Knit, knit…mitt, mitt

Recently I’ve had a bit of a ‘block’ with knitting…nothing was going as it should and I was struggling with the simplest of things. So I decided to do a quick and fairly simple project to try to get my knitting mojo back. So, check it out!

Isnt it cute!

I love fingerless mittens…I wear them a lot when I use my walking stick so that I don’t get a sore and blistered hand (eep!)

I used Posh Yarn to make them…the yarn is called Sylvia DK and the colourway is ‘Different Corner’. Posh Yarn update their shop every Sunday at 8pm GMT and the dye lots are small so each yarn is very unique!

The pattern I used can be found here at, for free!

If you decide to knit up some mitts, let me know and show pictures!

Dont forget that I have the lovely competition running until the end of the month (click here to go to the competition post).

There has been enough comments so far to add an extra something to the prize fund! So you can win the cute hanging heart decoration, a stripey A4 notebook and a bag of sweets! Get commenting now for a chance to win it all!

Lots of Love,

What is making me happy today…

I’m worn out from yesterday so I need a bit of cheering up…luckily, it didn’t take too long to find some cheery things 🙂


Aren’t they adorable?

These little stitch markers arrived a few days ago (please excuse the dodgy photo!). I ordered them from eBay but the lovely person I bought them from also has an online shop which you can find here. They were beautifully packaged in little organza bags and they will be perfect for marking my stitches when I start knitting socks.

Which brings me to…



This arrived today!

The gorgeous pink and dotty green fabric will be used to finish off the mobile phone case I knitted (I’ll show you when it’s done). And I had a whole stack of double point knitting needles which will enable me to knit socks! It’s going to be tricky but I’ll try my best.

That brings me nicely on tot he latest thing I have knitted…


Cosy and warm

Aren’t they just the cutest mittens! And yes, that is my arm you can see there 🙂

I’m pointing out the little pocket flap as I need to get some tiny buttons to finish that off but I am so pleased that I was finally able to knit something other than a scarf! That’s all because of the knitting book my boy bought me for Christmas…thanks!

Another thing to cheer me up is that I have finally figured out how to work the camera on my phone 😛

I have all my knitting and finishing projects to now so that should keep me busy…but I shall be posting a new ‘project’ on here in the next few days and I hope you’ll join in too. It’s going to be fun!

Look what Arrived Today!

Aren’t they gorgeous?! I am loving fingerless gloves right now…I have knitted my own fingerless mittens and am working on another pair but these ones have the lovely lacy effect that I’m not good enough to knit yet! I’m wearing my pair right now and they are so warm yet soft and delicate. (By the way, thats not me in the picture above :P).

I received my gloves today from along with a yellow vest with a sketched rose on it and a thin, grey cardigan that will be perfect for the spring…oh I can’t wait until the spring arrives.

keeping warm

Well now, that was a long time away…never fear, loveliness is back again now 🙂

Lets start with this…

The cutest bear hat! Well, the knitting pattern for said bear hat…which I’m still not going to be able to manage just yet (scarves still, y’know). Elsie is so cute! And I want that hat.

Here’s something very cute that I already actually have!

They are lovely warm bootees…there is a bit of a sparkle to them too and they have pompoms and they are the softest, fluffiest things ever! Like little bunnies…in fact, sometimes when I’m wearing them I stroke my foot and pretend it is a little pet bunny…

Final bit of lovely for today…smittens!

No more coldness while holding hands! I also like how one of the mitten bits is smaller than the other for the girl 🙂 I think they are very cute…highly doubt that if I had them they would ever get used though…in fact I can feel my boy mentally vetoing them right now…
