My world has been craft free for a while. Going back to university, becoming president of the Glasgow University Gaming Society, uni reading, moving house, reading more, essay hand ins…
In fact, I hadn’t picked up any sort of crochet hook or knitting needle until January! And it’s good to do it again.
I’ve been learning how to knit properly- working on lace patterns and will work up to cabling. It’s fun! My sister gave me the Cath Kidson knitting roll and it’s given me the burst to learn different types of knitting.
So… this is me warning about the number of knitting posts and pictures of ammeter lace, cables and all sorts that will coming up! It’s nice to be back. I’ve missed youse.
So autumn is well and truly in, lets wrap up and hit the library.
This week I’m loving this film reel inspired scarf by AZURE KNITS+, I’m finding it simple but stiking.
The pattern itself has good reviews, the photos show off the scarf perfectly.
Me? I’m bundled in as many scarves as possible because it does not matter how warm or cold it is outside, in the library its hella cold once you sit on your backside reading books for hours… I complain, but I love it really. 😉
I’m off to Study!

This week I’m gearing up for University term going back! I can’t wait! Books, lectures, reading lists, classes about magical creatures… Ok maybe that last one isn’t true but I think this bracelet was too cute not to have a link in sentence.
This lovely Pattern by Tiny Owl Knits is an intricate piece of craft, incorporating knitting and jewelry craft and more importantly, caring. This project isn’t just a lovely pattern, this is a whole zen ‘life changing’ project created to guide you into doing nice things for others.
The concept is lovely, you earn your charms by doing nice things for others, the environment, animals and the ones you love. Only once completing a task can you knit your charm and add it to your bracelet.
It makes the charm bracelet mean more to you, making lovely memories and being really special.
ThreadCetera will be making one! The lovely Cia Jackson over at Red Head Knits will be my knitting companion on this journey through stitches I have never tried and we will be blogging our progress in pictures! I, for one, am the most excited crafter! See what Cia has to say about it here.
