A Sweet Knit.

I hate paying for knitting patterns (or any other kind of pattern really). There are so many great ones on the internet, that if you trawl for long enough, you'll eventually find exactly what you're looking for. This one took me ages to find, but when I did, boy was I excited. It's the perfect combo of manly Scottish sailor and feminine first date. Plus, the boat-neck finish with accentuate your long and thin neck. I just had to share it!

I'm not going to sugar coat it, it's a pretty difficult pattern. It took me a few times to interpret and correctly knit it the first few times. But your struggles will definitely pay off with a cozy autumn

Embroidered diaries.

It's been a while since I last posted! I've been getting re-aquainted with the Australian lifestyle and have neglected every important task but relaxing!
To help me relax, I've been working on some small creative buzzes to keep my mind at design central.
This diary I embroidered using old plaid and tartan patterns I found lying around home. I loved taking inspiration from them and re-working them to create something I can carry around with me all the time.
I made the mistake of not measuring the front properly while I was gluing and accidentally placed it too low. But the entire pattern is still there, so I'm not complaining!
