Last weekend I went to the Unravel Festival at Farnham Maltings. I had an excellent time and bought a whole lot of yarn. Above is a rather cheesy recap video of my weekend. Filmed on my phone, but I think gives you a flavour. If you love yarn or fibre and are close by it would be well worth taking a look next year!
Here is a list of some of the vendors featured in the video;

This week and last I’ve been making lots of snowflakes ready for Christmas. I plan to use them for ornaments and Christmas cards. I’ve been using the wonderful Festive Snowflakes patterns by Valerie Bracegirdle which I think is great value, three great patterns for £2.oo. There has been a whole group discussion in her Ravelry group about things we are making for Christmas now that it is just around the corner. After a little chatting and some lightning fast pattern design by Valerie, she agreed to create a snowflake design for me to share with you for free!
I’ve recorded a how to video;
And as promised here is the chart;
Here is the link to the Ravelry design page.
I hope you all like it! It was a great pleasure to work with Valerie on this. I really hope I can do more tutorials like this in the future. Any questions just leave a comment here or on the YouTube video.
A tutorial demonstrated on the Anniversary Sharf project showing how to YO at the beginning of a row. Please excuse the colour changes in the video as I’m still in my learning curve. I will look to resolve the issue in future videos.

This time I’ve tried a video blog! Have a look and see what you think.
The snowflake pattern I talk about is actually called Festive Snowflakes by Agrarian Artisan.
The pattern for the Short and Sweet cardigan I’m working on is in the Stitch ‘n Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker book.
