In Bed With Boys & Bunting: Episode 3 + GIVEAWAY!

Hello Lovelies!
We do hope you are all having a splendid week?
After a slightly longer break than anticipated we're back and ready to jump into bed with you with our 3rd instalment of "In Bed With Boys & Bunting!!"

We have tons to natter about, so go pop the kettle on, grab yourself a packet of Jammy Dodgers, a blanket and come nestle up in bed, as we talk your ear off for the next 40 minutes or so...

Some Links and Info from Episode 3

Candy Clock Homespun Feature

We were very proud at the end of last week to receive a copy of "Homespun Magazine", which we were lucky enough to have our work featured in.

The magazine from September of last year features all sorts of food inspired crafty projects. The magazine really is a feast for the eyes and our crocheted candy clock fits in nicely with all of the other wonderful creations.

All of the candy from our featured "Candy Clock" can be found here on our pattern page, so you can also try giving your own candy clock a whirl!

Yarn Shade Cards

When It comes to buying yarn we love to know exactly what we are getting.
Purchasing online is convenient, but means that you can't always guarantee that the colours and texture are going to be what you had expected.
As different types of yarn seems to be pretty limited here in Stuttgart, we have purchased these rather handy shade cards. They are great for being able to play around with colour and a sure guarantee that the yarn we order online will be exactly what we're expecting. At the moment we have two shade cards:

  

  

Books

On my trip back to London, I definitely went a little wild spending my paycheck.
I don't feel too guilty though, as I could be wasting my money on a lot worse than books.

I loved spending my time browsing through all of the books in the gigantic Waterstones store, just off of Picadilly Circus. Such a treat!

Here's what I ended up buying:

     

I also Picked up "Knitters Knowledge" by Debbie Bliss. A gorgeous encyclopedia of everything a knitter could need.

Knitters knowledge along with the very user friendly "Knitty Gritty" are our recommendations for harmonious knit learning. These two books will give you everything you need to know, to get started with your knitting.

  
Giveaway!!!

  55. Hi Guys, loved this vlog as in the other two, so bright and cheerful! I also love going to Loop in London but have definitely found that for my budget it's best to go with one or two projects already planned so that I can indulge just in the yarn for those! The giveaway looks fun, I really need to increase my cotton stash so that would be a fantastic prize to win! Love from Claire in Sussex
