Gingerbread men in the post...

I was woken up this morning by the sound of a package falling onto the doormat. That noise is enough for me to scurry quickly out of bed, far quicker than I ever would if it was a workday! Delivered this morning was my prize from the asking for trouble blog giveaway. Kawaii notebooks, badges, gingerbread men & an uber cute bread slice charm. Thank you!
Back to my crafting, my opt art blanket is finished and in the post, will share photos soon. In the meantime I have cast on some Wise Hilda socks for me, using some beautiful variegated drops yarn that I won from a playful day podcast giveaway.
The pattern is suitably simple, so that I can knit away whilst daydreaming or watching tv. And, I'd forgotten just how much I like using a variegated yarn, I find myself calling out the colours as I knit along "oooh, purple", "oooh, green!" :)


  1. What a nice package to get on a monday morning! I find variegated yarn amazing and yet addictive, I will try and finish one colour and then another will come along that I just HAVE to see knitted up the next thing I know its 2am! ;D

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a thing for variegated yarn!

  3. The more it looks like fair isle the better I find that it knits up quickly because I get so excited about the pretty shapes and colours, but there are also some sock yarns out there that work on colourways of famous paintings so I can be rocking some Van Goughs on my tootsies :D
