The July Made It Challenge – It’s VOTING time

Eeek! It’s time to let your fingers do the talking – soooooo exciting.  But before you rush off to VOTE, here are our final 4 entries ♥


Knitted Hooded Cowl by Pretty Blue Bird Studio

Yes, it actually DOES snow in South Africa but it’s kinda like the Blue Moon thing! Here with her comfy, cosy, woolly and of course, FABULOUS looking knitted hooded cowl, is Madeleine of Pretty Blue Bird Studio – made just in time for a touch of  snow to hit the Cape’s mountains.  I love the drawstring element to it, gives it a very trendy look in my opinion and that it’s so easy to tuck nicely into a coat with none of the extra dangly bits.

I get a bit teary on so many levels when I read about The Little Yellow Duck Project. Basically, people are making little ducks and leaving them in random place for other to pick up and take home – all to increase awareness of the need for blood, bone marrow and organs tissue donations. Also made by Madeleine of Pretty Blue Bird Studio is Kiki, a cheery yellow duck  beautifully knitted and waiting to be taken to her new home. For more info and how to take part, click on here

Infinity Arm Knitted Snood by Bev Banet

Arm knitting – genius! So happy that there are so many of you out there having lots of fun and huge successes with this fun new trend to rock the yarn world. How wonderfully cosy and colourful is this infinity snood, made by Bev Banet one of our Facebook members! I personally had an awful experience, ending up only with two knotted and sore arms, a pathetic looking spaghetti thingy  ♥ ♥ ♥


Moss Box by NanaCathyDotCom

Thank heavens for people like NanaCathy who bring us the world through different eyes. If that’s weird (according to her family) then that’s wonderful, bring it on!  Her moss-inspired box cover is beautiful and created with such an amazing amount of passion. I was thoroughly entertained by her post and was left feeling once again inspired to allow my imagination to flow. Thank you Nana Cathy and please bring us more!
