Get crafty

I simply cannot resist japanese craft books or japanese fabrics. And yesterday was a good day fabric-wise, because the mailman brought my latest acquisition from nuno-plus. (This was the second time I ordered from them, and this time I had even faster delivery than the first - great place!). Sorry about the colours being a bit dull when compared to real life, but daylight saving time and the approach of winter makes for poor photography:



Are they not cute? I can see a lot of christmas presents made from these - hope to get seriously crafty in a month or so...

Inspired by all the images on Ravelry, I digged out my progressing Earth Stripe Wrap - design from Rowan Mag 42 - which I hope I will be able to get a bit further with really soon. The fabric and colours are great (again, apologize the dull photo),



but I must confess that I subbed some of the shades with what was handy in the Kid Silk Haze stash herearound. Love Kaffe Fassett's way with colours, though.

Kiddo has finally given in to the knitting bug. Yippie!!! Maybe mohair is not the best choise for a first-timer, but it had to be pink, and pink yarns in a light worsted weight are not really in abundance in this knitters stash.




At least it is a good quality mohair ;-) I can see some pink yarn shopping in the near future...

Look at the little one knit! Of course, given the mamma, it was inevitable that she'd take it up sooner or later. :-) You realize that this means she's going to want to rummage through your stash?

Is that KSH? Be careful what you start, you may lose your stash!

Love the green kid on the green couch.
