My first pair of Socks!

I was inspired by this book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee to try my hand at knitting a pair of socks.

I decided they would make a great gift for my Mom cause she'd appreciate the work I put into them, so off I went to Arthur Bales and found the most gorgeous soft cashmere wool. I didn't want anything itchy on my Mom's feet!

Then I found this beautiful pattern on Ravelry called Francie which called for knitting with 4/5 needles...eek!!!

But all's well that ends well, they didn't turn out perfect but I was happy with my first attempt at socks, and Mom seemed pretty happy when she opened her pressie while we were on holiday :D

Adios Amigos!!!

I am officially on holiday WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
I'll see you guys on the flipside!

Sadly I run on such an outdated version of Microsoft that I can't even set up an "Out of Office" on my e-mail account, so I apologise in advance if anyone e-mails me and doesn't realise I'm away. However there is a note on my website as well as at the top of this blog so hopefully I won't upset too many people!

Anyone wanting to enquire/order is still welcome to e-mail me during this time, and I will respond as soon as I can on my return!

Whatnots will be closed from the 18th - 28th November 2011, all orders placed and/or paid for during this time will only be processed from the 29th November and the 2 week turnover period will apply from then, unless otherwise discussed.

Other than that I've been a bit too busy to do much with my Blythes, although they have been marvellous company in the studio, very supportive and not critical in any way ;)

I did however get a few bits and bobs and thought I'd snap a few pics of them showing off some of their new shoe wardrobe!

Vanilla showing off her funky boots & tights
Vinter in a felt dress I made and some rocking boots!
Chocolate is casual in her knee highs & docs!
See you guys soon!!!!!!

Another sweet star

Family Circles

Two family circles stamped with the typewriter font!

They are basically finished, just want to find out if the crystal should be attached to the pendant to hang in the center of it (as pictured with pendant on the left) or if it should remain separate so it can be slid on and off the chain at will (as pictured on the right).

Let me know what you think?
