Stitch & Bitch

So I'm still knitting. I really am enjoying it as well, it's so easy to just pick up and do a bit whenever you've got chance. And I'm loving making things I can wear. So much fun!

I also went to my local Stitch & Bitch group with Jenny which was good fun, like a crop but instead it's in a Starbucks and you sit and knit and drink coffee! Can't wait to go back this week. So what have I been knitting?

Well a Pirate Headband for one thing. It wasn't supposed to be a Pirate Headband. It was meant to be a normal headband, but it wasn't until I'd finished it and put it on did I realise that it actually made me look like a pirate. {Sigh}

But never mind! It'll still keep my ears warm in France next month!

Oh and George decided to get in on the action whilst taking photos of it, silly cat!

I am also finished a neck warmer that was my first attempt at cabling, which is nowhere near as hard as I though it would be! I'm realy chuffed with this actually.
I found that pattern for the neckwarmer from Rachel's projects on Ravelry, which is a great website with thousands of free patterns (all of my patterns so far have come from there!) and you can check out what your friends are up to and see what lovely things they are knitting too. My username on there is EmmaWoo, if you're on Ravelry too let me know!
