CES Challenges #37 - Embellish It...

Good Morning...
Yeah its the weekend and the weather is looking good here so far.  We hope to get some more sorting and tidying done - well Steve will be whilst I supervise!! Lol
I didn't have much success learning how to knit with the magic loop needle yesterday, watched tutorial videos numerous times but still didn't crack it.  I'm determined I will do it tho...I need to make some of those adorable monsters!!

A new challenge has started over at CES Challenges and the theme set by our lovely Kaylou is...
''Embellish It''
We would like to see you use at least 3 different types of embellishments.

The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend over at Crafty Emma's Store.

I have used another image from Pollycraft which is due to be released very soon....
'Sonny Honeycloud - Life Is A Beach'
The papers are Echo Park 'Splash'...available over at Crafty Emma's Store along with Promarkers, Smooth White Card, Various Flowers, Buttons, Pins and Divine Twine.

Lovely card Emma and I like the colours you have used.

I'm also in the process of doing 'magic loop' knitting so looked back at your posts to see what you were refering to. Guess what - I also bought a monster pattern from Dangercrafts (Daphne and Delilah) after seeing some of those cute monsters on another blog. I have managed to do the magic loop method but it is very fiddly and slow. As I'm using 4 ply yarn and a 2.75 mm circular needle the stitches are small and I find it difficult to move them from the flexible part back to the rigid needle ends. At the moment I'm using 4 double pointed needles instead which is smoother but all those needles get in the way. If I make another monster I think I would knit the body part flat and join it at the back - would be a lot quicker.

By the way I think light blue, yellow and white is a lovely colour for a baby's room.

Good luck with the knitting.
