I have loads and loads of 'scrappy' wool so I am making lots of smaller items to use some, I am enjoying them too as they can usually be completed in about 2 evenings :-)

My latest project was a headband using black, blue, pirple and cream wool. The colours are so vibrant and gorgeous. The headband is designed to keep head and ears warm in the colder months.

The next photo is my most recent yarn purchases. I want so much yarn at the moment but I think my husband will divorce me if I buy any more without knitting some up.

The left skeins are rainbow which I bought from knitterarty, the middle one is apples and pears sock yarn from babylonglegs and the right hand one is a custom skein that Carley at Bibs and Bots dyed for me. This evening I will be browsing ravelry deciding what to knit.

A little project of my own

This is a little something I have made for myself. Its a Darkside Cowl (pattern on Ravelry) made from Natural Dye Studio aran wool (I have had it in my stash for ages and cant remembr exactly what it is).

I love the way the colours have striped and am very pleased with this little project

Just an update from me

Hi everyone
I have been AWOL for a while now so I feel like I should post an update.
In truth I dont know if and when I will re-open LanaVida. I am now working part time which I am really enjoying but its leaving me with precious little time left for knitting.
I am knitting for pleasure at the moment and I am also trying to broaden my skills into crochet which I am really enjoying. I will continue to post on this blog with my projects and general yarn and knitting addiction so please keep looking.
A little update on us
My boys are fantastic and I love them so much, my youngest son turned 2yrs old last week and is getting cheekier by the moment. My eldest son is very quiet in comparison but so loving and I am immensely proud of both of them.

Farmyard set - finished

This set was offered during WAHM collaboration month. The gorgeous hoodie jumper is handmade by Nicola at Nitnac and the wool was dyed to match by Emma at Bobby Dazzlers.

I offered to knit the longies to custom measurements which have just been completed.

I love this set!
