This year, I will be doing something a little bit different for The Yarnvent Calendar! 2012 will be the year of the wreath!

After the success of my 3 wreath yarnbombs for the first Yarnvent Calendar, I have had many requests asking for one so that people can put them up this year! So, I have decided to make 24 wreath's this year!

48 Snaily - 24th September 2012

Hey guys!

Sorry it's been a while! I'm busy working on lots of projects at the moment- most importantly : The Yarnvent Calendar 2012!

I decided to make a wee something to put out this month. I started knitting with my new neon wool (which is awesome) and I wasn't sure what to create. Half way through I decided perhaps a pole cover? Then a caterpillar? Finally an idea hit me- a snail! Then the unexpected happened. I fell in love with it. Lesson learned- don't give a yarnbomb cute little eyes.

So here he is in all his glory! I present "Snaily". I hope you all love him as much as I do and I promise there will be a real yarnbomb soon for Halloween.

Isn't he adorable???!!!
As promised, a Halloween yarnbomb will follow very soon!
Also this month, I set up my first ever shop, ShadowStitchDesigns- please take a wee look for some Shadow_Stitch and Yarnvent Calendar 2012 merchandise! http://www.cafepress.co.uk/shadowstitchdesigns
Also, if you haven't yet, please join The Official Yarnvent Calendar Page:

47 Festival Pom Pom Bunting - 16th August 2012

Hey Guys,

Sorry it's been a while.

I've got a very busy few months ahead of me in my 'real life'.

I'll try my best to do a wee yarnbomb here or there over the next few months but it'll only be a few small things.

I will still of course be running the second Yarnvent Caednar again! I cannot wait! I've got loads of ideas that I can't wait to share with you all.

Any way, as some of you may know, it is Festival time in Edinburgh! I decided to make some pom pom bunting to put on a bench in Princes Street Gardens to brighten the place up a little bit! I used bright pink, yellow and neon orange to capture the colourful nature of the festival!

I hope you all like it!

I hope you all like my new tags and my new logo! What do you think? I'd love to hear your opinions!

See you all soon,

46 Hampden Park Yarnbomb Hearts - July 2012

Hey guys,

As you may know, a rather large sporting event is taking place in London this year!

Up here in Scotland, there's not much buzz so we decided to do something about it!

Several lovely ladies and groups have come together to decorate Hampden Park area for the football and I sent some wee "sporty" coloured hearts along to the event!

The lovely ladies turned my hearts into a mobile along with some cute pom-poms!

Hope you like :)

I'm so glad I could take part!

Check out the lovely ladies that made it possible/contributed:


Well, I'm off to click, click, click away! I've knitted the base for my first piece for The Yarnvent Calendar 2012! I'm so excited! I'm putting a little Shadow_Stitch twist on my pieces this year! Eeeek! Can't wait to share! Less than 5 months to go!

Shadow, Sunshine, Love.

44 Cheshire Cat - 16th July 2012

Hey guys,

Well, it's been a while! Don't worry though, I've been working away on about 20 different projects - too much at once!!!!

I've recently rediscovered my obsession with Fairytales and I've decided to start off with my favourite: "Alice In Wonderland".

So, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you all to the Cheshire Cat.

I'm rather proud of how he turned out! I love his manic grin!

Later on today, i'll be posting details of my first ever Yarnbomb Competition to win 1 of 3 special edition Shadow_Stitch originals.

I hope your all as excited as I am!

Shadow, Sunshine, Love.
