Super Productive Sunday

Wow! I got loads done this weekend :) First of all I started a new scarf, I'm following the 'Alien Illusion' pattern from the Stitch 'N' Bitch book. Love this book, would recommend it to anyone interested in getting into knitting, it teaches you all about needles, wools, techniques and has lots of fun explanations to help you remember things and some cool patterns too. This scarf is really interesting as it uses different areas of bumpiness and smoothness so that you can only see the image of the aliens face from certain angles, I cant wait to see how it turns out! Plus I thought it was going to take me ages but it's actually going pretty quickly.

I also finished the piggy this weekend! He's a bit rough around the edges but that just adds to his adorableness ^_^ I'm wondering now if I can figure out how to make other animals in the same kind of way

I also did a bunch of other stuff. Made some more fimo charms, so much happier with the results this time although I made the mistake of buying translucent white instead of regular white so a couple of the things looked wrong after I baked them. Did some more mini cross-stitch for christmas cards as well, really need to get on with finishing all of these now though!
