Little Bits and Pieces

So, the World Cup is over - does this mean we can get back to some sort of normality?  The World Cup rabbits are now back on the shelf, waiting for their moment in the spotlight again in four years time.  I'm sure it will fly by.

I think I've had about a week off from knitting cardigans - but I'm addicted so I ordered more Jamieson & Smith 2 ply and I'm off knitting another one.

The colour is pinker than I thought it was going to be - it's hard to judge when you're buying on the internet - but it is a perfect match for some fabric I've just bought and intend to make into a dress.

The cardigan will be just one colour this time but will have lacy panels up the fronts.  It's always exciting starting something new.

Although, that didn't stop me getting distracted this morning.  I was reading my blog list and saw that Julie over at Little Woollie had created some crochet postage stamps - utterly pointless but very cute.

I still collect stamps - although they are not organised in any way.

Many years ago, I used some of them to decorate this box.

So, using my collection as inspiration, I made myself a little stamp.

A lovely little project, perfect for keeping my mind off the housework!  You can see details of how to make the stamp over at Julie's blog, here.
