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.

Oh the Vintage Hues yarn looks lovely. I will have to try and find a copy of that book. I have never knit entralac before but it does look intriguing. I am sure your jacket will turn out beautifully too.

The Panta is as close as I get toa hat!!! Poly looks great in them both, as I am sure you do!!!
Oh how I wish the Vintage Hues were more green, not that I haven't got a bazillion balls of green wool, but you never know......

I love knitting during winter too especially if it's raining. Love all your lovely hats.

Sure sounds like you've been busy! I have been busy myself - getting ready to go to Korea for a year (to teach English as a second language). I've not been getting much knitting done, but I'm sure that will change soon...

Of course the hats look lovely, and Polly looks grand modeling them. :-)

The entrelac looks really great, I've only done swatches but I think the jacket will be snazzy.

Great to see you again!! You have been missed.

The hats are fabulous and Panta on Poly is Perfect.
And the Entrlac is beautiful! I love how the colors melt together.

The purpley...or not purple thing looks GREAT. Will it really turn into the cardy thing?
