Off topic - Crochet and Knitting (would you like it in a giveaway?)

Ok so this has nothing to do with make up. Sorry, totally off topic but never mind.

If you’ve read my blog in the the past you may already know that I was knocked down in February. A guy ran a red light and knocked me over at a crossing. As you can imagine, not fun. I couldn’t walk for weeks and my leg still isn’t fully healed. I class myself as so lucky though, it could have been much worse.

Annny way, as I couldn’t move and had to keep myself entertained I decided to (re)learn to knit. My mum is a knitter and she was making a whole bunch of cute little things for my new nephew. Inspired by this I picked up some knitting needles and got learning. While I was at it I thought I would learn to crochet too. My auntie has done this for years and some of the gorgeous shawls she makes are amazing.

So armed with a couple of how to book and the internet I got to learning. I’m still learning but this is my latest project.

It’s the most complex item I have made to date and it aint perfect but I’m still really pleased with it. I’m going to make another with another type of yarn.

However I did think of making another the same as this to give away on here. Would this be something you guys would be interested in?
