The Bell Jar Book Review

These past few months I’m sure you’ve noticed I’ve been on an ENORMOUS reading mission. It started as just an innocent get these out dated reads finished but I’ve also ended up buying more books to add to the book pile.

The Wedding Day.

I figured whilst I’m having some quiet time over my Three Mint tea I’d share with you the recent family wedding from a few weekends ago.
We travelled down South on the Friday afternoon to be with Wills mum and partner Tony to share the weekend with them to celebrate their Wedding day.

Book List!

These past couple of weeks have been very busy and hectic and rather than making it busier I’ve taken the chance in pursuing some reading.

Fizz Test Knit, Part 4.

Fizz Test Knit, Part 4.

Well we come to the Final part and 4th of my Fizz Test Knit series. I should have posted this onto the blog last week but I was lazy and put it aside for one week I’ve been wanting to make headway with a book I’m reading and so it was priority number one last week. I’m not far away from the end so I figured before the weekends reading takes hold I’d finish the posts on the Fizz Test Knit, I don’t…

Ardence

Ardence beautiful new pattern by OwlPrintPanda

Just another quick post to show my appreciation of the crafting world. I found this gorgeous pattern yesterday pop up on my Twitter feed. At one point I was never too keen on Twitter and I joined it when it first came out but then stopped using it because I didn’t catch on to all the hype and usefulness that Twitter has of passing on snippets of info, dates or thoughts. I re-joined in the fun…

Fizz Test Knit, Part 3.

Fizz Test Knit, Part 3. Check out how my test knitting for Andi Satterlund. x

So where did I leave it on Part 2 of the test knitting? Well I believe I’d done the edging and encased the elastic and joined both edges of my provisional together the next stage of the pattern was to work short rows to shape the top to fit around the curve of the bust.


I’ve mentioned on a previous post about my Chickadee Sweater that I’d learnt a trick to make that little wrap stitch nub…

Last Weekend I Gave You My Heart

That’s right I’m referring too Christine I gave her my heart and soul last weekend and soon as I’m busy at work my evening reading goes slightly south again.

Fizz Test Knit, Part 2.

Back for the second part and update of my Fizz test knit I hope!
After reading through the pattern instructions and having all my materials prepared I worked on the first section, which is the waistband. At this point all I really needed to remind myself was how to provisionally cast on. It’s something I don’t come across very often when I’m knitting a pattern but it’s a great skill to learn…
