Flower Corsage

In the last few weeks I have been knitting small.  Im not taking on or considering any big projects just now and instead have been making some flower corsages.  In the picture below I am using Sirdar Crofter yarn.  Its supposed to knit up in a fair isle pattern.  My other half's gran knitted up a cardigan for wee guy and you can see the fair isle pattern come out beautifully.

As I am off work this week I am hoping to be able to fit in some more knitting and if the sun would dare to show itself I might even be able to take some pictures.

I try to fit these wee projects in while my youngest is at nursery.  The flower corsage is from one of my latest purchases Rachel Henderson - I love knitting

Running slow girl run

Hi, just a wee entry from me. I made the decision to set myself a target and have thus entered a 10k. It's going to be in Glasgow in May so I don't have that long to prepare.

Last week I went back to running for the first time in a while. Three times I have been out now in a week and already I can feel my pins getting stronger.

Today I bought a Davina McCall hula hoop. My efforts were tragic to say the least. Will need to find out if there is a knack. I have to crack this.

No crafty news today, I will save this for another day when I can upload some photos.
