KIT - that's my middle name

Oh gosh, it has been that long since I've blogged. A lot has been going on recently so been a bit at work and out of work. Also my puffed up eyes is making me really tired. I think it is hay fever, but I'd better get a diabetes check as well, it tends to puff after I've eaten a lot of sugar. I hope it is not diabetes, image not being able eat cakes, chocolates and biscuits.
Anyway, I've received two lovely sewing KITs from Ruth (I won the giveaway...hurray!) and Kyoko.

Ruth's package was so pretty that I didn't want to take it apart.
Kyoko's lovely purse tutorial KIT so pretty too.
Thanks you girls!!!
We met up at I-Knit this week, so I can say thank you in person. It was so nice to meet up and chat about wool and knitting. It was so full inside that we decided to sit outside and we got lots of attention and questions from people walking by and the Lovely Craig gave us lots of sweets. He's so sweet.....get it....hee hee hee. I'm so glad that Kyoko and Ruth was there to give me moral support whilst sewing up my daughter's cardigan......and I'm happy to say that it is finished, just in time for her birthday next week!! Yay! Thank you girls (again). Well almost, I need to sew on the buttons. Hee hee hee. Here is a choice of buttons we had....which one do you think will go with the cardigan?

Now that the Rascal's cardigan is finished, it means that I can start on other projects. I think I'll better catch up with my sewing. I'm heading to Clapham/Tooting that way, so I'm planning on visiting my favourite craft shop. Yay, for the long weekend. Hope everyone have great break...I know I need one.
I haven't forgotten about the will take place, just need to think about what to giveaway....hee hee hee.
Have a nice long weekend everyone.

It was really great to meet you on Thursday :D Wasn't it a great fun! Thank you for moral support too (and the escort ;P ). I think we should make this into a monthly (or once every two monthly) thing. I never knew there were so many people knitting in one place. it was my first knitting evening and I definitely will attend there again. Thank you for giving me the courage to go. It was so nice to meet Ruth too. Enjoy your kit!! Have a great weekend :D
P.S. I think a lighter coloured buttons will look nice on the cardigan. Well done for finishing it!

I'm really sad to have missed the meet up at IKnit. Maybe next time?

Both the kits look great and I can't wait to see you working on them
