I follow a really great blog called Maybe Matilda and you can visit Rachel here.
She's got some brilliant tutorials on there and I wanted to try out the knotted crochet headband, I used a small bit of dusky pink Debbie Bliss - Andes yarn and whipped it up in less than an hour whilst watching a film one evening. It's a wonderfully simple idea, I just wouldn't think of doing it myself.
Here is her tutorial on how to make it. I think it looks very cute... but Ray's reaction was 'What is that on her head!? She looks like she's out of Flashdance.' Not Quite the look I was going for...
I had a wander into town today and popped into Next as I remembered that their sale was on but I think I was quite late as everything that was left was either a size 6 or a size 20! So as I'm neither of those, I didn't find anything for myself but I did find this extremely cute pair of shoes for Rose. A bargain at £3! Cute eh!?
I'm annoyed at myself for not making the most of the sunshine today, I spent most of indoors. Rose was napping in the morning when we could have gone out, then had Sainsbury's being delivered 12-1pm and then she had another nap in the afternoon... I spose I could have woken her up to go out somewhere but she was being particularly grumpy, so I didn't really fancy risking it. Hopefully it'll be sunny tomorrow and we can get out to enjoy it.
I spent some time whilst she was napping updating my flickr and ravelry. I'm beginning to fill in all of my finished projects on ravelry, it's quite satisfying seeing all of the finished objects all displayed together. I didn't realise how much stuff you can actually do on there, I've only ever really used it for browsing different patterns before.
Okay, I'm off to go and finish my giveaway project and then hopefully I can do the post tomorrow.
