And finally Dot Stitch and Stocking Stitch Triangles!
Some are more obvious than others, but I'm pleased to be having a go at them! I have started the next swatch in green, I'm planning to stitch them all together at the end to make a big blanket!
It's a little bit messy, and everything is a little bit worn around the edges, but I will always have fond memories, and some fairly crazy fun mishaps, to look back on...
So this is my bit of space today, all filled with busy makings for my degree show which is a week tomorrow...and just as a little sneak preview, here are the pieces that I'm working on...
They're not quite done yet, but I'm pretty pleased with how they're coming along. I'm hoping my degree show will be a huge success!

This is Sam's bangle,
and this is Rachael's bangle!
I've been doing some uni work too, but this was the most fun! We also had Cake and Make, I've been working on some knitting swatches which are going well!

I'm off to make more scarves now, I do so love finger-knitting! I'm watching "You've Got Mail" at the moment, and I always smile at the part where she writes about a butterfly in the Subway, because there was a wasp in the underground in Liverpool when Amy and I went last month... not quite as pretty as a butterfly but equally unusual. I wonder if he was going to the theatre, or maybe to Tate Liverpool to take in some art?
I found the "Dressmaking with Liberty" book in the jumble sale, it has all sorts of pretty (uncut) patterns all tucked neatly in the back, as well as a whole floral teaset for a very modest £1.50! There are six cups and saucers and six side plates. I have plans for them, which hopefully I will be sharing in the near future! I also picked up three bundles of lace and the small reels of crochet cotton for 60p, and the latest addition to my shell animal collection!
As well as my flea market finds, I had a super find in my friend's fantastic vintage stall whilst on my travels! Linda La-La-Land is the most fabulous little treasure trove, and I could regularly come home with a whole bag-full of lovely things! This little bag caught my eye, the perfect mix of polka dots and floral print, and in the perfect summery orange. I also love that when I opened it I caught the scent of face powder! I may well have to build my degree show preview night outfit around this little bag...

there's a bit of a theme emerging here!
It's been a funny day, I've had a few problems with my jewellery making, things aren't going to plan just yet, but I've also spent some time with some of my most favourite people, with lots of tea drinking involved! Tomorrow I'm sure will bring new ideas and solutions, and I am really looking forward to hanging out with my lovely friends at "Cake and Make".
A good joint effort I think! I did the shaping (in very gorgeous heat proof gloves) and Amy did the heating (very well too, I came away completely unscathed!). So I got yellow and turquoise, and Amy got red and green, and we were both very happy! A jolly good day it has to be said!
and "I love Crochet" - I've been doing well lately for craft books! I started making my first swatch from my super knitting book that I picked up last week, I've barely had time to think lately but I want to try and keep doing some of the things I love in my spare time!
