So this week I completed my green scarf from last week.

I finished the picot edging along the long lengths and did a scalloped edging at the ends.

I then started my next scarf. I had some lovely 'sirdar' yarn called Escape, which has some beautiful tones to it, and I chose to work in cell stitch, to add some texture.

My concentration hasnt been too good though, so I ended unravelling as much as I was knitting!

I had decided on knitting some scarves to bulk out my craft stall, and to use up some of the nice yarns that I have had stored away. But sadly the restrictions of retail in the christmas season has put paid to me doing any craft fairs which i'm very frustrated about. So I ground to a hault as I lost my focus to what I was working towards.

After watching the first episode of 'Kirsties' latest series i've now decided to focus on 'our' home. Actually make things for us, and brighten up the space around us. This will also ensure that the crafting will be more relaxing and leisurely, rather than working to deadlines, which I definately need at this hectic season. I can still photograph these pieces and put them up on Etsy.
I've not decided what the first project will be as yet, so join me another time to see where the journey will lead to next....


  1. Sometimes I think we forget about our homes in the rush to create things to sell, so I can't wait to see what you come up with. xxx

  2. Not to worry! It's very rewarding to do something for yourself occasionally :) Enjoy!

  3. I really love the edging that you have put on the first scarf. I hope your crafting is relaxing - I look forward to seeing what you make.

  4. It sounds a great plan to make things for your home and I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Enjoy it! x

  5. I like the shades of green in your scarf. The crochet decorations will look very festive hung up too!

  6. Your picot edging is lovely. That sirdar wool is gorgeous I'd love to get my hands on it, the colours are lovely.
