Sample makes for Rainbow Fusion

I would like to update the blog with makes that I have made before the blog existed. Here is the first of many.

I agreed to make some samples for Karina at Rainbow Fusions for her to take to shows that she was attending with her beautiful yarn. This little lot was made from one skein of 4ply yarn. You can’t tell from the angle of this picture but there is a sparkle to the yarn. It was so beautiful and easy to work with.

The end of the Easter Holidays

I hope you have all had a happy Easter and enjoyed time with your family.

I managed to complete a few Easter related projects including a crochet rabbit by Spin a Yarn Crochet which I started for my daughter, last Easter. It came out bigger than I expected (should have looked at the measurements on the pattern) and I just ran out of time to get it finished last year.So it just sat in a bag until this year. I was determined to complete it this year and it was touch and go as I worked on it until midnight on 31st March to have it ready in time for the Easter bunny.








I then made 2 further bunnies from Flo and Dot, one to gift to a friend and 1 to add to my daughter’s collection of soft toys. Isn’t it so cute? And they only took a couple of hours to work up. I wish I had found the pattern sooner so I could have made a family of them. Next year!

Pattern test – Iris hat – Update


I’ve just realised that I hadn’t updated that the Iris Hat is now finished. To be honest, it’s been finished for months!

The pictures don’t show the correct colour, it is much more purple than this.

I have had lots of comments about the colour as it is so lovely. My only criticism is that it isn’t the warmest when it is windy. Other than that, it’s a great hat and I will definitely make another.

Older post…

It looks like I am back on to hats but this time for a pattern test for Forgetmeknotpa who can be found on Instagram.

I have only just started the test any have only completed the first 4 rounds but it is looking pretty so far.

The yarn is Sirdair Giselle which is a an aran yarn in shade 0131.

More details to follow.

Happy New Year and a finished project (Westie Cushion)

Happy New Year everyone.

I have started the New Year with a completed project. I have been working on this Westie Cushion from Little Doolally.

The pattern was very well written and easy to follow. I will certainly be returning to buy more. The pattern can be found on Ravelry. If Westies are not your thing there are plenty of other patterns to tempt you for cushions and blankets for all tastes.

Unfortunately I now have to give this cute cushion away as he is a belated Christmas present but I will definitely be making another.

A New Cat Hat

I can’t believe that Christmas eve is already a week ago. Where has the last week gone?

I can now reveal another Christmas make as the new owner now has received their gift.

This hat is another from the Amigurumi Animal Hats by Linda Wright.

The recipient is a Birman cat owner and so the hat needed to reflect this with dark brown (Stylecraft Special Aran in dark brown) and cream yarn (King Cole Big Value Aran in berber) along with blue eyes.

Cat Hat

Another completed project…….

This cat hat was made for a friend after making character hats for her daughters; one requested a flamingo and the other asked for a chihuahua.

2 strands of Stylecraft aran was used. The colours are silver, graphite and fondant.  The eyes are safety eyes from Woolwarehouse. The pattern is from Animal Hats by Linda Wright.

The new owner was very pleased as the hat is lovely and warm.

So cute!
