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!
Whats your favorite film?

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.
Her latest designs are the Graduand Scarf and the Wandering Fae Cowl, both of which I’ve downloaded and can’t wait to get started!
The Graduand Scarf
The Wandering Faw Cowl
She is inspired by her own university life, times and tends to knit things when she should be studying. Fair enough I suppose.
The Graduand Scarf has been made available for free right now just to get you hooked on her work and the lovely Wandering Faw Cowl is only £1! Stock up! Even better, if you go an visit her face to face in the Yarn Cake and make the relevant yarn purchase for the pattern, the pattern comes free! What better excuse to buy more yarn!
Now I haven’t watched a lot of Avatar. However my manpal is a fan, he watched quite a bit of the season with Korra in it with me. He likes to think about what sort of bender he is, he settled on earth- big, strong, calm, forceful. He decided I was fire- passionate, quick to emotion, angry.
Little Big Planet is one of the happiest games I’ve played and sackboy is up there as being the cutest.
I love seeing Sackboy all dressed up as Iron Man or a wizard or ghost. It’s adorable.
Amigurumi designer Emjay Bailey has got to be one of the most talented of people. Her website Nerdgurumi (click for link) hosts a plethora of cute, strange, geeky, awesome designs that are constantly being pinned onto Pintrest by yours truly =3
I’ve tried a few of her things before and they always turn out awesome.
The book is marvellous! It has so many quick and easy to follow projects, Judith has put a glossary of all stitches at the back and links you back to them when anything new crops up. The patterns themselves are lovely, not basic dull patterns but much more intricate patterns that take into account those times when you see that lovely patterned ball of wool that for some reason you only buy one of.

I completed the Lelya cowl pattern that was completed in rounds. I used Sidar Montana merino wool in the red/blue/green. My boyfriend had bought me a previous shade of the same wool that had crocheted up really nicely before so I was dying to try something new with it.
The Lelya cowl worked a combination of single crochet, half double and slip stitches. It was the easiest =3
