Sneak peek!

As I'm not posting any pictures of the Christmas presents I'm making (and I haven't had time to make anything else) here's a sneak peek of some edging I've been doing this morning :)

Neon pink tips

After last weekend I realised that I haven't been using the nail art paints that Tom got me last Christmas as often as I should have been. So.. this week I picked on out of the big box he gave them to me in. I decided to use a nude base and paint my nail tips :)

I even used a topcoat!

Christmas presents

I feel like I'm getting somewhere with making Christmas presents. Some of the people I'm making for read this blog though, so I will blog about them all, with lots of pretty pictures, after Christmas.. so long to wait!

I stressed out a little bit yesterday in the middle of a project for a Christmas gift and realising I didn't have enough yarn. I then ordered more online before realising that I'd actually used too much already by mistake.
I'll start fixing it later but I also have a birthday present to make which is slightly more urgent as the birthday is Wednesday!

I bought my first set of DPN needles on ebay this week, and after some frustration and youtube videos, I finally worked out how to use them!
The top picture is how my knitting looked as I'd just got the hang of it, and then the bottom picture, is my first complete project using the needles!
Now I just have to start, design and complete the Christmas project that I wanted the DPNs for.
