About Me

My photo
My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

How to keep your ears warm...

Good Evening. Hope you're all well.

Just a quick posting this evening to show you some of the ear warmers I knitted for the Christmas Fair last weekend. Unfortunately the piccies aren't brill and these were the best of the shots I took but I was doing the finishing touches the night before the Fair.

I also made some in a deep red colour and some were decorated with beads rather than buttons, but you get the gist. I sold 7 out of the 8 I made so I was well chuffed. I'm now busy knitting the next batch as I've received some orders.
Just to make it clear. You wear these like a headband but pulled over your ears to keep them warm. Great when you don't want to wear a hat.

Hope you like them, x

  2. Now I know what you mean. Brilliant idea and lovely colours yu have made them in. Is there no end to what you can do?
    Hugs, Neet xx
