a first attempt at blogging...

I'm starting this blog in order to try to keep my "creative" side alive
my hope is that by posting project plans and progress as I go I'll manage to keep things ticking over, well more so than I normally do at least, I guess we'll see...

so, I went to the Knittin'n'Stitchin show at Alexandra Palace last weekend and bought some yarn (or "wool" as my mother would have said)

the plan was to make a teacosy and a scarf and then see what else unfurled itself from my imagination

have managed the teacosy so far and am quite proud of that as having not knit anything in about two years I managed it in two evenings in front of the TV, and had great fun with a Loopy stitch at the top

it's a little small for my big green teapot and a little big for my small spotty teapot - think I feel a spot of middle sized teapot shopping coming on...

let's see if I can get a picture or two up

I'm overwhelmed by the speed of your creativity! I've made two bears but unfortunately they have no eyes, no nose and no mouth....

Welcome to blogland - I'm fairly new to all this too but am a regular 'Crafty' MNetter.

I love the teacosy, especially the loopy bits.
