Creating Not Blogging!

Yes unfortunately when I fall off the face of the earth it means one thing that I am busy with my needles and wool! I have been filling up Shazzas Knits Etsy shop with lots of goodies so to save on picture load here, if you want to check out the latest head on over there and take a peek.

There has been plenty of personal knitting also, firstly there is a Panta for my SIL, she saw mine and wanted one for herself so finally here it is.

Next we have a Muse Hat that I made to wear to the football to watch my beloved North Melbourne play, in their colours of course.

I also discovered a new book and yummy wool put out by the people at
Cleckheaton. Yes their Vintage Hues range has got me in quite a spin and I am loving everything in this book and the wool is just so beautiful with its subtle colour changes. I feel like I am revisiting the 1980's working in entrelac as it was quite dominant in jumpers and vests back then. I clearly remember making Mr Brickie a vest in blue, black and grey entrelac. Anyway this is the starting of my Vintage Hues jacket which you may be surprised to see has a bit of maroon which is surely a purple shade but it is a colour I can live with as it is not the purple that I dislike with a passion, hehe!

So as you can see I have been having a lot of fun with my needles and what better way to spend the cold winter days and nights, till next time happy knitting.
