Knitter and New Mum

A keen knitter and stay at home mum of Keira my little angel. I spend my days looking after her, shopping for her, cleaning up after her and in between all of that knitting and cooking and looking after my lovely husband Justin.

not bad for first effort!

well these are my first attempt at stitch markers and I'm pretty happy with them just need to work on the ends and wrapping them tighter around the top!!! any tips would be appreciated!

I came home today from the gym to find not 1 not 2 but 3 parcels - my wool from ebay- yeah! love them all but not sure on one wool, its opal petticoat 1339 so think they'll be socks to give away - does anyone have a good sock pattern they can recommend!!!!

well keira is resting and I'm about to clean the house, what fun for a wednesday afternoon!

    Wow, yours look awesome. I am afraid you may be a little disappointed with mine! They are much simpler and only have one bead. Oh well. I have a reference now as to what I can do better - I will just look at your blog and copy!!

    I think I listed a good sock pattern on my sidebar under free patterns (may be on the "I'm a joiner" Page) - can't remember. Stitch markers look cute

    ooooh parcels from eBay - my favourite! I might have to have a look for some Opal for myself...If you haven't done socks before you might like to try a simple stocking stitch pattern, you should be able to find heaps on the web - they are not nearly as hard as I thought they'd be. Have fun!

    Just found your blog through the lace swap. Your baby is very cute and I think your stitch markers are great.
    It has taken me over 2hrs to go through all the blogs on the list.
