Just a quick blog update

I haven’t updated my blog for a while. Life has been busy with us trying to get our house for ready for our baby. I have also been given a blog award which really made me smile so i will be doing a special post soon!

Hopefully i will have time to sit and type soon!


Baby booties..or booty really!


I haven’t gone completely baby mad just yet but I have finished 2 more baby things since my last post. As you can see above it’s something knitted!! It’s very rare that I get knitting needles out as I’m just not very good at it! Want to see?!


One baby booty!! And yes, only one at the moment, I’m still recovering from deciphering the knitting pattern!

Just before the booty fiasco I came across this pattern on Ravelry. My Dad mentioned that if I were to make my new born wear this particular item of clothing he felt he would need to inform social services….how rude! I thought it was super cute! What do you think?


Yup! It’s an owl hat with tassles!!!

So that’s what I’ve been up too, inbetween being ill, I managed to catch a bug but feeling better now. Hope all you Mummy’s are looking forward to Mother’s Day – very strange to think that will be me too next year!!

Happy crafting!

I am going to be a Mummy!!

Eeeeek!! Very exciting news to share with you. Our sprog has caused every kind of emotion to flood my body these past few weeks but I am now brave enough to say the M word which makes it very real!

As some of you know we live in a lovely Victorian house which we are renovating. Due to sprog this is now going full steam ahead which is mad and stressful but I will so happy when our home is more baby safe… just think, I will have carpets!!!!! Amazing..

The other thing we realised is how much stuff something so small needs, so we have been trawlling the charity shops to see what we can pick up andmy crochet hook has been busy inbetween feeling pukey.


Finished ripply blanket for sprog!!

I’m currently looking through ravelry to find neutral baby things to make. I found a lovely crocheted hat in the shape of an owl but it uses bulky yarn, something which I don’t have, might need to do a shopping trip..

If anyone has any patterns they have found online could you let me know? A lot of baby stuff is beautifully knitted and although I can knit the baby will probably be 11 by the time I finish! If only I was a fast knitter!!

So there we go, I’m going to be a Mummy!
