Brrr Winter is really starting to set in down here in the South of NSW. I've dragged out my winter woollies and my hot water bottle has made many a nights appearance! The chilly months always motivate me to get back into the crafts that I love and are still learning about; crochet and knitting.

I have been crocheting for a few years now and knitting for a little less time but haven't really found my full stride with knitting just yet but I am determined to get into it again and at least see some improvement by summer time!

I have been working on some simple patterns lately to ease myself back into it all. At the moment on the crochet front I am working on a hex-y blanket for my couch. I wanted to use some bright and happy colours so I am using 4 different colour-ways of the Cascades Heathers. They are lovely and soft and really easy to work with!

Its coming along nicely. In amongst my busy schedule I have been attempting to keep up with Kate over at Fox's Lane with her "motif-a-day-in-may" pursuits. She is attempting to crochet a small motif a day all throughout May which inspired me to get on board and attempt a hex-y a day. Of course I am slightly behind but determined to catch back up and have 31 nicely made hex-y's by the end of the month! Check out Kate's motifs on her blog, they are GORGEOUS!

On the knitting front I was very excited to hear the postie pull up at my house this morning with a special yarn delivery! I ordered some Spud and Chloe Outer yarn last week in the colour-way "Peat" and it showed up today and is divine! I'm in love! This is my first time using Spud and Chloe yarn so I am even more excited to get cracking!

This lovely yarn will be transformed into a chunky knit scarf (possibly cowl - still deciding) for a Graphic Design assignment I have at the moment. Its hard to explain but will work in fabulously with what I have planned! :)

More crafty news to come soon hopefully with progress piccies!
What are you hooking or knitting at the moment?
