Knitted presents

This week I've been rushing to finish a hat for a friends b'day on Sat. I made one for myself a few weeks ago and alot of people have commented on how nice it is. I finished it last night. Its a really easy pattern from a blog I found called Treats & Treasures It has some lovely designs, patterns and inspirations from Marieke Berghuis Leewens in Amsterdam.
I decided to go with an camoflage green colour as I know the recipient wears alot of army colours and would be more likely to actually wear it if it matched his clothes. Anyway, this is the result, I also made a card with a lego robot on it...

Pie & Knitting

Today was my day off work so I've been quite productive, I finished knitting my wrist warmers and sewing them up, I've decided I'm going to put some lace and maybe some felt flowers on them, so I'll post photos when I'm done! I made a lovely beef and vegetable pie...

This evening I decdied to take a look at the knitting machine Col bought me from a charity shop months ago, its been gathering dust in my room because Ive been too scared to attemp setting it up. this proved to be the easiest part, now I cant knit on it, haha. So, if anyone is clued up I'd love some advice / help!

My Room

At the moment I dont have much room but I've been trying to make the most of the space I have to do crafts, all my wool and fabric is under the bed in baskets and I have some nice clean surface to work on now...

Knitted Purse

This was my first attempt at a knitted purse, which I added a zip and a felt flower too...
it's okay but I think I can do better next time....
