Top to Toe Swap.

I am so lucky, I received my Top to Toe swap this morning. Susanne from Susanne's house of wool sent me a gorgeous headband, 100gm of her hand dyed yarn, 4 stitch markers and some chocolates! Swaps are so much fun!

My swap I sent out arrived as well so I thought I might post a pick of the headband I made. I did a calorimetry with some yummy Noro.

I have also received the February sock club from Tangled Yarns FKA Dyelicious. The yarn is divine and we also got a envirosax bag in a cool watermelon colour (I have been wanting one for ages) and in keeping with the Valentines theme a choccy heart.

Immy's horse.

I decided on making a horse for Imogen's birthday. She loves it, so good choice! I enjoy making felt animals, the felt was wet felted a while ago.

I finished my 'Top to Toe' swap and sent it off, hopefully it will reach its destination soon............
I am still working on socks with the January sock club yarn, starting to get nervous that my yarn will run out!! I seriously do not want to frog after all the work I have put in!!! Fingers crossed.
I also sent in an assignment today. Woohoo! I really cant wait until I have finished all this study!!

Little seal

I made this little felt seal back in November for laura's birthday. I just never seem to have time to blog! I have to make another felt animal for Imogen's birthday which is on Monday. Just trying to decide between a horse or a cat...........................

I have made a headband for the Top to toe swap at woolaholics which I need to post off. Great swap idea , we had to make a headband and send some hand-dyed sock wool to our swapee. I loved it because the project was quick enough for me to fit in!

I am so run off my feet with study, work and family my crafting time has reduced and I am really missing it.

I am halfway through a sock which I am using the Jolly Jumbuck December sock club from yarn collective and want to get started on another pair with the Yarn cafe January sock club yarn. Which reminds me the february sock club from Dyelicious will be turning up anytime now too! I love wooly mail, makes me so happy!
