Finally! Back with a new finished project!

Finally! Back with a new finished project!

Hey everyone,

So sorry for the long wait but you cannot rush these things and sometimes you just cannot get the inspiration or the will to knit, especially with other things going on in your life.

Anyway, I’m back with tons of finished items, but let’s just start with one for now 🙂 A baby set.

Hello everybody,

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you started it safely and happily. If not, I wish you a happy, healthy and wonderful new year.

Cabled Sweater

Cabled Sweater

Hello everyone,

So sorry for the lengthy delay but life got in the way a bit and I’ve only just finished this sweater a couple of weeks ago and then life happened again – not something you can stop, can you?

Anyway, things seem to be getting back on track for now and I found some time to sit down and write a blog post.

Questions for me :)

Questions for me :)

I have been tagged in a Facebook post (in a FB page for Maltese bloggers) in order for others to get to know me better and I thought I’d do a blog post here instead of my other new blog RUMPs in Malta since it’s been a while 🙂

These are the questions that have been asked and if there are any regarding my blogs I will answer for both.

A new coat for my dog

A new coat for my dog

I have been buying coats for my dog for a few years now because he’s the type who feels the cold a lot, but now it’s a matter of severe arthritis and we really need to keep him warm. One of the problems of the coats you find for sale is that the velcro doesn’t hold after a while. Another problem, this time concerning our dog, is that he is on steroids for a brain inflammation and he has inevitably put on a lot of weight so the usual coat sizes on sale won’t fit around his stomach. So I decided I would make one for him. I had some grey Aran left over from the dress and a new ball of beige (both from the Kirkton House Rustic line) and started measuring my dog, Nemo.

My new dress – from a pattern made from scratch

My new dress – from a pattern made from scratch

In my last post I mentioned I was knitting a dress and that I’d finished the wool…I had to wait for about a month or so before the shopkeeper I was waiting on told me there was no way she could get me the wool, so I just up and went to the main wool shop here in Malta (John Gregory Ltd, Msida) and immediately found what I needed. I set to work almost instantly afterwards and finished the dress.

The story of this dress starts around November/December 2014 when my parents and I were visiting some shops. I saw these knitted dresses and I thought: “Hey, I could make one of these…a better one which will fit me perfectly!” So as soon as I was home, I set to work, with mum’s help, to create a pattern.

When you’re working on something and you finish your yarn! -.-

Hello everybody,

Hope you are all well and that you had a great holiday period and that you started the new year with positive things! I’m not happy to say that I started my year stranded at the party place by the taxi we’d booked, but that’s another story!

Back to this post though 🙂 I had gone to a clothes shop last year and saw a particular dress which immediately flipped a switch inside my brain saying: “I could make that! And a better one at that!” So, I took a couple of sneaky photos of this dress to keep the image fresh in my mind and set off on the adventure of creating my first ever pattern – this was both easy and difficult (I will tell you why in a different blog post).
