Cool and Stylish? I Can Only Dream.

Firstly, I'd like to say a big hello all the new followers of this blog.  It's lovely to have you join me.  This blog is mostly about me being inspired to be creative and I hope that, in turn, I can inspire others.

I seem to have a lot of projects at the moment just waiting to be finished off, but not enough time to deal with them.  There's never enough time!

I've got a crochet pattern I've been working on that I thought I'd be able to share with you but, as is always the case, the writing up of the pattern, taking the photos and publishing the pattern, takes far longer than the actual making of the item.  Hopefully in the next few days I'll have something to show you.

In the meantime, I'm knitting up another cardigan (yes, yet another cardigan).  The pattern is called Funky Grandpa and it's by La Maison Rililie.  I bought this pattern March as a birthday treat, but have only now found the time to cast on.

It's growing really quickly, but then knitting stripes usually does.  I've finished the body and I've started the sleeves.

For the stripes I'm using a variegated sock yarn which creates a lovely colourful effect.

Here's the pattern picture.

I hope I look this cool and stylish when wearing the finished cardi, but I doubt it.  The designer is a young French woman and I'm a middle-aged scouser!  Anyway, I'd better get a move on and sort out that crochet pattern.  See you soon.


  1. I love the cardigan the stripes!! I have only written up a couple of very small crochet patterns of things I made, and yes, it is a lot of work, but well worth it, so I hope that you enjoy it! xx

  2. love this pattern. Girl , you have got fingers like bees wings! Can't believe how fast you knit. Funny how stripes knit up quick,isn't it? You'll look one funky scouser down the pub in this. Don't forget to throw a bit of bleach on yer jeans,ha ha.

  3. From experience middle aged scousers can look very elegant, I know a couple. Pattern looks good & I love the variegated stripes x

  4. I love the pattern, very stylish. The colours you have chosen are a real delight.
