WOYWW New Storage!

I know its not exactly a desk, but I had to show off my new storage! I just need some more boxes, baskets and tubs to make it all look tickety-boo ...!

And this is what I'm currently working on:

 I'm knitting a scarf on my little Knifty Knitter. I really like the way using a figure-of-eight stitch on the loom gives a nice open finish and shows of the yarn texture at its best.

And whats WOYWW? Well its What On Your Workdesk Wednesday, and to join in the fun (and have a nosey at desks around the blogosphere) please visit the wonderful Julia Dunnit's blog here !

Clickety Click

I got bored of watching tripe on the tellybox, so I knitted a hat for my lovely Takara Blythe (French Trench) instead ...

Isn't she gorgeous? The hat's not bad either ...!

Looming Heck!!

Papercrafting and rubber stamping have taken a bit of a back seat lately as I've found a new 'thing' to play with ...! In my house we've been dabbling with that good old favourite timeless pastime French Knitting, on Knitting Nancys ... you know, those knitting bobbins that you use to make yards and yards or knitted cord then wonder what on earth to make with all the cord ...! Well ... we might be a bit behind the time here as we (me and the kids) have just discovered some wonderful knitting gadgets called knitting looms ... in this case Knifty Knitters!! I can knit with needles but veeery slooooooooooowly ... and this is so much more fun!

As you can see, me and the kids have been busy making hats and scarves! And my goodness its soooo easy! There is a hat in progress on the red loom, being made by one of the children.  I finished the speckled hat yesterday ... So far I have the round loom set and the flower loom, but have also ordered a long loom, the spool loom and the adult hat loom. I think what pleases me most though is the kids enjoy this activity as much as I do!
