pre collection woes

stressful times again!

I am ill with what can only be described as the worst case of flu i have ever had yet I still have to concentrate on my pre collection.

I am basing it on the 1970's skate group the 'z-boys', if they were to come and conquer the english countryside.

I am really enjoying the project so far but it is moving forward so quickly I don't feel like I have time to breathe! I also don't cope very well when I am ill and its leading me to second guess myself and not be able to make decisions so everything is taking twice as long.

ah well another night of lemsip and toing and froing

everything is cuter when it has eyes

After a very busy day at the Knitting and Stitching Show yesterday at Alexandra Palace, I sat down with my new purchases - one of which is the cute book by Anna Hrachovec of Mochi Mochi Land.

After looking through the whole book about 5 times I decided that anything is cute as long as it has eyes! I particularly like the Confused Moose, Pigs in Wigs and the Bed Bugs.

As I dragged my mum all the way round the show yesterday and she treated me to dinner I decided I would make her a Bed Bug as she fell in love with them when she saw the pattern


I loved knitting him. I can see that I am going to end up with a menagerie of funny little creatures...

ally pally

Tomorrow I am off to the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally! I'm excited but hoping not to spend too much as I haven't knit much from my knit nation haul yet!

Hopefully this trip will kick start my blog writing again as I have been a bit rubbish lately!
