My creative space

Apparently today is Thursday. For some reason it's Monday in my head, so I was a bit surprised to see My Creative Space popping up around blogland today!

My creative space has hit a bit of a speed bump today. My sewing machine has decided that enough is enough and it WILL NOT WORK UNTIL IT'S HAD A SERVICE!!!! So after having a mild huffy fit because I want to get sewing on my pinny, I've been knitting instead. Hurrumph.
Last time I was at the yarn shop, I discovered these very funky little stopper thingies to put on the end of your DPN's (probably so that your socks don't fall off). I figure it means I can use my DPN's as normal knitting needles. And then I can use another one as a cable needle!

Go and visit Kirsty to see many creative spaces!

Those end thingy's are very cool. I'd like to get some to stop my knitting from coming away from the needle when it's in my bag.

Pity about your machine too. Hope it behaves itself once it's serviced.

Those little rubber thingies are ingenious!

A sewing machine with an attitude? That will not do!

Kylie said...

Wow, those stoppers are a great idea - thanks for this :)
Lovely colourful space. Hope your machine is happily humming again soon. K

I hope your machine is back home with you soon working again. I really like those stoppers for knitting needles, how clever!:)

Is that one of the clothkits in the making in the background? Good luck with getting the sewing machine back up and running. I recently had both mine serviced. Didn't notice too much with the sewing machine but the difference in the overlocker was amazing - it was back to new again.

Nothing more frustrating than an uncooperative machine! Just checked out your flickr, what lovely things you have made!

Grrr, sewing machines. What the hell is a DPN?

Kirsty said...

My machine's a bit moody too...most frustrating.
