My Creative Space

Due to the recent MUTILATION of my FAVORITE scarf (I'm calm now....I promise) I was feeling the urgent need to replace my beloved.

This week at the guldie house you'll find me franticly "clicking the sticks" to create a new essential woolly masterpiece. All my dreams of knitting myself a cardie this year have been put on hold and my grand statement of "No more scarfs for me" has been formally retracted...........Pesky Kids!!!!!!

Click, click, it's all therapy!

I'm off to catch up on all the Leonie goodness I've missed out on.

Looks great so far. Hope it is quick to knit for you - getting colder here.

Love the new scarf! Just popped back to see what happened with your other one! Oh dear!! Today I'm mending a bookcase that got broken yesterday when my 5 year old decided to swing on it.......
They don't mean to....

The scarf is looking gorgeous. Aren't kids a pain sometimes?! How do their little minds work? Infuriating. At least you should be given lots of Mummy time for knitting now. If not, just retrieve the old scarf and wave it around until you get it.(ps I felt the same way when my then 4 year old ripped my much loved childhood copy of "Now we are Six" into smithereens.)

You make me wish I could knit.
Yours scarf will be lovely dovely... it already is!

Tracey said...

wish I could knit, I really do, your cables are fab. Having a go today at Michelle's crochet version of your wrap

Kirsten said...

It will be beautiful - but what a sad end to the other gorgeous one :( . May the sticks be with you!

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

I reckon this scarf is going to be even better than the mutilated one!

Sandrine said...

Love the blankets colours too :) happy click click!x

Beautiful greeny sagey coloured wool!
When I saw the mutilation I kind of had a cunning plan for it. Might email you with an idea...x

Gorgeous cables x

The new one will be gorgeous, especially if that yarn's anything to go by. Yum!

BTW, the injured scarf: is it crocheted? If so, it looks like it's done in long rows, so it might be possible to undo the injured bits and add some extras. I'm sure you've already thought of that, but just in case you hadn't I thought I'd mention it!! Even if you can't do it yourself, I'm sure there's lots of crochet types who'd be happy to do it for you!

His great grandmothers pudding bowl, his grandmothers mixing bowl, my coffee cup, hubby's glass, books, cd cases, the laptop.

I am constantly reminding my mother that she did not warn me just how many things a one year old would break.

I don't suppose I would have listened until it happened though. :)

Is it too terrible to admit that I love your new scarf even more than the old one??

Gorgeous... I wish I could knit!

Tammy James said...

Oh Leonie that looks lovely and perhaps a tad more practical than the one I'm working on ..hmmm

Kate said...

Gorgeous! Love the colour and the pattern. I so need to learn to knit. How long did that bit take you? I can't work out if knitting is slower or faster than crochet.

Caroline said...

Your photos always look so warm and cozy, and especially this one with all the blankets and cable knitting in the soft light. Mmmm, cozy.

I'm loving both the colour and pattern. Just beautiful xo

Cindy said...

I guess if you have to make a replacement then one so gorgeous sounds best

Tash said...

Mmmm warm scarves! Like how you've put it on the blankies - wool with wool! xx
