New Knitting Bin

I am so pleased with my most recent purchase, that i really had to tell you all about it.
I have been needing a bigger recepticle for my yarn of late, as i mostly knit or crochet in double which means i need 2 balls of wool at a time. And especially doing colour work, i then need even more at a time. My knitting bagasket that my sister made me is great but i need to hold more volume when sitting in front of the TV crocheting :)

So i wanted a basket or a box to put beside my chair.
I found this online - good old ikea. The Viren Waste Bin from Ikea - Advertised as a bathroom bin, it has a hole in the lid ? why -
Well for me this means i dont have to cut a hole in it.
It can happily hold 6 x 100g of wool and allow me to poke the working yarn through the hole, and work with the lid on :)
Now my living room is a little tidyer and it cost me less than £3!!

On to recent creations.... Some hats for the winter sports mentalists - Snowboard or Ski

I am such a busy bee at the moment, i have so many ideas and things i want to do that i really cant fit them all in, but i want to complete them all now!!!!

I am busy trying to sort out a custom ordering section for my site while trying to make some stock hats to demonstrate all the custom possibilities.
