Many Expletives

So it turns out that all blogger images are stored on Google+.
I don't use Google+ so I didn't want all those images on there...so I deleted them.

Now my blog has no images. At all.

Bare with me I'm going to slowly put them all back in.

Another one




Yep, I made another one. Seemed like the right thing to do in the middle of summer really.
I finally convinced myself to make a hat out of grey yarn I purchased in Iceland. I sat there and made the pattern up as I knitted which is always fun. I started this on Boxing Day whilst the boys we're simultaneously watching the Cricket and the NBA, yep, two TV's side by side. It was a lovely way to spend the day after Christmas.



I'm pretty freaking happy with it. It was nice to make a beanie all from scratch that was different
to the TAKK ones I've been making for the last year!

I'm back at work tomorrow, I can't quite believe how fast this two weeks has gone.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year



Merry Christmas! This year, I decided to bake gifts for my friends and family. There is something special about receiving baked goods as a present that I love.


I made Cinnamon Sugared Almonds and the traditional Shortbread. And I found these amazing very Hipster on trend glasses with handles on Ebay. I had to keep a few for myself too hehe.

I hope whoever reads this is having a wonderful Holiday Season and have a Happy New Year!
I'll do my best to post more in the New Year. Here's to many more adventures, laughs and knitting!

I'm getting rusty



OH MAN, I don't even know where to start.

Our studio got split up two weeks ago and now its just the 3 stooges in our own little Graphics hide-hole. We're stressed there is too much to get done in not enough time and I'm in the middle of the biggest job we do that has to get to the printer tomorrow.

But Christmas is coming.

And I went of a lovely weekend away the pyrenees winery region. The only camera I took besides my phone was my film camera so hopefully I finish that roll at Christmas and I can upload those too.




Also been doing a little bit of more traditional design work in my spare time. I designed Grace a card and matching envelope and wrapping paper, she was very chuffed.


Definitely thinking about doing more of this stuff maybe to sell...I forgot how much I enjoyed these things. It's funny when you do something you love for a full time job that you neglect it in your spare time. Gotta get back into it.


OH AND I GOT A NEW MAC BOOK PRO...and knitted a case for my hard drive cos well, me.


That's about it. New Laptop, Design, Moved, Stressed, Winery and now onto Christmas. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things then.

Block Colour



Oooops kind of been awol lately.

Let me update you. I had Tonsillitis twice in the space of 3 weeks and I knitted a scarf!


The scarf is made from Pickles Summer Wool. I bought it probably a year ago but couldn't decide what to make with it. I'm very happy with this. Now I just have to get through summer to wear it!
