I've FINALLY taken the plunge and have committed to reducing my yarn stash. I will take each ball of yarn from my every growing stash and I'll knit or crochet with it, until it's all used up. I will be charity knitting and I may even knit something for myself - something I rarely do. I will be documenting my progress, reviewing yarns and sharing patterns along the way. To see all the posts from this project, click the link above called Project Destash.If anyone wants to join in and start their own Project Destash, just let me know and I will post links to your blogs.
I've just finished crocheting this lovely cheesecake. I love creating these - each one ends up different. This would make a great pin cushion or a fab fun gift. It's for sale in my etsy shop and in my folksy shop too. I've recently joined folksy. I think it's a great site. I'm not sure how widely known it is, but there's definitely some gorgeous handiwork on there. Great for UK crafters.
I crocheted the cheesecake as I needed a break from writing up a crochet pattern - I've been working on it for ages - writing it, checking it, changing it, testing it, changing it......... I've been going round in circles with it (pardon the pun!!). BUT, I'm almost there with the pattern, I just need to check it one more time then transpose the English terminology to US, so that the pattern is available in both. I'll be posting a sneak preview soon, so keep looking.....
I love all things crafty, especially knitting, crochet and sewing. Each week I'll be posting a blog on the trials and excitement of knitting, sewing and designing, with sneaky peaks at my new designs, finished pieces and top tips that I've found along the way. I'll also be adding some wheat and gluten free recipes from time to time for you to try.
I hope that my designs inspire you and I would love to hear your comments and feedback. Please remember to respect copyright laws - all my images and designs are copyrighted to CakesKnitsandCosies.
