Time to move Nan down the page. It's been lovely having her smiling at me each time I logged into these pages. Only thing is I didn't want to move her by posting a new entry. But then it has to be done at some point so how better than sharing some bloggy love?
Inspired by my incredible good fortune at winning Lucy's recent lovely giveaway, I thought I would host a little giveaway of my own. So what could I come up with that you might want? Well it's turning cold here so just the time for something warm and cosy. The time for gifting is also just about here and so I thought something that would make a great stocking filler if you don't want to keep to yourself. And because I so enjoy all your lovely comments I wanted to share something special I have been holding onto for a while.
So here we are a little something crafted from a favourite part of the stash, a yarn that has waited so long for inspiration to hit:
|Araucania Limari super bulky 70% merino, 20% alpaca, 10% silk|
Only one 100g hank of this in the stash so very much enjoyed for it's softness, and colours, and for the ideas it brought forth.
And so today I grabbed the needles and settled to work.
Do you want to see what I came up with?
Of course you do....
What do you think?
Would you like to feel the softness and warmth of this beautiful yarn keeping your ears and head cosy and snug?
Would you like to own a very much in style but one off accessory?
Or do you know of a special person who might like to find this in her stocking on Christmas morning?
|And a big button to combat that annoying habit wool has of stretching over wear.....simply move the button further along! Clever huh?|

Hmmm, when to draw? How about one week from today - Sunday 27th November?
The pattern for the headband came straight from my imagination so this is truly a one off although I will be writing the pattern up shortly if there's any interest so if you aren't lucky enough to win you could still make your own in just an hour or two. Oooh the joys of super bulky yarns......
