The 5th Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week begins today! I can't believe I nearly missed it but luckily, I spotted a few posts on Twitter this morning. It is a week of blogging from knitters and crocheters and a chance for bloggers to explore different ways of blogging. I've read all the post themes and can promise that this years themes are as fantastic as ever! If you want to join in the take a peek at the wonderful Eskimimi Makes blog or, if you just want to read the posts, search for the post tags below!
5KCBWDAY1 - A Day In The LifeDescribe a day in the life of a project that you have made, or are in the process of making.
I am Sarah's current WIP (work in progress), the Big Shrug by Debbie Bliss (isn't she just the most awesome designer?). I'm being knitted, yes you heard me correctly, in yarn the colour of boiled sweets; there's pink, blue, green, yellow, orange and purple in me and I am just the prettiest and funkiest shrug you have ever seen. The fabulous guys at Sirdar made me - thanks boys ;-)
|Here I am when I was just a tiny knitling. You can see what I'm going to be when I grow up!|
My knitting needles where a bit shocked when Sarah picked them up to cast me on. They'd been sitting on top of the shelf for so long that they had nearly forgotten how to knit but luckily, there was just enough memory left in them to get started and now they know just what they're doing.
|Aren't I pretty? I'm just the most delicious colours.|
Hopefully, she will keep up the regular knitting with me and I won't just get cast to one side like some of her other projects (I've heard the PHD pile whispering - there's a very unhappy Lego blanket plotting terrible things in there).
|Haven't I grown so much since I was cast on?|
|Look at how she keeps me? I deserve a project bag - maybe I'll start a petition?|
I've loved talking to you all and, once I'm finished and off the needles, I'll pop back on to chat to you all again - I might even give you a twirl so you can admire my pretty colours and stitches!
Lots of love
The Boiled Sweet Shrug xxx
