This is the introduction of another knitting project for Nikki. I’m currently in the process of writing up my thesis for my PhD so I am spending most of my days sat in my desk infront of my computer screens.

In addition to the Sewing Stitching Santa I also entered the Knitting one, and I’m glad I did because making things for Becki at Dartmoor Yarns was such fun, I loved looking through her blog and finding a new blog to follow 🙂 I had a great time opening the present that I received for my knitting parcel, the outside… Read more »
