Knitting needle vase

I bought this fabric a few months ago, hoping to make an apron out of it, but realised I didn't have enough of it, so instead I made a nice little cosy for my ever increasing stash of knitting needles, I used an old biscuit tin and simply glued on the fabric! I love bird patterns sooooo much!!!

Xmas Wrapping....

I've gone for some eco-wrapping paper from Paperchase, seen as I'm on a 'saving the world' vibe of late, it also goes with my vintage/gothic aesthetic, I hope its not too dramatic for a fuzzy warm holiday such as xmas???!!!

Xmas Present No2 Complete

Yes, another scarf but this one was ordered...a plain white, simple scarf and it is exactly that. Again knitted in SIRDAR wool, this time a lovely cotton, wool blend so its nice and soft! I used 9mm needles and it only took me a couple of afternoons!

Xmas Present No1 Complete

A scarf for my brothers girlfriend! I love the colour and texture of this wool! It is very much like Rowan Kid Silk but less expensive. Its called SIRDAR BLUR with Kid Mohair, its 70% acrylic and 30% Kid Mohair.
It knits very easily, although the tension is very hard to keep constant so it came out a bit wavy, but this is something that really doesn't matter when your wearing it!!!
