Eresin In Stitches

Amigurumi Bunnies

Another birthday gift for a friend who has two really life rabbits. I tried to use colours to match her rabbits. I treated myself o some lovely cotton from Wool and the Gang which was lovely to work with.

Harry Potter House Scarf bookmarks

These were super quick to make up I did all four in one day. Which is quite an accomplishment with a toddler around. Single crochet 11 wide changing colour every 5 rows for 5 repeats, add some tassels and voila!

Cactus We Can’t Kill

Simply Crochet issue 59 came with a small kit to make these rather adorable cactus plants. The kit only had enough yarn to make one cactus but I was really keen to make both for a friend so I had a rummage through my rather substantial stash.

Exciting New Things

I finally decided to open that Etsy shop my friends have been pestering me about.  It doesn’t have much on it at the moment but I hope to add more soon. If you want to bookmark the page then you can find a link in the sidebar.
I have also now created a Facebook page to go along with the blog and shop so feel free to pop along and like my page (link also in the sidebar ) 🙂

Dragon Wing Shawl

While at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival I spent a small fortune on this cake of hand dyed gradient yarn from Hungary.  The yarn is made from silk and baby camel and is one of the softest things I’ve ever laid my hands on.  The soft downy fur from the underside of the baby camel is used. The seller does have an esty shop that you can find here. I decided to make the dragon wing shawl and used some Drops baby alpaca silk yarn to edge around.

Ice Cream Keyring

Who loves ice cream?  So this one isn’t edible but you can take it everywhere you go!  The pattern for this was from the Friendly Red Fox.

Little Box of Crochet May Box – Jenny’s Mandala

This piece was an absolute joy to work on and I often thought of Jenny throughout the process. I haven’t blocked this piece yet but I’m pretty keen on getting this one framed. If you would like to sign up to a monthly Little Box of Crochet you can do so here.

Triangle Granny Scarves

As part of Reddit’s Yarn Exchange 2017 I was matched with someone from Texas who went me 2 skeins of Red Heart yarn which is unavailable here in the UK and also 2 sweet roll cakes.

I decided to go on a bit of a scarf spree with all the yarn.  The granny triangle scarf is really easy to make and I added tassels on the ends with the leftover yarn.  I think the red sweet roll is my favourite.
