Chillin' with the Knittin'

Good afternoon to all!!
I'm chilling with my knitting on a well-deserved day off. The image above? Of that said knitting, which is based on the pattern 'Brownie' from Rowan's Kidsilk Dream pattern book. The book consists of a variety of woodland-like knitting and crochet patterns using Rowan's awesomely beautiful fine yarn. Sadly it is expensive at £8.99 per 50g ball, but I'm thinking of making this a last sort of knitting project for the year (academically speaking).
However, with the recent release of her amazing book Woodland Knits, Stephanie has given me reason (and other knitters alike) to keep giving different projects a go. I don't own the book yet, but I think I will be in due course, purely because she's managed to turn gorgeous faery-things into a reality through an interesting craft. I think I've been overlooking the fact that she truly is my inspiration in creative things and wondrous dwellings (of course alongside the likes of Brian and Wendy Froud, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Karen Kay (Editor of FAE Magazine and Faery Events Coordinator) ).

Currently, I would love to get my hands on the pattern 'Seedpod Purse' as I just think it's so adorable and would fit with my eccentric ways.

Until the next time,
