January Bits and Bobs !!

January is a dull and cold month for me, I never seem to have any energy, but as soon as I see daffodils in the shops I have to buy them. They were my mums favourite flowers so they always make me feel better. I have been knitting for a few magazines this month and this one is coming soon. I love knitting cables and texture, I never get bored with it.

If you don't already know I run the kids arts and crafts in our local community building in Victoria park. Last year I painted a tree for all the kids to make leaves and flowers on throughout the seasons. This year Lucy at Attic 24 with her patchwork heart flowers have inspired me to create a wall at the community building, using knitted, crocheted and even paper flowers. It will be Victoria Parks community wall of flowers and hopefully have it looking something like this.

I have painted the wall in preparation for the flowers
I was sad to paint over the tree from last year
This week I have also been busy knitting with King Cole Raffia. At first it was strange to knit with but the results were beautiful. I can see myself knitting a bag for summer in this.

And lastly, myself and Sarah's crochet scarves went all the way to Scotland. A friend bought one for his wife for Xmas to keep her warm up north, so here is Liz modelling our beautiful scarf.

Until next time Ta ta !! Helen & Sarah xx
