Joining in withÂ Ginny at Small Things yarn along this week.
I found this free pattern at Spotlight and thought it would be great for Scarlett for school. Â Scarlett’s favourite colour at the moment is blue and I just love the colour of the yarn I chose for her. Â It is a greenish blue colour. Â However, the yarn is acrylic which has that cotton wool feel to it, which I don’t like. Â (I purchased it in a rush and didn’t realise it wasn’t really soft). Â So I am having second thoughts about using it. Â I do have some lovely pure wool that is white, that I am thinking of colouring, which would be much nicer. Â I just need to get my head around unraveling all the balls to dye them. Â So technically, I haven’t gotten anything on my needles at the moment, but it is consuming headspace!
Reading-wise, I purchased the books pictured below, at a book shop that has gone into liquidation and they were selling books a very reasonable prices. Â I couldn’t help myself and purchased 3. The are all lovely and I think I will be giving away the Happy Gloves book by Miyako Kanamori, in a future giveaway. Â It’s really cute. Â All the projects are made using a pair of gloves.
The Wrapped in Love book by Felicity Dawson, I have eyed off in the past, but couldn’t resist it this time. Â The Fuzzy Felted Friends book by Saori Yamazaki is gorgeous and has heaps of cute projects. Â Lets just say, I have more than enough inspiration to keep me busy, just need to find more time (don’t we all!!)
