Little thoughts

Little thoughts: need more sleep! :)

Saturday, November 6, 2010


Not that my boyfriend would believe me but I'm actually running out of supplies!  Not fabric, but all the other bits and pieces like brooch pins and fluffy wool; you know, the essentials!  I'll actually take a list this time though and try my best to stick to it as I need to be focused and only get the things I need to be getting on with the Christmas present making.

My eldest sister has put a spanner in the works though as she'd heard from my mum that I'd been making pom pom scarfs that I've posted about here and has bought herself some wool that she wants me to use to make her a scarf with!  At least I know for definite what colour she wants and it's a good job I hadn't started on one for her yet but it's slightly frustrating that my mum let the cat, admittedly unwittingly, out of the bag.  My next eldest sister (I have three older sisters and get awfully confused as to how to refer to them without using names) was also told by my mum about the scarves and wanted a tutorial on how to make them so she could have something to do with my niece!  Aaaarrrggghhh!  So much for keeping things a surprise.  I'm still going to make them, it's a 'Mastermind' thing of "I've started so I'll finish" type of thing.

Oh well, quicker I go, the quicker I can be back making things to show you!

Happy Weekend!


  1. Hi Mimi, I hope this isn't ruining any kind of surprises that you had planned - but wanted to apologise - I hadn't checked out the comments on Crafty Christmas Club for a while! You asked about crochet ... The book that I got for starting to crochet was "The Happy Hooker" by Debbie Stoller (It's part of the Stitch 'n bitch series). I am a relatively newbie crocheter, & they all say Granny Squares are a good starting point. I love making crochet flowers though - so my first project would be a granny square cushion cover (with crochet flowers on it!!). The beret in my picture was also quite easy & that was in a crochet magazine. I find it more forgiving than knitting as it is easy to take out mistakes!!! Good luck !!

  2. Hi!

    No, not going to add to my list any more things thanks! Just wanted to learn something new and crocheting and knitting are the top ones. Thanks for the advice, I've seen the Stitch 'n Bitch books but haven't seen the crochet one yet so shall check that out.

    Thanks again x


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
