Lately I've been lusting over sooo many amazing knitting and crochet patterns that I can't wait to get my hands on and sink my teeth into!

If only I had more time to sit and relax and knit and crochet and create!! Currently I'm lusting over this gorgeous Ysolda Teague creation called "Belle"! This pretty beanie makes me dream of the winter time!

I think I'm in love with pretty much EVERYTHING by Ysolda! All of her patterns are adorable knits! I only wish I was a more experienced knitter to take on some of her more "advanced" patterns, like this one...

And this one!!

Maybe these three patterns can go onto my 2011 to do list! I have sooo many knitting/crochet projects on the go at the moment I think I need to finish those before starting one of these gorgeous patterns. I just can't help but get so excited and enthusiastic when I see such beautiful projects!!

Firstly, I need to finish off Roger's headband and then my sister's slippers! (I've made one and a half I just need to finish them off!! lol)

What crafty goodies are you lusting over at the moment? Have you got any good knitting pattern suggestions for a new-ish to knitting beginner (ME!!) ??


  1. Lovely patterns! I like the first beanie the most. romantic!

  2. Those are fantastic patterns to put on the list! I have so many patterns on my list for 2011 already, I can't even think about one more.

  3. I love Ysolda too Ellie!!!

    Her patterns are amazing and you'd be surprised, some of them are really easy...

    I'm currently working on a scarf/wrap out of her second book in some gorgeous Heirloom Alpaca...

    Hugs - Jodie :)

  4. Ellie its all just a knit and a purl!!

    And maybe a bit of concentration! he he he!!

    Try Ysolda's Veyla mitts, maybe something of a challenge, but small enough to do quickly and they are just lovely.
