Needles Thursday (finally)

Yes I finally got to go back to my Needles & Natter Knitting group this morning!

I've had to miss the last 4 weeks or so due to work but it was so nice to get back and see everyone! One of our members, Margaret, turned 80 today so we had a lovely lemon drizzle cake to celebrate with her.

Despite it being my day off I did have to run into work for a conference call halfway through the knitting session so I don't have much to show for my efforts, I started another triangle and I almost have it finished, just trying to work out what I'm going to do with them all when I'm all triangled out! :)

Crochet hooky goodness continued after I got home as I pulled out my anything goes blanket and added a few more squares, (the 4 on the right hand side of the picture) I've decided to start the next strip of 5 round squares before making the first strip any bigger.

That's all for now, the weather is set to be sunny and warm as we head into the weekend, perfect crafting weather but sadly I shall be working so won't really be able to enjoy it!

Hope you all  have fantastic weekends whatever the weather and whatever you're doing :)

WIP Wednesday :)

So the weather over the weekend was lovely and sunny here in the UK, sadly I was working the entire time and by the time I had a day off on Tuesday the rain had returned.

Spent a lot of time this week listing things on eBay, made a few sales so far so fingers crossed that will continue as I have a few things to pay this month (like the car tax...)

In between listings I have managed to get some hooky time in, here's what I've been working on

Uber mini granny squares! Hooked up using Stylecraft Special DK in 'Lucy colours', I'm planning on making a very mini granny blanket followed by a matching proper sized blanket :)
Also been hooking up triangles using the granny bunting pattern Lucy @ Attic24 posted up last week,
not sure what to do with them yet, I'm just having fun playing with some bright summery colours, helps distract from the wet grey skies here at the minute!!
Hope the sun is shining where you are!!

Sunday Stitchings

Dear god has it really been a few weeks since I posted last? Time flies when you're not paying attention!!

Rather than try and remember why I haven't posted I shall simply update you all as to what I have been up to this week....

Super Mario finally saw a needle and thread this week in honour of Monochrome May and after a week of stitching in the evenings rather un-surprisingly I can see some decent progress!!

I've started a couple of new crochet projects, but nothing much worthwhile showing yet.

This weekend has been spent mostly listing things on Ebay. Mostly Pokémon cards, dolls and some Barbie stuff I've been meaning to list for ages now :) Going quite well but I still have lots to list!!

Hope your weekends are more craft filled than mine!

Sunday stitchings

Today I have nothing to show, mostly because I haven't picked up any sort of needle since Wednesday.

Work has been so busy the last couple of days, so much to do in so little time but in a week or so that should calm back down :)

Hoping to continue working on my blanket this week & I'm planning on taking my sock into work as it's easy to knit a couple of rounds on my lunch breaks.

For Monochrome May I have decided to try and finish the green background on Super Mario (that's most of pages 3 & 4) But god knows how long that will last!

Happy Crafting
