I'm hooked. Sometimes for hours! I just can't help myself. (I just popped over there to grab the Pinterest button to link this post and lost myself for another 10 minutes!)

There are so many inspiring images on there and lots of links to free patterns. Here is a round-up of some of my favourites...

Crocodile stitch booties - from BonitaPatterns, Etsy

Apparently there is a similar pattern on Ravelry for free.

knitted snowmen

I'd like to come up with a crochet pattern for these.

Pine cone elves
How gorgeous are these?! I fancy making these with a Nordic twist.

free pattern for mini star bunting
What a great idea for Christmas bunting.

knitted owls
Owl puffs! Pattern available on Ravelry.

crochet pear coasters

Handspun art yarn - Etsy

Beautiful art yarn. I hope to be able to spin like this one day! However, many seasoned spinners look down on this inferior type of spinning! I just LOVE it!

Such sweet little needle felted matryoshka.
Just a few of my favourite pins. If you'd like to see more you can click the Pinterest button in the sidebar.

Pinterest have just introduced 'secret boards' that you can share with your chosen friends only. I would, of course, share them with all of you but I need some ideas for 3 new boards. Any suggestions?
Have a good week,

  1. Wow, some great inspiration to be found but so far I have failed to catch the Pinterest bug which I feel is probably a good thing, as I spend enough time as it is on the computer!!
    Those little crocodile boots are soooooo sweet and I love the owls and stars. Better stop looking now as my current list of 'must do' projects will be out the window and i'll be off in a completely new direction!!

  2. I just didn't get Pinterest for ages and ages but now I am another addict.... I nip in there for inspiration and come out hours later totally overloaded with ideas but no time to make them! but it is such fun :)

  3. Becky what great images...I'm trying soooo hard to resist Pinterest but realised the other day that I seem to use the bookmark facility on my browser to do the same thing but in a less accesible and much less beautiful way!!
    I adore the art yarn - would love to be able to create something as colourful and many textured as that - sure you can spin something as amazing sometime!

  4. Once I get on Pinterest I can be gone for hours. Once I drag myself out I am buzzing with wanting to make so many things. I am being naughty at the moment and not getting down to the doing part; I am just indulging in eye candy and plans and maybes! I like those little snowmen; I could see them all strung together as a garland maybe. See - I am at it again!!

  5. Wishing you and your family a very happy Christmas Becky
