Eresin In Stitches

C2C Gingerbread Advent Calendar

Sarah from Repeat Crafter Me designed this amazing advent calendar and I just had to make it.  You can find the free pattern here.

There are certainly things I would do different if I were ever to make it again, it’s by no means perfect and it was my first real shot at using a graph for crochet.  All in all I’m just pleased I got it finished in time for 1st December.

Cupcake Puff Hat

I just LOVE my new hat, though I wish it fit a bit better (I’ve never been great at getting hat sizing quite right).  This cupcake Puff Stitch hat was a paid pattern which you can pick up from Ravelry here.  The pattern is easy and really quick to make up. I started the hat on the bus yesterday morning and finished it in the evening while watching Community on Netflix.

Every Girl Deserves A Happy Uterus!

This pattern is available for free directly from Ravelry.  This is such a fun and quick project to make and easy to customise too!  I made this for my fabulous sister in law who is an antenatal teacher.

Party Time Baby Blanklet

I was in Hobbycraft a while back picking up supplies when I came across a James C Brett Party Time Chunky yarn which I fell in love with.  Hobbycraft do a 3 for 2 on all yarn so I gladly threw three bright balls in my basket.  My friend Rachael is due her baby in the next 2 weeks and I met up with her last week to give her this. I just used a simply V-stitch baby blanket pattern.

Gotta Catch ‘Em All

I made the starter set for Hollie’s birthday.  They are adorable.  I also tried to make matching polymer clay charms.  I’m an totally new to all things polymer clay so they aren’t the neatest.  Squirtle was my favourite one to make with clay and crochet.

School of Magic Scarf

So I run a rather small Facebook group called Crochet Scotland (if you want to join just search for us) and we recently had a crochet-a-long with the School of Magic Scarf, you can find the pattern here on Ravelry.

I decided to use the left over yarn from the Crochet Crowd’s last afghan crochet-a-long.

Something’s a bit fishy

When my friends Kayleigh and Kevin were moving in together after getting a house Kevin said “no pets, not even a goldfish”.  Well I thought screw that, if Kayleigh wants a goldfish then I’m getting her a damn goldfish! so voila!  Glad to say they both LOVED it.  I loved it so much I even made one for my desk at work.  I received a request for another one for my friend Robyn and I’m in the process of making one for our house too.

If you also want to make some goldfish then you can find the free pattern here.

The Happypotamus is finally finished!

Honestly. why it took me over a year to do 20 minutes work is beyond me.  The poor guy sat with no eyes or ears for all this time!  I finally motivated myself to get this WIP done once and for all.  20 minutes later it was done.  I could have kicked myself for leaving it so long.
