Hey again

I don't know if any of you remember me, but I used to be on the "punk rock knit girls" blog aswell. I've been away from blogging land for a bit, but I've been catching up on all the blogs I used to read and I've been updating my blog again regularly like a good girl =P so yeah I'm back. I've recently knitted my first lacy project... it was tiny but it was fun hehe. You can see it on my blog if you're interested =) For those of you who don't know me.. My name is Petra, I'm 22 and I live in South Yorkshire in the UK. I'm originally from The Netherlands, but I moved here alittle over 2 years ago to live with my lush fiance David =D I don't have a job atm, but I am doing some volunteering work up at the castle near us as a conservationist it's alot of fun! My mom taught me how to knit a few years ago, but I kinda lost interest at that time and I didn't pick it back up until last year and that's when I seriously started to learn more techniques and knitted other things then just scarves lol I also taught myself how to crochet at about the same time as I started to knit again and I'm loving that aswell. I haven't crocheted a garment as of yet, but I will get there =)
Asides from that I also love to draw and I'm learning how to paint (oil, watercolour), but atm I don't have much space to paint so that's been put on hold for a bit unfortunatly.
Anywho, here is my last knitted project.. I tried to design my own wristband and I think it turned out ok. As you can see it still looks a mess lol but I'm going to steam block it and obviously weave in the ends =)

The wrist band is very groovy.
