Knitting Accessories

I don't have anything finished to show you this week (fingers crossed for next week) but I don't like to be left out of FO Friday so I thought I would do a list of my top 5 knitting accessories! I don't know about you but when I start a new hobby like knitting I get completely obsessed with doing it and everything related to it. So this list may look more like my 5 favourite (but rather tenuous) things to do with knitting, we'll see how it goes!

So here's my first one:

A good knitting bag!

I love this one by Cath Kidston


But really there are so many designs and shapes the possibilities are endless! And hey you need more than one anyway!

Next up on my list is:

Point protectors!

How cool are these?!


I really like these ones, I have pink sheep that I use which are pretty cool too!

Next up is of course:


Not exactly an accessory but we wouldn't get too far without them (aside from acrylic yarn and cotton, linen etc, you get the idea though!)


I love this time of year when you see all the little lambs leaping around, makes me so happy!

Next is:

A cute measuring tape!

This is so cute


I have a little collection of measuring tapes now, I have a bird, a panda and an apple, I love them all! Who can resist when they are this cute?!

Last but not least is:

A lovely Notebook!

Everyone needs one of these


Notebooks always come in handy, I always write down notes for patterns, I'd be lost without mine!

So that's my list, I'm sure yours is different, I'd love to know what your favourite knitting things are!

Well I'm off to check out Tami's blog and see other Fo's!

Much Love Monday - My Daft Cat

Happy Monday everyone! I am quite happy this Monday, the sun is shinning and everything looks nice and cheerful! I'm also really please to be taking part in Much love Monday again, I have missed this little bit of happiness every week! So what do I love this Monday, this Monday I love my daft cat Phoebe. Here is a picture of here from yesterday

Now this pretty much sums up Phoebe perfectly! If there is anything, anything at all she thinks she can be a part of she will. She had been eyeing up our new herb planter since Saturday when we bought it and while husband and I were in the garden yesterday she finally climbed in. She just loves to think she is there with us, helping and part of the action. She is so funny, just her little face and the way she follows me about, I just love her.

So there you go that my Monday love, what are you loving today?

Don't forget to visit Anna for more Much love Monday

Happy Weekend!


This totally sums up how I feel! It seems like such a long time since I've had a weekend, life seems to have been so busy lately, there has been no time for anything. This weekend its going to be different though: 
- I am going to have a couple of long lies
- read 
- do some gardening
- have a long soak in the bath
- watch a movie
- do some knitting
- cook some proper food
- go for a walk

Happy weekend everyone! 
 (hopefully see you through the week this week!)
