Welcome to my blog! I’ve always been interested in craftiness but I’ve recently developed a passion for knitting and after discovering some fantastic blogs like Attic24, Emma Lamb and A Creative Mint, I’ve decided to have a go myself and share my creations!
I’m just coming to the end of a 4 month work placement in deepest darkest China. I’ve been living in a city called Nanning, it’s a fairly big city, but relatively untouched by Western influence, meaning it’s a truly Chinese experience.
Sorry it’s a bit blurry, but you get the idea, they looked AMAZING!
But the best thing I’ve found in this city, apart from a pizza restaurant, is an amazing market that sells every possible crafting accessory you could ever hope for! There are stalls of buttons and beads, ribbons and material, zips and the best ones WOOL!!!
The place is more like a social club than a market, there are people sitting around knitting everywhere, and some ladies bring in their work to get advice from the stall owners, it has a really good atmosphere.
…and this is my stash!!!! I have no idea how I’m going to fit it all in my suitcase…I just couldn’t stop myself! Every time I went there I filled my backpack. Now I just have to work my way through it all, and I’m planning to share all my creations on my blog, so come back soon and see how I’m getting on…
