So I really need to get back on the blogging horse! Hoping that picking up with challenge will help me get back in the swing of things… Day 15: What was your least favourite pattern and why? It seems kind of … Continue reading
Hope you all had a nice Easter! I’m currently working away on a couple of commissions of projects I’ve posted before (monkey and giraffe, anyone?) so don’t have any interesting WIPs to share with you at the moment 😦 I … Continue reading
Day 13: Do you have yarn that you love but can’t find a project for? (I haven’t done one of these knitting challenge posts for nearly a month – oops!) As you can probably see from my yarn stash post, I … Continue reading
Day 12: Where do you keep your stash? Post pictures! Everywhere! My house is amidst a de-clutter so ignore the slightly messy elements… My Mum saved this from her neighbours who were going to chuck it away. It’s a bit, erm, … Continue reading

I would say probably around two weeks. The first few days were brutal and I had more than one hissy fit trying to get my hands, eyes and brain to coordinate with the needles and yarn.
