A right good yarn…

Well … today I can share some of my brand new makes using my hand crafted miniature knitting needles. It all began as I wanted a knitting themed hair slide. I searched online in the usual places to no avail so decided to craft my own. They turned out so gorgeous I soon crafted some brooches to match.

I wore mine today and almost the first person I talked to commented on my beautiful hair slide. I think they are the perfect gift for a yarn lover. With Mother’s Day fast approaching I can gift wrap and post out directly to your lovely mummy enclosing a gift card and your personalised message. Or why not simply treat yourself to one?

£7.50 each plus £3 p&p for something quirky, unique and very different.

Which yarn colour would you choose?

One ball wonder!

Shopping in Aldi is a real dilemma for a yarn lover because they always have such lovely wool on offer. Their beautiful yarn in store makes me think guiltily of my yarn stash which is so huge that I would have to knit for a decade (without putting my needles down) to even make a woolly dent in it! However, I simply couldn’t walk away from this stunning chunky purple yarn but as I restricted myself to just one ball the dilemma this time was what to knit! ! Luckily I chanced upon this free ‘Artisan Capelet’ pattern at RedHeart.com but made a few little personal tweaks by adding a crochet picot edging and a huge vintage button. I now have a beautiful, one ball wonder 💜
