oh comely magazine - keep your curiosity sacred

Very chuffed to be featured in a new London-based magazine 'oh comely'. It's just my kind of magazine! Even though it's only sold in UK shops, you can subscribe and they will ship to anywhere in the world. 

"oh comely is a magazine about people and their quirks and their creativity, rather than money and what it can buy."

Yarn Bombing (with a PomPom)

I've been interested in yarn bombing for a while, if you've never heard of it before, here's a link. I've jsut made my first attempt at it today. I've joined a flickr group where I will post photos for a month to see what happens to a pompom I've placed in a tree near my house. It's a part of Natalies university project, she is in her final year at Edinburgh Napier University, and she is looking into what happens to artwork after the artist leaves. If you want to get involved and like making pompoms, here is more info.

Day One: 5th November 2010.

The William Bowler Hat

Lots of people have loved this image my friend Kristinn took of his cat William modeling the crocheted pet hat I now stock in my etsy store. I was lucky enough to have it featured in the etsy Halloween blog article. Doesn't William look just dapper in his bowler hat?

Here are some photos are some of the crochet jewellery I've recently made. I'm getting better at using the tiny hooks (less than 2mm)!
