3rd Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week

Are you up for something new this week? I am going to participate in a blog-a-long! I think that is a word I just made up. And even though the week is already started, I am going to try! Here is how it works. There are a list of subjects, one for each day of the week. A special tag is added to each post, so when googled you will be able to see all blogs participating. For more information click on the banner below.

So here goes!

Day 1: Colour Lovers
Colour is one of our greatest expressions of ourselves when we choose to knit or crochet, so how do you choose what colours you buy and crochet or knit with. Have a look through your stash and see if there is a predominance of one colour.
This one made me laugh. Everyone knows I love Pink! Light pink, dark pink, medium pink, bright pink, rose, even raspberry. My yarn stash is defiantly mono-color. I do try and mix it up a bit with brown, purple, blue and the occasionally black. I makes a great accent to pink. My wardrobe looks pretty much the same way. If you wanted to describe my color scheme with one word- Romantic.

Time is Wasting
Day 2: Photography Challenge Day!
Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative.
I had no clues about this one. I even thought of skipping it. But then inspiration hit! What knitter has not felt the crunch of time? That last minute project, Christmas knitting or a present gone wrong.


  1. Good idea for the photo! When that clock says that it's almost 5, it's time to start dinner! unless, of course, it's 5 AM, in which case you are a little OCD about knitting. ;-)

    1. Lol! Well I have been known to be up knitting in the wee hours. ;)

  2. Oh, how I wish I knew how to knit or crochet. I attempted to learn last year, but didn't advance much. Maybe, I need to take it up again. By the way, I love, love, love, that cardigan and your blouse. About two weeks ago, I went to Eddie Bauer outlet store, and tried on a blouse very similar to the one on your pics. I loved it!!! it just looks so romantic. I wanted to buy it, but the price was a little to high for me :(


    1. Jacqueline,
      Yes! You should try knitting again! It is a wonderful craft. Do you have a local knitting shop? It always helps to be able to take a class in person.
      You are right, the shirt is Eddie Bauer! I splurged! But if you keep your eye opened, Eddie Bauer does have some good sales. I love their cotton/cashmere cardigans too.

  3. No...sadly but true, their are no local knitting or crafting shops in my little town, but I will pick up my needles again.
