This morning I woke up at 3.30am. I don't really sleep much more than 5 hrs, and since I went to bed early last night, i was bound to wake up early. Anyway, not long after making myself a coffee, I noticed my green hat was one the Etsy FP at 4am, the treasury was curated by one of my FTEC team mates, check out her shop.http://www.etsy.com/shop/CricketsCreations

Later today and this evening, I intend to treat myself to a session of knitting, that doesn't involve custom orders. I've had a simple summer top in my head for some time, and this week I ordered the yarn. This lovely coral red cotton acrylic yarn is hopefullygoing to work its wonders on my needles, to create my vision. If all goes well, I'll have some pictures tomorrow of the finished garment. If it goes a bit 'Ooops a daisy'. Then I'll probably have to unravel it.

the 1st March is St Davids day the patent saint of Wales
I being born and raised in Wales, am happy to celebrate the day by sharing a few artists who have used the Welsh national flower 'the Daffodil' within their work.
YEs well black might not exactly be the most spring like colour, but for now, I've only had time - due to a custom order- to knit this lighter weight version in a black. It's a very slim fitting style in comparison to the my chunky version. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39688805 which will be perfect for the hot summer evenings. The yarn is a mix of cotton and acrylic, and comes in loads of spring like colours, I might give it a go in a cream, and and a vibrant red, cause I love red in the summer.
