Visual Audit part I

More to come, but I felt that as I am having a fairly productive day I should start documenting all my knitting projects. Normally I make for pressies and forget to photograph them. Well that's got to change! My good camera is charging and the sun just set, so will carry on my task tomorrow.

I want/need/want want want

Oh wow how gorgeous. I mean, wow.

American designers Anthropologie opened their first European shop in London in October. I'll be back up in London in two weeks and I know where I'll be heading! Click on entry title to get to their website.

This may inspire me to use my newly acquired french knitting machine! My mum had it when she was a little girl growing up in Sweden.

Oliver Critter

I had quite an experience at the hairdressers on Friday, and have now been left with very little to cover my ears. Luckily, this little critter turned out a charm and has cheered me right up. I don't think he's right for the intended recipient, so Reginald will have to stay here with me. This is not a selfish decision I promise! (Well maybe a bit, but only because I don't think he's their kind of fella - thats the problem with making things, you get too attached!) I'll be whipping up some uber cute baby booties over the weekend, so won't go empty handed on visiting day!

Purl Bee

Love love LOVE this website, full of inspirational, gorgeous projects in gorgeous materials. I'm working on this for a friend's new born beautiful girl - working it in white, hoping for a quirky polar bear ghost.

We're not there yet, but here's a cheeky sneaky peek at one of the first kits and the website design so far. Watch this space...
