my creative space - swapping!

half way

Apologies, more knitting. Its that weather here! And with the excitement of the Brooch Swap and some other busy bits its the only creative action happening around here. This is my tea leaves cardigan again.

There is something so satisfying about having a project on the needles, watching it slowly grow. I love how you don't have to think about it, there are no decisions left to make, I can pick it up and put it down whenever I have a moment. I'm already thinking that I need to make sure my next project is ready to go when I finish this.

Thank you so much to all the lovely people who have joined up for the Brooch Swap. Its very exciting, the list includes some of my very favourite crafty types (thanks guys!), and lots of lovely new faces. And if you are interested in joining the swap, there is still time, sign ups stay open till next Tuesday. And if you haven't emailled me your name and address yet please do that.

Make sure you come back tomorrow because I have a special treat for you!! Lovely Kylie Hunt has written and photographed a guest post with a tutorial for her amazing embroidered brooch, which some incredibly lucky swapper is going to receive in the swap! I love Kylie's brooches and I'll share some of her others with you tomorrow. I'm sure they'll help inspire your making if you are joining us for the swap.

  1. Were you able to link up on Kootoyoo's blog for My Creative Space? I can't get onto the site...

  2. I have cardi envy - I am still plugging away at mine waiting to get up to separating the sleeves. Only another two inches to go.

    Yours looks lovely, and the colour is gorgeous.

  3. I want that cardigan... LOVE the wool, it's gorgeous!! I love watching knitting grow too :)

  4. I love this cardigan so much! It's just beautiful Susie :)
    Now, you know I'm blushing here too... see you tomorrow! Kx

  5. One of your photos in your post has gone AWOL? Flickr is hiding it somewhere I think.

    Your cardi is divine! Gosh, that wool makes me want to run my hands all over it. This could be a problem when you are wearing the cardigan, should other people feel the same urge... ha ha

    I've already made a start on my brooch. So excited and inspired!


  6. I really like that yarn too!

  7. Your cardi looks gorgeous! Love that wool, so pretty. Must be so satisfying.
    I'd love to join the brooch swap, just have to think of something I could manage…
    lucky I've got till Tuesday. : )

    Have a fab weekend Susie. x
