Sunday Spotlight

So now the Prosseco has worn off I thought I would get my Sunday Spotlight post together. 

First of all, Happy Mother’s day all! Hope you all had a lovely day πŸ™‚ Lily and Daddy got me this…

My cousin also got some beautiful pictures of Lily at my Grandmother’s today – the dress is Monsoon but brought from a charity shop!

1. Fog knits – WIP Wednesday March Madness

Firstly this week I would like to thank Fog Knits for making me feel that my multi wip state of being is not abmormal. 

She also has some beautiful wips on the needles and the hooks going at the moment – so go and have a nose if you need some inspiring!

  2. A Tangled Yarn Knitter – Cast on: Another baby Sophisticate

This baby cardigon looks like a super simple knit. Ideal for a baby knit -especially as it’s a free Ravelry download – as they just grow so quickly!!!

This lovely blogger has this as one of their staple knits (they’ve knitted it 8 times already!!!) and I think it’ll be somethink I might come back to when Lily is at the point where she’s running through muddy puddles! 

Although the pattern is pretty simplistic I think you could play with it a little and add additional details. 

3. Chronicle of ellen – Who Wore it Better?

Now this post really got the fire back under me to want to try Crochet again. I have a plan is place… so I’ll update you all later as it progresses. 

This story goes that the knitting bunting wasn’t working, but the crochet one did. I think the ability to do both disiplines would really help expand the potential of the yarn. 
4. Dartmoor yarns – In need of colour Good Vibrations

This post introduced me to a new technique – German Short Rows. I love the yarn and the scarf design… Seriously… go and have a look!

β™‘ Rainbow yarn!
5.  Erika Eckles – Naked knitting and these Sheepy Aromas

A really interesting rewiew on natural undyed british sheep yarn. Really worth a read!

 I’m really trying to understand more of the theory behind knitting, so blogs like this always make me sit up for a read.

So that’s it for me this Sunday πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the fantastic blogs this week!

Love to you all
