My Creative Space....

Ok so maybe it's a bit of a Creative/Lazy space this week...I tend to avoid this chair because, well I get too comfy in it :P....But the Braxton Hicks Contractions have kicked in so it's much more relaxing to sit here and craft then anywhere else..



As you can see I have a few ongoing projects...One crochet One knitting...

The knitting is the Husband Scarf It is super simple (NOW) but for a newbie like me it took me several times of restarting to get it down..Mainly because I taught myself the longtail cast-on and then I had to learn what the stitches looked like to keep track because it's impossible to keep count with my little one constantly needing me to get up and down...So after a few hours this is how far I got...haha..



The other project....I AM LOVING....is baby girls first blanket, a beautiful ripple inspired by Lucy over at Attic24
I love her blog and I am obsessed with these colors...:)


That's all at the moment, but if you want more crafty goodness visit the amazing Miss Kirsty

Oh I remember those Braxtons, mine always started way before the babies were born. I like to think they are doing lots of the hard work so that the labour is quicker and less painful! Your blanket is lovely! xo

That's a most inviting space! I wish that's where I was sitting right this minute.

That ripple blanket is just lovely - the colours are fabulous. Hope that other on-going project (the one that is giving you Braxton Hicks contractions!) is going well :)
