Delightful Challenge Thursday –3’s Not a Crowd!

Hello how are things? Hope everyone is well!

So today we have a brand new challenge over at the Delightful Challenge Blog and our theme this week is 3’s Not a Crowd!, so we would like you to use 3 of the same embellishment on you creations please.

We have a fab sponsor offering a wonderful prize so check out the blog for details!

Now I come from a family of knitters I kid you knot (see what I did there…Oh give a girl a break!!) My mum is a prolific knitter so is my auntie and my step-niece is ‘giving it a go’. In fact it was actually my dad who taught me to knit. He also taught me to drive but the less said about that the better! So this knitting waffle is leading to my make this week which is a gift bag containing wool and needles for my friend who has taken up the hobby!
 So what would be the perfect image for a knitting gift? Well it could only be Daisy Bo Peep and her adorable little lamb! Sooooo cute!!

And my 3’s for this challenge? Well that would be 3 Pearls, 3 Buttons and 3 handmade balls of wool with needles. I’m still having nightmares over that one!

Ingredients:
Dies: Tonic ‘Nesting Circles’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – ‘wool’ paper from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Doilies, pearls and buttons from stash - Yarn charm free with mag - Wool - Cocktail sticks, beads and the patience of a saint to make the knitting needles J

So knit one purl one over to the Delightful Challenges Blog to see the fab inspiration created by the DT and don’t forget to visit the shop for the cutest digis you'll knit want to miss............. Oh please yourself!! J

Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
