Never again will I do waistcoat stitch. Don’t get me wrong, I am really pleased with the knit look and the hat overall, but perhaps I crochet too tightly as I found it very difficult to get the hook in the right place.
I have to admit that my yarn stash is getting slightly out of hand again, so I thought a great way to use up some yarn was to make some hats for preemie and newborns to donate to hospitals. They are so quick to make up and a great stash buster.
This was a tricky few rounds with a fair bit of frogging involved but I got there in the end. Please excuse the stitch markers. Thank goodness for YouTube that’s all I can say!
I was given this gorgeous kit by The Crafty Kit Co. as a Secret Santa gift from Robyn. I couldn’t wait to make this Nessie, I just LOVED the hat!
I started this blanket a few years ago and was something I only worked on now and again. I decided this year was going to be the year that I finished it, however when I hauled it out of the cupboard it had been stored it I realised it was already huge. So that made the resolution to finish the blanket pretty easy!
A new project for this year is the Mandala Madness. This comes in 18 parts and I’m rotating this with 2 other projects so I aim to complete a new part every 3 weeks or so.
If you were interested in starting your own Mandala Madness you can find details here.
for my Mandala Madness I’m using Stylecraft Special DK yarn and a 4mm hook
I started a tradition of making a Star Wars figure as a gift for Chris’ brother for Christmas. I have previously made Yoda and Wicket the Ewok. This years gift was Chewbacca.
