My Favourite Things Knitted By My Grandmother

My Grandmother has a real talent. In just a few days, she can make you a stunning jumper, out of bright or pastel colours in almost any design. Here I will show you some my most favourite things she had knitted me over the past few years.
Here is very heavy and warm jumper in light blue and white colours. Note the amazing detail she put in! I adore this, and wore it all winter!

I like this jumper mainly because of the bright colours my granny used. I know some of you Potterheads are thinking: Oh look, Gryffindor colours! And you're right.  I asked my granny to knit this especially when I was visiting her, and I absolutely adored Harry Potter. 
This one, although it look finished, is not quite. My granny gave me the oh-so-very-hard task of stitching together some of the part, to create a design, and I just haven't gotten around to it yet. It's very pretty, and purple happens to be one of my favourite colours. My mum has the same thing in red, which I have also yet to finish!

Fellowship of the Wordsmiths

I found a great website not too long ago called "Fellowship of the Wordsmiths". It has all you need to know about Elvish (Quenya, Sindarin, e.t.c.) and the grammar and dictionaries. If anyone is interested in learning the wonderful and mystical language of the elves created by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, this is one of the best places to go. Here is the link.
That's about it. Tell me what you think of it! Namárië!
p.s. you can check what 'namárië' means in their dictionary, or you can guess. It's not that hard judging that this is the end of the post!

The Start of the Beginning: About Me

Hello there and welcome to my blog! I'm Elvish Kitty, by the way.
Why don't I start by telling you something of myself?
I love all types of arts & crafts, such as painting, embroidery and creating a collage. I have a special little notebook where I glue on random bits and bobs I find around my house and that I've collected from going to places, and I create a sort of keepsake notebook that no one can read and/or understand. That's just the way I am: extremely random!
Moving on, you have to know that I can go off topic so well, that I will confuse you as to what I am saying. For example, if we were talking about Santa Claus, be prepared that the conversation might take an unexpected turn down the alley of T.V controllers. It happens, but I try to keep my words to a certain theme. Lord of the Rings would be the most common conversational subject at the moment, seeing as that is my very favourite book (That's what I was thinking of when I created a name, Elvish Kitty). It's a fantastic book, and if you have not already read it, I strongly suggest you do. Feel free tell me what you think of it, or ask any questions, at any time, and I will try to answer them as best as I can. If I can.
