I’m a little obsessive…

22 Nov

Purely in a good way though! Not a scary, stalkerish, freaky kind of way (although that may depend on you, my readers, opinion of what equals scary obsessive). Haha.

No, my obsessiveness comes into form when I start new projects or collections. Past obsessions include Dunny vinyl figures (check out KidRobot if you don’t know what these are), Fafi (an awesome French lady graffiti artist who I still love obsessively), tapestry (this one was quite a few years ago when I was a wee lassie), and embroidery (I think I kept Jenny Hart in business for a few months! Haha). That’s only naming a few of them.

Currently, my obsessive personality has turned to hat knitting. If you follow me on Twitter or follow The Last Wednesday Knitting Club on Facebook, you will have seen my current project progress on this hat…

I knit the hat up in 3 days (a total of 3/4 hours in total). I’m just waiting for the right sized DPNs to arrive from my lovely mum for the ears and antlers!

Well, the lovely Stephanie of tinyowlknits has other hat patterns. And I’ve fallen in love with them. Like seriously.

Cupcake Kitten Hat – umm, so how cute is this hat!? I want to make both versions of it. And knit more as gifts for my friends and family.

Orchids and Fairylights Hat – just so whimsical and pretty!

These are my favourite hats. There are another couple, but these have stolen my knitting heart big time! There are quite a few other patterns on her Ravelry profile and Etsy shop too, with the bottom two images showing my current favourites…

Fawn-cho (Poncho with a Fawn on the front, hehe) – le sigh-

Meow Mitts -le sigh again-

As I said, the patterns for all of these lovely, lovely garments can be found online in Stephanie’s Etsy shop – Tiny Owl’s Magic Attic or on her Ravelry profile – tinyowlknits.
My obsession has also turned to the patterns Stephanie creates as well. But I could be obsessed with worse things, don’t you agree? Hehe. Let me know what you get obsessive over! Not the scary obsessive, just the nice, cool obsessive stuff! Haha.

    The reindeer hat is seriously brilliant! Hope those DPNs get there soon… My sideways cloche hat is getting very close to done, hurray!

    Had a lovely time at the Last Wednesday knitting club this week – it was so wonderful and cosy and you’ve gone to sooo much work! It is much appreciated.
    I can’t believe that we now have to wait two whole months til the next time! (boo-hoo-hoo…) – Have a wonderful Xmas and a relaxing time!
