In no particular order, because I have absolutely no idea where April escaped to!

A cowl knit from yarn with all the colours - and a little fluffy too.
Whimsycowl designed by Nim Teasedale in Moda Vera Fern - now discontinued
I knit directly from the part ball which I had - the yellow stripe at the bottom and the blue stripe at the top were just how it came out. Perfect to pair with almost any outfit.

Playing with pictures in knitting to make another hat or three!
My own design knit in 4 Seasons Pure wool 8 ply
A test knit of a shawl pattern all ready to be gifted to a friend living in a cold place.
Slow dance by Nim Teasedale knit in Bendigo Woollen mills Luxury 4 ply - colour Lake (which is a much nicer colour than it appears on my monitor).
Another test knit that needs to remain a secret for now, but lets just say it's super cute with a big personality and lots of hair.

Oh, yeah more hats have been added to the stash - I don't think there'll be any excuse for a cold head around here.
Makamie Hat - all three are knit in Cleckheaton country 8 ply.
Needles are a-clickin here these days with more projects already filling some of the needles freed up from all the finishing.

Thanks to Kris and Peg for hosting OPAM.

Wishing you all a wonderful May.

Just making it up as I go along

You'd think I'd have something to show for my absence but really I have no clue who stole the weeks!
There's been more of a day job in recent times, which really puts a dent in the creating time- okay so it's really all the sitting in the car going nowhere that is taking up my time! Fortunately regular hours resume next week maybe I'll resume regular creating and blogging too?

More hats have been made, some I can't show yet and some I just don't have pictures of. The end of daylight savings and some dull days mean there haven't been very many photo opportunities this week.

These are both made from the same design with different colour sequences and I really do like how they look so different.

I finished a pair of slippers for a friend and gifted them without getting a picture of the pair, I have been advised that they are being kept good by only being worn while the recipient sits in his reading chair. He's convinced they'll wear out if he walks around in them.

There have been crafty get togethers and yarn purchases but as there is no pictorial evidence I may just deny the additional yarn. 

I've enjoyed looking around blogland and seeing all the amazing things you've all been making.

Wishing you cosy time in your creating space.
