It is a  wet day here today in Bandon and quite breezy too. Still what can we do? We can’t control the weather mores the pity. Anyway to make the day a bit better here are some items I have knitted and crocheted a while back. The first picture is a child’s cardigan. I love this as it is knitted in one piece up to the armholes, I also like the pattern in it. I used 100% wool so it is nice and warm. The second is wool from Aldi. It is a lemon sparkle yarn and so easy to knit. I like the scallop edging on the neck and one button. The the next is something completely different, a crocheted owl. Some of my friends would tell you I love owls, and so of course I had to crochet one. They can be made in any colour which makes it fun really. Then we have the last picture which is my Christmas wreath which is always on my door only at Christmas!!, I decided to make a frosted looking wreath, so I used a grey sparkle and white sparkle wool, and knitted holly leaves and berries and I think it looks really good. That is all for today, so I hope you like these. It has started raining again so there is only one thing to do and that is to get back to the knitting. Talk to you all again soon. Enjoy your weekend whatever you may be doing.

The cream bag is an Aran wool bag. The flap is moss stitch with a tassel. The main body of the bag has cables. On the back there are 2 straps so you can wear the bag on your back. The other bag is made of squares and the pattern is the African flower. The handles are plastic. both bags are lined. The dolls are Morag and Bertie Bloomer. I was really proud of Bertie as I entered him into Skibbereen show which was in July and he won 1st prize. I have since sold him. Morag has also been sold to the same person who bought Bertie. Then I have Olaf the Snowman which I really enjoyed crocheting. He is made in one piece. My gorgeous grandson has him. The rest of the things are baby clothes.

Something completely different   Leave a comment

Crocheted Hot Water Bottle Cover

Crocheted with left over Wool

Hello all,Well after knitting the jumper, I thought I would do something completely different, and here it is. It is a crocheted hot water bottle with a snowflake motif.The stitches are double crochet and treble crochet. I crocheted it in a day, so as you can imagine it went up very quickly. I wouldn’t be brilliant at the crochet but I enjoy it and love doing different things. It is really versatile, and there are many forms of crochet, e.g. camel, and Tunisian to name two, both of which i do not know how to do.I hope you like this. Until the next time, happy crocheting!!
