    Latest Knitting Craze

    Knitting, as many of you would know, has made a bit of a come back, no longer is it a past time for elderly women, many people knitting these days are young women, even men,  and they are creating some amazing and beautiful items. One knitting craze we came across was ‘Arm Knitting‘ thats right, knitting using your arms instead of needles. The result is quite chunky as though the item has been knitted on giant needles, this style however is very trendy these days especially with scarves.  Arm Knitting For Beginners

    Blanket for Winter

    We all make beautiful scarves, blankets, beanies and other Winter warmers for ourselves when the weather starts getting colder, why not do a little something for our pets to keep them warm? So the other day I decided to make a little something for my little girl Lola. She feels the cold when she’s been clipped and unfortunately we can’t really keep her coat long, so instead we have a gorgeous pink hooded jacket for her which we bought, but last night I finished off a blanket for her. We went a bit crazy buying all this Pom-Pom wool and making blankets and scarves for ourselves and family members, and every…

    Crochet Teddy Bear

    Has anyone noticed just how cute some teddy bears are out there? The handmade ones look fantastic and that has been one of our latest DIY projects, to crochet a teddy bear.

The possibilities are endless with these gorgeous guys and you can really make each one very unique.  Our first attempt at making these African…

    Knitted Jumper

    Instead of putting together a blog on another of our creations, we thought to share with you a blog we put together of Angie’s latest project, a knitted jumper which has been in progress for a little while now, and this stunningly intricate knitted wool jumper is being made for her son, with a bit of luck, it could be ready to wear during Winter this year. I’m sure we all have projects we manage to spend a bit of time on here and there. Angie says her last knitted jumper took her a couple of years to finish; so many distractions out there for those who are creative and…

    Origami Cranes

    The last few days have been quite busy but I have somehow managed to find time to work on my latest little project. I bought a few little packets of origami paper some time ago, about 1000 sheets in each packet and slowly but surely I have been creating some pretty cute little cranes. Initially I had thought to make a cute little mobile, but now that I see them all strung up next to each other in rows I’m thinking of perhaps making a curtain out of them to either hang in front of a window or up against a wall to add a bit of colour. I never…

    Cute Crochet Hat

    I’ve always thought that little baby clothes, hats and shoes looked so cute, never knew they could be so fiddly to make until I tried unsuccessfully to creat a crochet pair of booties. So after giving up on them, for now, I tried my hand at making a crochet hat and to my surprise it turned out to be very cute. Had to stop a couple of times to think about what I wanted to do next with the hat and decided it was best to keep it fairly simple and just make it into a cute brimmed hat and the pictures below are the hat half finished on my…

    Colourful and Cute

    This is my latest crafty project I have been working on when I have had a free moment, its a Crochet Sunburst Blanket, after something like 70 rounds I’m still not perfect at creating the little sunbursts but it is something that is really enjoyable. I’d always seen blankets like this that are solid colours so I’ve chosen to use multicolored wool instead of changing all the time. I haven’t quite got them all perfect and the same size but I am hoping that this won’t matter too much. This blanket is certainly going to be an original and it will only get better from here. Anyone out there thinking…
