Beanie Fever...

Yes... I have made yet another BEANIE!!! I just can't stop, I'm hooked. Yesterday morning I finished a cute little brown beanie with what is supposed to be a butterfly motif on the front.
I've also started another beanie in the same pattern (the pattern that I posted last week from Sara With an H's Blog), I really need a new pattern!!! My sister made my daughter 2 adorable beanie's the other day (pic to the left of page), isn't she just so clever!! She said that she had me a copy of the book that she got the patterns from for me, so I can't wait to get stuck into that!
While I was surfing around the net today I came across the most unbelievable online wool/knitting shop ever!!! It is called The Wool Shack and you can find it here....


I bought a heap of stuff including some divine sock yarn (not that I will be making socks out of it) by Jawoll in a delicious colour called cookies and cream.... Heavenly!!!

Today's 'Get Happy Now' Tip #12 - Step Outside. Try to get 10 to 15 mins of sunlight a day. It stimulates a hormone known to prevent seasonal blues.

  2. Your beanies are gorgeous, they're a nice quick project and kinda addictive aren't they?
