I adore this beautiful jumper, it'd go really well with a pair of skinnny jeans and a pair of Vans, especially with this wintery weather! No other links or credits unfortunately!
As an avid lover of pokemon I realised I HAD to have these! Made by CalefRoadCrafts.
These colours make my eyes so happy! Its the PaintBoxes Cowl by Susan Ashcroft.
More next week! Thanks for reading :)
The needles are 4mm Signatures with the stiletto tips and 100cm cable. (I highly recommend these needles, the stilettos are perfect for lace and anything else, and the cables don't kink and are super flexible!)
I can't quite remember the brand of yarn but I think its James C Brett Baby soft something or other. Either way its lovely and soft and everything you'd expect baby yarn to be.
I took this picture with little Muffin sniffing my freshly made tuna pasta, I hadn't realised he'd had a sneaky lick!
Started reading this gem today, my mum dropped off a massive crate of books from my old house and of course held my entire collection of Harry Potter books. I've started to re read them and they're just as brilliant as I remember them. Anyway, I'm up to number four now!
Til' Next time!

I've spent a portion of the evening redoing my logos and headers, just to give it a little refresher! I'm hoping to add a few new things to the blog such as baking and drawing, to give a little variety to it.
So what do you think of the new look? Have you redone your blog recently?

Did another hour or so of knitting on this lovely honey cowl yesterday. It's knitting up rather quickly which is nice. I'm wondering whether it was a better idea to have knitted the larger version as I did buy two balls of Monsoon, but perhaps I could make another one to give to a friend of a giveaway?
Yesterday I tried my hand at a little bit of baking, I didn't manage to take any pictures, but me and my other half fancied something sweet after dinner. I had a look at what we had in the cupboard and my ingredients consisted of flour, milk, butter, cinnamon sticks, maple syrup and eggs. I didn't even have any sugar! Luckily enough I was able to whip up some sugar free cookies with maple syrup, sprinkled with cinnamon. It did the job although the recipe was a little floury, I'll make some adjustments and post it here!
'Til next time!

Hello again! I have been stitching like a mad woman and tonight I present to you this washed out night-time image of my stitching! I forgot to get a picture in daylight but have tried to edit to show the colours correctly. I'm so happy I've gotten to the point where you can see my Mums face, its a little more motivating to show it coming together now!
Also, I have done a terrible silly thing. Notice that torn edge on the right side? I decided to "trim" the edges so I didn't have so much fabric hanging off the edge of my frame and instead sheared off most of it. I completely forgot to leave some for the frame and stretching!
So guys, have I ruined it? Could a professional printing place frame it with that much fabric there? I was planning on just the stitched area showing anyway. Oh well, thats a mistake I won't be making again!
I'll post some more progress in a couple of weeks :) I've been so busy working and doing other hobbies (drawing/video games etc.) I don't think I'll be updating this more than bi-monthly, but I will be updating and thats all that matters!
See you next time ladies and gents.
