As you may know, I have started a little business. One of the main things I’m currently making a lot of is slippers (aka unicorn riding boots). I’ve made them in adult and child sizes, and used several different yarns. Even though I don’t normally review yarns, I thought a little post might be useful…… Continue reading One Pattern, Three Yarns
Even though it’s still September, it’s getting festive here, and this week’s crafts have mainly revolved around Christmas (or sparkles!) I’m in the middle of completing orders for snowmen baubles, there are only a couple more to make now.

Never is a pretty strong word, it’s not like I had anything against the things that I have tried, more that I had felt indifferent towards them and so I’d never really…… Continue reading Never Say Never
This week has been all about Christmas amigurimi and therefore the WIPs are mostly all now finished objects.

I found this free pattern for Christmas…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-13th September
