We love to make Xmas cards every year, it's getting harder these days as William has such huge feet!
Anyway, seasons greetings from my little people xx
This is a great scarf pattern for beginner knitters since not only is it easy/quick to knit with chunky wool and big needles, but it is also made with just two basic stitches: knit and purl.
If you have never knit a stitch in your life then head to YouTube and learn the basics, cast on, knit, purl, and cast off.
You will need:
* chunky wool
* 9mm/10mm knitting needles (I used 10mm)
* Darning needle
Gauge: Doesn’t really apply here. This scarf can be knit until you reach your desired length.
Cast on 30 stitches.
Row 1: Knit all stitches, but instead of wrapping yarn once around the needle like in a standard knit stitch, wrap yarn twice around the needle.
Row 2: You are now going to purl all stitches. When you start this purl row, it will look as if you have two stitches for every stitch you’ve knitted (this is because you wrapped the yarn around the needle twice in Row 1) but, it’s really just one big loop. Purl into the first loop and slide it and the other loop off the needle, repeat for entire row.
Continue repeating Row 1 and Row 2 until you reach desired length. I made my scarf long enough to wrap twice around my neck - approximately 44 inches long (approximately 100 rows).
Cast off. Use scissors to break yarn, leaving a long tail of approximately 20 inches for stitching together the two ends of your scarf.
To complete your infinity scarf, lie it on a flat surface and bring the two ends together (while still lying flat) so that they meet. Stitch the two ends together with your darning needle using the tail from your cast off edge.
Job done! I'm so proud of myself!
So I'd heard the hype about this new Younique make up brand, and a close friend has become and agent, or presenter I should say, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on the 3d mascara and give it a try.
The mascara wands feel like they are made of ceramic, they are smooth and substantial feeling in your hand. You get two mascaras in a presentation box, and it costs £23 (£29 with delivery when ordering from online, when I start selling Younique myself I will be able to deliver to my local clients).
It's easy to apply.
And it's just wow to look at.
And the best thing? No nasty chemicals . its natural.
I've done a comparison in the last photo with my own mascara, and you can see the difference. The 3d lash mascara is epic. Love it.
Most of my instagram feed is buzzing with make up artists doing ombre lipstick, so here's my attempt at it!
It's not as easy as one might think, but I love the effect, my lips look plump, give us a kiss?!
