A family affair

My family is very crafty and arty.

My hubby is a fantastic artist and a great musician.
My son is very interested in architecture and 3D graphics.
My daughter is crafty and loves singing and dancing.

My sister MiA is an amazing fibre artist.
I really recommend a visit to her blog, Minspiration,
it gives you heaps of inspiration.

And my mum is very crafty too. 
She has just visited us for a couple of weeks 
and look what she whipped up from sheep skin 
and hand-dyed yarn!

I couldn't make up my mind about the colours, 
so asked her for a mix on mine.

These are for my daughter who loves green and purple!

These slippers are soft and warm
and an absolute dream to wear!

Mira with a mo

Totally off topic for this blog,
but today I'm sharing a photo of my
beautiful, creative, hilarious, clever 
and absolutely gorgeous daughter.

I love you the mostest!

Pretty in pink

Today I received a lovely email from a lady who bought a skein of
Happy-go-knitty BFL sock yarn a few weeks ago. She has crochet
these beautiful socks for her gorgeous little daughter!

Pretty socks for a pretty girl!

Thanks for sharing, Kara!

Stripy yarn

I have been dyeing stripy sock yarn for 6 months now
and it's proving very popular.


Stripy yarn is so handy, you get stripy socks
without having to do all the ends! 

A couple of weeks ago I dyed some 8ply merino stripy.


And I have now had a little play with making fingerless mittens.
They are still lacking the thumb part, but they will soon be finished.

I will have them ready-made and as a kit (yarn and pattern),
if you would like to knit your own ones.
