New Wednesdays ;)

What a wonderful Wednesday: A gorgeous, sunny, Indian Summer kind of day :)

wip wednesday

What is new in my Wednesday WIP image? Can you tell?
Yes, you are right! There is a definite lack of blue in today's image - Yeah!!

Finally, my Cleo is done - I will reveal it on Friday.

In my bid to finish the Cleo come what may by Saturday, I have slightly aggravated my Carpal Tunnel so since Saturday I haven't being doing too much WIP wise.

Knitting Loom Cap

My loom cap is moving forwards pretty slowly, but I am hoping that I will once again be active this weekend so that I can share this pattern with you next week.

Drops Alpaca 108-3

I will also be casting on my next Stash-Busting Project, a Basque Hat for Jas. I made one of these caps last year as a Christmas gift for a friend and Jas asked me if I could make her one for the autumn. I will gladly do so as it was a lovely cap to knit.

What do you have in your project bag?

Knitting Madness Hangout

Would you like to share and see what I have in mine?

Then come along and join in this month's "Knitting Madness" Live Event on Friday.

An now Introducing:.....

Look at the new cuties belonging to our family since Saturday:

sibling kitty love :)

Aren't the adorable?
This is our new sibling kitty couple, Bubble and Fawn. They are 11 weeks old and so sweet. It is so nice to have cats back in the house after our 13 year old beloved Stitch died in March of this year. But, boy they are a handful :)

Today I am so excited as I have been featured on The SITS Girls gorgeous Page!
If you haven't visited there yet, I would warmly recommend that you do. They feature awesome, interesting content and it is always such a pleasure to visit.


Reading wise: I am just about done with "Gone Girl" and am also reading "You Are What you Eat". Whilst living in S.A. I used to love watching this series and the book is a nice refresher on the tips and tricks she offered.

Don't Forget - Today is our last chance to win one of these awesome Diaries for 2014.

Also tomorrow: I will be featuring some of the wonderful tutorials that I found linked on my Tutorial Thursdays Linky Party this week - will yours be included?

See you then.

      Yes, me too, I bought it last year this time because I couldn't resist the colour, so I look forward to seeing how the hat turns out :)

  6. Congratulations on your SITS day. I hope it's a wonderful day for you.

    I hope the carpal tunnel eases up so you can finish your project. I struggle with it, too. It can be tough getting things like that done. And congratulations on the new kitties as well. They are adorable! Good luck getting the snuggles you want even with the playfulness they no doubt have at this age. Kitties make everything better.

    1. Hi Michelle,
      Thank you so much, it has been so much fun so far :)
      The kittens are incredibly busy, but so adorable, soon I am going to have to upgrade my cell just so I have more memory for the huge amounts of pictures I am taking! Holding every move to memory - you would think I have never seen a cat before LOL!!

  13. Hi Natalie, I can see that you are involved in a lot of projects on your blog. It must keep you very busy. I tried knitting once, when I was younger. My grandma attempted to teach me, however, as I'm left handed, she couldn't figure out how to show me what to do. I tried on my own but made a huge mess. Knitting is not for me. I hope you are enjoying your SITS day. I will check out more of your blog. Have a blessed day.

    1. Hi Vicki,
      Maybe you need to try another craft like crochet? My mom taught me how to knit, boy hers was so tight it used to squeak off the needles, ended up almost getting blisters LOL. I gave it up as something I would never take to, and what do you know, it did work at some point! Don't give up it can be so fulfilling to create your own stuff.

  17. Happy SITS Day!!! Your craftiness amazes me - you are incredible. I'm about the most uncrafty person there is.

    1. Hi Kim,
      Thank you so much. I think we are all crafty in some way, we just have to find which field of craft we like to delve into :) I used to think I was not very creative until I started to become creative in small steps and it evolved from there! The fun is finding your craft and discovering your creative side. I always love trying new things, sometimes they are great fun, sometimes they are once off experiences. But then again, we don't all have to want to be creative either, enjoy being, that is always a good place to start!
      Thanks for your visit.

    1. Hi Margarita,
      Being good at cross stitch is talented! I am not good at needlework at all and adore looking at projects done with needlepoint, so well-done to you!

  20. I love your new additions! They are adorable. My two kitties are littermates and sleep curled together like that. I bet your Indian summer is beautiful. We lucked into excellent weather when we were there last September.
