Bday Pressy for Mum

This is my first attempt at doing lace work and I think it turned out ok. There are a humungous amount of errors but I think I got away with it. Found the yarn in Lidls! Pattern is here

Industrial revolution?

So over 4 years ago, I pinched my mum's knitting machine. It has been squeezed up in a corner of the spare room all that time. I made it one of my new year's resolutions to crank it up and learn how to use it. This weekend I managed to get it working but I can't say it was an enjoyable expereince - just when I thought things were going well it would drop a load of stitches and make a whooping great hole. I've decided its only really use is for making yarn bombing peices.

Just give peas a chance!

Somthing rather exciting may be happening at the end of June, but I can't shout about it until a contract has been signed. There will be more info to follow. In preparation I have been knitting up lots of little things to sell at this particular event. Here are some peas!
