Bit of a gap between my posts sorry about that, the littlest dude is having a growth spurt and making sure we all know about it! ;) plus my carpal tunnel is seriously playing up making even typing hard so i’ve been resting up a bit :)
So whats new in My Wide Eyed World? Well i have been forward planning a couple of new projects including this, isn’t it stunning? Unfortunately i can’t get the yarn requested in the pattern but after having a chat with the lovely Truly Hooked i have ordered some lovely custom died yarn to make it with! And rather than go with the crowd i have decided to go for some sea colour tones <3 so watch this space for updates!
I have also been beavering away at the Mad Mad Me inspired Bavarian Rainbow blanket. Here is a little progress piccy for you-
It’s getting quite enormous now and lovely and snuggly, can really picture snuggling up under it in the winter when its done!
Another reason i have been pushing to get this finished (apart from the fact that my WIP pile seems to be ever increasing!) is that i won some gorgeous Rainbow yarn from the lovely Cuddlebums! She makes some stunning yarns and i am thrilled to have one winging its way to me!
Here is the beautiful skein i won! Can’t believe this beauty is mine :)
I have decided i am going to use it to edge the Bavarian blanket, i had been thinking of edging it in white but this will look much better :) a proper rainbowy way to end such a huge rainbowy project lol.
I have also been working on my own patterns i actually have one written here (its also available on Ravelry for those who aren’t fans of Etsy) which i made last year :)
i have been working on a sister for my elf, a little ballerina or fairy (i can’t decide yet) and also some topsy turvy dolls. A recent post on facebook made me feel so nostalgic i couldn’t resist having a go making up a pattern! so again please watch this space for updates :)
So i promised an Edgit review… i have to say so far its not going well :( i am massively disappointed with it, it didnt work at all for the project i had in mind when i brought it so at the moment it is sitting on my desk gathering dust. I am going to give it a second try and see what happens but i am really not feeling the love with it right now :(
My big dude has started showing an interest in crochet and after turning my back on him for a few minutes i came back to find him doing this-
He had pulled out a ball of yarn, popped it in the yarn bowl, grabbed a hook and started crocheting! “It’s a teddy for me” I was told when i asked what he was doing bless him! <3
This week i thought i should share a picture of me… here you go-
Hahaha i said a piccy not a photo :p this awesome drawing was done by the amazingly talented Eric from Red Ink Saga who is the brother of a lovely friend who runs Sugar-Coated Chaos. i seriously recommend you check these guys out :) they are both lovely, mega talented people!

Eric also drew this picture of my crocheting ninja alter ego-

And on that note i will leave you for today!
