Knitting and Beading















I've knitted these for my nephew and my friend has two of her boys with birthdays in March. The picture's a bit dark! The blue cardi at the back is knitted in chunky wool, the chocolate brown is in double knit and the light brown is in double knit, it has a ribbed pattern round the bottom and cuffs but you can't see it very well

The skull hat is for one of my daughters friends.

Eden has also been beading, she's made a necklace with hearts on for one of Callums "friends" for Valentines Day and some earrings to go with the skull hat and a bracelet for one of Callums (otherwise known as Romeo!) other "friends" for Valentines Day.

Leap Year Blanket

back into making granny squares and joining them as I go using this method so that I don't end up with a pile of squares that need sewing.
I'm joining in with the leap year blanket group on facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/169037333198318/ a square a day and by the end of the year a banket should be finished . . . . . . well if I don't get way laid !! It's interesting too to see the squares being made by the other crocheters on there and supportive having people to chat to :)

Solar System Quilt






I cut this out on New Year's  Day.  It's for B and he loves it.  He was hovering over me, as I finished the binding, to take it away. The backing is blue flannel and it's really cosy. It's the 5th quilt since the end of November. Not bad going considering.
