I was unsure about doing the blog to start off with as I thought it was 'showing off' a bit, but I've had so much fun doing the challenges and sketches from various sites that I no longer think of it as that. I've also got so much inspiration from others with blogs, so thanks for that also. Not to mention of course the blog buddies I've made.
Up for grabs is an altered notebook, which I have started decorating:
and will personalise with the winners choice of name, notes or recipes etc. Once I know what is wanted for the front, I'll decorate using a selection of embellishments from the picture and probably a few more I've not picked out yet!
There will be other goodies in the parcel with the notebook, depending on if the winner is a papercrafter or not (although it would be fun seeing someone trying to knit with patterned paper!).
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll use one of those random generator thingies to pick a winner on Thursday 17th Jan around 11am GMT (or around then depending on when I get my arse out of bed)!
In knitting news, I have started knitting a hairy monkey. I wanted to make a smaller version like Monkeemaker's HP's so I searched through her blog to find the calculations - divide by 3 then times by 2 - and sat down to figure it out. I'd done the body front and was feeling a bit smug that I'd done it until I realised that I also ought to be reducing the number of rows too!! Gggrr!! Somehow I don't think a tall skinny monkey would look the same! Me being me, I couldn't be arsed to start again especially as my brain was fried by now.
So, it's a full size hairy one for me! This is how far I've got.
