What’s Next On My Needles
I have been thinking about what to make next in my knitting journey.
There is indeed too much to choose from when it comes to fabulous knitting patterns.
How do you choose?
Do you fall in love with a particular yarn and then find a pattern to suit?
Or do you see a knitwear design and work on that?
Please share with me in the comments, any tips you have to make the decision easier.
Crafty Tools – Making Your Everyday Better
With my recent experience of knitting with 100% baby alpaca yarn from Wool and The Gang, I am keen to try other baby Alpaca Yarns.
The next time I will remember not to accidentally machine wash it!!
I noticed on KnitPicks that they have some discounted Alpaca Cloud Lace Yarn.
This yarn is also 100% baby alpaca.
There are so many colors to choose from 🙂
Check them out here.
Crafty Top 10
Do you give yourself permission to simply stop and take time for yourself?
Perhaps ‘your time’ is when you craft, I hope this is so.
I love the quote above because it encourages me to get out in nature and enjoy the beauty.
Do you love watching the falling leaves too?
Here’s your dose of craftiness for this week…

Keep Warm In The Cooler Weather
Having a warm bed to climb into in the colder weather is always pleasurable.
Or just sitting on the couch with the heating pad on your tummy.
