Just dropping a quick line to say that am away on my interrailing adventure and that you lovely followers should expect some kind of radio silence as there will be no creative posts until I return.
In the meanwhile, will hold all the magical updates!
Much love,

Knitting and other things

I have been knitting like an old lady. To date, I have knitted 74 squares. Which sounds like a fairly small number, but considering this has been done in about 8 weeks, this becomes slightly more impressive (to me at least).
I've learnt a lot, and my tensions are getting better (I can heat you saying snorin'ell, Abi, I do not care for your technical knitting shiz... but remember, I can apply this to making some awesome jumpers for YOU). I've been using more and more advanced patterns, woohooo.... anyway; enough with the jibberjabber, on with the photos!!!

Lots of 'knit one purl one'

Beautiful fairisle - definately a jumper worthy pattern

Aunty Janet's (obviously)perfect square

Moss stitch, cable and reverse stocking stitch

I also knitted a egg cosey, which was my first experience of creating 'bobbles'... truly eye-opening. It is pictured next to a 'hat' which came on an innocent smothie bottle thanks to the big knit which I WILL be doing this year.

slightly smuf looking colours...I will be adding a pom pom.
Aaaaaand that's not all folks!!! I promised a picture of my travel wallet and diary (which I filled in throughout my French holiday); here you go!!

Dairy, left, and open travel wallet with pass etc, right.

closed travel wallet.
So that's all for now folks - will update before I leave to interrail round europe i'm sure
Much love
