Not much crafty goodness to report over the holidays, but enough to warrant a wee post :)  I got two new rubber stamp inkpads on sale, in royal purple and peacock blue (two fave colours) on Boxing Day.  On the 27th we hit the sales, and in that we went to Fenwick (didn’t like anything and didn’t notice anything on sale), John Lewis (where I bought 16 skeins, all half price) and the yarn stalls in Grainger Market (there are two, but they’re the same company, all very cheap but mostly acrylic).  From a cheap skein from John Lewis I made a basic loomed hat that evening, but it was for my hostess so I didn’t get a photo of it as I gave it to her within minutes of it being done :)  It was very basic anyway, you’re not missing anything…

 I’ve also finished the first of my experimental armwarmers, using the horrid yarn that came with the Reader’s Digest loom kit.  It’s working out for my purposes, but I will alter the design for t’s armwarmers.  Still, it is good to know that I can do them on the Knifty Knitter round blue loom rather than having to do them as flat panels.  I will finish the other one of mine in the next few days, then move on to his.  Then I will post patterns for both.  I’m just making things up as I go along but since I hadn’t found any for that loom before I thought other people might be interested in seeing how I did it.

 Other than that, not much crafting happened, but I need to seriously get cracking as I have a medieval tunic to make in the next week!
