Wednesday WIPs


Wednesday again.......you do know that there are only 40 days until the festive season is in full swing :O
I guess I will be burning elbow grease like nothing else for the next while! 
How are you doing with your festive WIPs?

Talking of Festive WIPs - all my Secret Santas out there - a quick reminder that your crafty loveliness need to be finding there way to the Post office by end of next week i.e. 24th November
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to Email me.

Now onto this weeks knitting WIPs:

I finished Kays' Simple Cowl, I will post it on Friday as my FO :D

On my needles this week: (well the stuff I can show you ;))

First off - Jas Cap
My dear HP fan saw this cap on Hermione and chose it as her winter wooly.
 I am eager to please - who wouldn't be, it really is a cute pattern and really fun to knit! 
I am knitting it in Drops Alpaca - what a gorgeous, soft yarn!




Next: This is also a project Jas asked for. It is her Perfectly Pink Pullover


Haven't knitted a stitch on this one this week :(. What is quite nifty is that this enormous ball of yarn does get in the way and so there is only one thing for it - knit it up!!! I am hoping I will move on this sometime this week. 
But you know how it is on holiday, time on my hands, and end up doing a million other things instead of what I would like to spend my time doing!

Hmmm, what am I doing on my holiday?
Well this and that. 
Among other things I am:

 Re-organizing my Filofax (I will be adding some free printable planners as I create them so if you are a filofax fan like myself do come back over the next week)
I am getting so excited about my new Blog Swap happening next week - 22nd November - don't miss it.


I will be swapping for the day with Natalie from Hungry Hippie and will be posting more about it over the week especially tomorrow on Tutorial Thursday

If you want to join in the fun, I would love you to visit me and share your creativeness for this week. (Any craft is welcome ;))

 Tomorrow I will be creating something cool out of these articles:



Come by tomorrow to see what I make!

Ooh nearly forgot....

On my E-reader:



I decided to get reading for my "Fall into Reading" Challenge as the Game of Thrones wasted used up so much of my precious reading time. 

"Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Piccoult is a brilliant read thus far. 
It is the first time I am reading one of her books and am thoroughly enjoying it so far. 
Glad I have more than one of her books on my list as it could be quite easy reading if they are all as good as this one!

I am sharing this post over with all the wonderfully talented folk over at Tami and Ginny, so head over there for some cool projects.
See you tomorrow

    1. Hi Elisabeth,
      Yes, I guess that is in my genetic make-up, no-one in my family seems to be able to sit still, I feel lost without something to create in my hands. When I am busy my world is fantastic ;)
      Thanks for your visit

  2. Love your cable work! I think cables might be my favorite part of knitted work. I've only done super basic knitting and am sticking to crochet these days. But LOVE your works in progress!

    1. Hi nothingbutknit2,
      I know right?
      I still have my head above the water level, so not about to drown just yet, which means I can keep going for a little while :).
      I just have sooo many ideas and things I want to accomplish before the year is out - there is no time like the present!
      Thanks so much for visiting, have a super rest of your Wednesday.

  7. I can't wait to see the finished pink project. It looks so fuzzy and warm. I don't think I've read a bad Jodi Picoult book.

    1. Hi Spinster Beth,
      Yes it is a mix of mohair, acrylic, polyamid, and wool.
      Thanks for visiting.
