I made this scarf out of some wool I bought at the Knitting and Stitching show in Dublin a couple of years ago. I knitted it in a night! Then I knitted up a nice little rose to jazz it up a little and I must say that I'm rather pleased with the result. The wool was a little difficult to work with. Good tension proved to be quite a struggle to achieve. But I love the texture the uneven wool creates!
So I shall continue to alternate between digesting legal waffle and working on my lovely scarf! Hope you have a wonderful day!
Below are some bows I made as a gift for my lovely mum. She has amazing thick long brown hair and I have tried to use colour combinations that would suit it. The bows are attached to hair slides and made using ribbon from Rubanesque and Hickey's. If you haven't already died and gone to heaven as a result of the absolutely stunning stock at Rubanesque (Powerscourt Centre, Dublin) you need to get yourself into that shop... quickly! I'd go as far as to say it is the most inspiring shop I have every been in. EVER. My only complaint with them would be that their prices are a bit high (especially for the impoverished student) But there is no place with the quality and selection they have so it seems worth the cost. They have a big selection of photos at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Rubanesque-Ltd/76754714791#/pages/A-Rubanesque-Ltd/76754714791?v=photos.
Baby blue and brown bow,

Little bit of crochet today. Just started these cute little flowers. The plan is to make a load of them and stitch them together using some antique lace as a little border to make a lacy scarf.... more photos soon. Nat.
This project unleashed a Bríd obsession with crafting make-up bags. Armed with my newfound lining and zipping skills... There was nothing to stop me... Be prepared for a torrent of make-up bag posts. Hahaha!
Also, Snuzzle-Cat The Second has been knitted... All he needs is some sewing up and then he'll be ready for some snuggling and nuzzling! Pictures coming soon...
Have a great day. Love Brid x
