knitting with leftover yarn

knitting and crocheting with left over yarns

this gorgeous knitting and crocheting book i got for my birthday - in fact just the cover photo spoke loads to me when i saw it at the bookstore many months ago, for obvious reasons, and my mum bought it 'you'll get it when you get it'. i had kind of forgotten about it so it was a brilliant parcel to open yesterday.

brimming with new and old ideas with a twist, fabulously creative and with gorgeous photos. i basically want to make everything in it. with leftover yarns. love it!

skirt on cover photo is a must. and those yellow shoes... le sigh.

~ luxurious afternoon tea
~ sunshine
~ a pair of boots/shoes in a fantastic new colour (they'll arrive next week)
~ nailpolish
~ contemplating bobbaloos
~ small sweet things
~ a december trip to budapest (excitement!)

yes, i think it was an overall lovely birthday this year too (although, getting older isn't nearly as fun as getting wiser...).

now, let the scrap yarn projects begin!

That sounds like a birthday full of love, magic and some wonderful presents. And getting older is much better than the alternative.

I thought you had written a book - I totally thought that was you on the cover, what with the skirt and the shoes and all! Would love to see the skirt when you're finished with it. =)
