Flower cushion rough pattern

This cushion has been hanging out on my rocking chair for a while nor but I've finally sewed on the crochet flowers. It's a very simple knitted cushion with a couple of crochet touches...

Rough Pattern

Cast on to match width, cushion should be a multiple of 4 + 2
Start with 4 rows rib to fit cushion width
row one: k2 p2 (end on a k2)
row 2: p2 k2

main body in colour 1 until it covers just over the front and half the back of the cushion
knit row (cast off one stitch in first row)
purl row

main body join colour 2, continue until work covers the whole cushion plus rib
knit row
purl row

for button holes measure where you would like them, cast off two in that place
next row cast on two where they were
4 more rows as main body
cast off

Crochet border
*single crochet in first stitch, skip one, 5 double crochet in next, skip one* repeat single crochet in last stitch

Crochet flowers I used this pattern here which is my favourite.

Cross stitch necklace

Today was my first day back at work in 2014 (I took the rest off - it was lovely). I thought I'd make a bit of an effort and put on boots, tights and a skirt as well as the above.

The necklace was a christmas present from Ve, she made it! Isn't it amazing! You can get the necklace hoops online or from some craft shops she said.

Why a bike you ask? Well partly because of the time I fell into a parked car attempting to cycle and also because she maintains all I need to be 100% hipster is a fixed wheel bike! The cheek of it...

The first Monday of the year is apparently the most depressing of the year which is a sad way to start isn't it! My day was pretty good although I managed to rip my skirt (nooooo!).

P.S. I died my hair last week, it's a bit darker than usual - thoughts?

Moving playlist

Moving is all done!

The whole process was a pain, the person who was going to take my room pulled out so I ended up re-advertising which took a while ...  It was nice to have more time with the short commute but for a few weeks there I felt like I was stuck waiting for things to happen, then luckily we found someone nice and then there was the whole moving whirlwind.

I've still got some unpacking to do but I'm pretty much done and all my stuff is here now. It's weird living beck home but much easier than staying over Christmas etc. because all my things are here (I do like my things).

At some point I'll set my Etsy shop back up but probably not until after I've gotten used to my commute!

Richard II, blankets & Kingston

This weekend I've mainly been working on the big purple blanket; it's a monster and I think it'll take me most of the year but it's going to be beautiful... 

Besides that my parents came up Saturday with my brother for us to go see Richard II with David Tennant in! It's a great production ... if you can get tickets. My brother said they had cut bits of it out but it still works and Tennant is great as the vain mislead king and the set is amazing! 

Today I went to Local Hero in Kingston with Roisin for a natter and a rather lovely sausage sandwich. Kingston was pretty much sponsored by Cath Kidstone over Christmas - lot's of pretty polka dots!
