my creative space: more woolly goodness

I have been crocheting up a storm using my lovely 'Sublime' Merino wool from the Tauranga Knitting Centre. It feels so soft and the colours are just gorgeous! I'm going to make a blanket using these colours.
We're off the Raglan for the long weekend so I've a got a couple of things ready to pack...a copy of Country Living UK Magazine and my crochet supplies.  I'm using the lovely zip purse Jennie from A Little Vintage sent me as part of a giveaway prize- it's the perfect size for a bit of crochet- thanks again Jennie! I even took my crochet to the car testing place yesterday when I got my warrant-it was nice to have something to do while waiting.
My new knitting/crochet mania means I am really coveting this print at the moment- its from the very talented designer Colleen from Dear Colleen.  I am also loving yellow at the moment so it's perfect really! 
And if you are still to catch the knitting bug or a beginner like me but you really want some knitted goodies for your little ones the clever Jo from Cherubkids on Trademe sells gorgeous slippers and hats in lots of scrummy colours (and very reasonably priced too!) I have asked for a pair of adult ones tee hee! 

To see what's been happening in other creative spaces today head over to Kirsty's here 
Have a lovely cosy weekend:)

Yay for you for learning a new skill! Crocheting is great because you can do it in front of the TV etc.
Keep it up! You'll have to try crochet flowers! They are fun (and addictive!)

Those slippers really are quite divine aren't they!
And I love the colours you've chosen for your blanket.

I am also loving crochet at the moment and the portableness of it. I am making one huge granny square that just keeps going and going, and will eventually be a blanket for my daughter. I need to get/make a cute little purse like that to carry it around in! Have a great long weekend :)

Hi!!!
I am a blogger from Wellington NZ and it's nice to "meet" you! I'm rather excited about finding a blogger from home who is also passionate about crochet to the point that you take it on outings! Love it! Will be checking in on your blog for sure :)

I've gotten as far as buying a crochet needle hmmm but I have started to knit. I'm not that patient when it comes to making things but I think granny squares could be a good place to start. Hopefully the weather in Raglan isn't as bad as it is in Auckland!
