The start of the new school year is also a sign that autumn is on it's way and it is nearly time to get the wooly's out - cardigans, jumpers, hats, mittens and scraves! Hooray! It is heaven for knitters and crocheters as we can finally wear all the items we have been making during summer.
I recently bought the Complete Guide to Knitting and Crochet by Nikki Trench after it was recommended to me by a friend. It is a great book and has lots of information on the history of knitting and crochet, yarn, basic stitches and more complicated ones as well as a good number of modern patterns.
I have already crocheted hats (one for me in Noro Silk Garden and one for a Christmas present) and am currently working on the Frill Shawl in a gorgeous teal King Cole Haze Glitter. I have plans for other projects in the book to! It is well worth getting and I bought my copy for £1.51 on Amazon and I have seen it in Asda and The Works to.

This coming weekend, 3rd September, I am involved in something rather exciting in the blogging world - my first blog hop! All I am going to tell you is that it is all linked to Art from the Heart's 10th Birthday celebrations and includes a bit of a competition. Check my blog on the 3rd of September from 10am for more exctiting details.
