggie Makes Stuff or at a Craft Fair that I might be attending soon. As it's just garter stitch it is very simply so I hope to get it finished quickly.
I picked up this notebook from Paperchase recently and I have been using it to scribble down crafty ideas so I don't forget them. I had fun decorating the cover with washi tape, stencils and stamps and for some reason I really like brown paper and rounded corners. Yes I am one of those people that gets excited about stationary.
Anyway. I hope you have enjoyed this little update.
