oops I crocheted the boy!

 ...well his feet anyway ;o)

*the socks are from this pattern on ravelry, but I used a bigger hook so these are a bit chunkier and more like slipper socks than sock socks

granny squares bag

While I've been joining in with the leap year blanket I've been wanting to do more than one square a day so i've made this bag up from a pattern I bought on etsy, I love it! I've got to line it now but rather than crocheting the inside i'm going to do it with fabric so that the bag doesn't stretch. I found the pattern on here.

Linus Project Quilt

made this one for the Linus Project I found out about through a friend A.  I am very pleased about this as it gives me every excuse to buy gorgeous fabric in colours I might not normally to make quilts for children aged 0 -18.  It was hard going emotionally cos saying "Oh yes, I'll make one." and making one are two different things. Making a quilt for a sick child is different to making one for your own bouncing around at home.

It started with this. They all do.  A mish mash of fabric waiting for a rotary cutter lol














I hope whoever receives it likes it.

Fingerless gloves


I knitted these and Callum sewed them up for me.
They're for the Fishermens Mission. I think they wear them under their big waterproof gloves for extra warmth.

comfy hooks

I was shown this link by a friend and so I've given it a go and I must say I'm thrilled with how nice they are to use.
