As time flies

It was my birthday on the 13th September, the big 2-0, I'm no longer a teenager!
My lovely Craig bought me a knitting book with gorgeous patterns for pets! I will definately be trying some of these out.

I'm back at uni now, so my knitting time has been cut short. Though I shall probably take it with me anyway. I also have had less knitting time in the last couple of weeks as I got addicted to Charlaine Harris's books (True Blood and the 'Grave' books) I read them one after another, they're just so good.

Also I finally got to see season6 of LOST! That chapter of my life is now complete I guess, but my dearest Craig hasn't seen them, so starting this weekend we'll be starting from the beginning, as I knit to the sounds of the Island.

I'm very excited, now the Deathly Hallows pt1 trailer is out, I really can't wait to see it!

I think that's all for now, so peace out and keep your needles clicking!

Lauren's Hat

A little hat I've knitted for my cousin's baby girl (and my goddaughter) for Christmas.
As modelled by my mom's doll.

The pattern is from Let's Get Crafting Issue 20 Baby Knits. It's only taken a few hours.

The yarn is lovely, a pink self striping Panache DK shade 483

Didn't use up as much to make as I thought it would.

Leonardo TMNT

I knitted him for my lovely boyfriend who has idolised Leo since he was just a little child (awww)


I changed the shell pattern as I wasn't too keen on the tiny shell.

Craig loves it.

A little birdie

A wee lil birdie!

Stash buster and I got the pattern here:

I'll probably be doing most of these patterns in the near future.

As soon as I knit this bird, literally sewing on it's tail, my nephew pinched it from me. So a crappy photo, I aplogise.

Hat Dilemma

Here's the situation.... My adorable nephew, Brandon, wants me to knit him a hat. I know that ear flap hats suit him (as he wore my Snitch hat as soon as I made it, cheeky bugger). I also think that a nice Norwegian style would work best.

I've been searching for patterns for inspiration, I want to knit him something personal and fun, but also something that wont embarrass the almost-12-year-old that he is.

Any help or advice on knitting charts etc would be great.
