Glitter With a Side of Knitting

Pretty Baubles

Only 25p each!  They were a part of a mangled, jumbled up heap at the bottom of a bin but with a bit of gentle TLC they were returned to their bauble shape.  Currently, they’re adding a bit of sparkly colour to my bedroom as there are no trees in the house yet (but they might just stay here anyway!)

On a similar festive note I watched ‘Kirstie’s Homemade Christmas‘ last night which is also on again tonight and tomorrow.  I loved ‘Kirstie’s Homemade House’ so I’ve been looking forward to this and it didn’t let me down. From blowing your own glass baubles to making Christmas wreaths to making salt dough ornaments with children. It doesn’t show you step-by-step how to do something but will inspire you to have a go, find a class or google a craft.

I find it annoying that the show portrays the idea of homemade being cheap (it can be sometimes but not often).  But I love Kirstie’s quirky character, her enthusiasm is contagious and I find the show full of inspiration. :)

My knitting is fairly monogamous at the moment which means the sock from my last post is nearly finished.  I’m really pleased with how well it’s turned out, photos will be coming soon!
