It’s been interesting juggling a lot of work hours, Christmas prep, and Christmas crafting; it’s lead to finding some fun projects to work on in a small amount of time! Like today’s project, a cute knitted bobble hat!
Knitting is still a great chillout project for me, so this was nice to knit over an evening after work. Along with scarves, and mittens, hats are a great Chrismas present, and a really easy handmade gift, for beginners or experienced knitters alike!
News! We were given National Trust membership as a gift for Stu’s Birthday which is perfect when I’d already decided to share some more of our days out! Cornwall has many National Trust gardens and properties, and we can’t wait to explore! First up – Trelissick!
Unfortunately many are closed until March, but Trelissick is open this month, and conveniently is the nearest National Trust property to us!
This week, we were lucky with a lovely sunny day; and we decided to make the most of it, with the first -of many I’m sure- National Trust walk!
Ah, knitting the Doctor Who scarf. This is something I know a thing or two about by now…
Ah the Doctor Who scarf, made famous of course by the Fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker.
There are patterns readily available for free online (Just google it) and this particular story begins when a colleague was making one a few years ago. I thought it looked pretty simple, and therefore I thought I’d have a go; because my brother is a huge Doctor Who fan! I’d just started knitting at the time, and it really is a simple project.
Starting the year as I mean to go on! Sharing some of our days out, and what we get up to when we’re not busy working or chilling at home! To begin the year on a crisp afternoon, we headed to Trebah Garden!
At the beginning of January, in between all of the rain(!) there was a brief sunny day, and we decided to make the most of it; and check out somewhere, quite nearby here in Cornwall, that we’d never been before.
This year I was looking for some fun festive craft projects, and today I thought I’d share a tutorial for these cute sock snowmen!
I’ve seen a few sock snowman projects over the last couple of years, and really wanted to make them, but never got around to it. Part of it was the thought that these things aren’t as easy as they look! I’m sure we’ve all been there, right?
These are EASY! I made these two in one evening. They’re incredibly cute, and extremely versatile, I’m sure you can find many alternatives with a simple Google search, but I stuck with the traditional snowman.
