Candle Holder   Leave a comment

I really enjoyed making these little tea light holders. They are made from beading wire, gauge 28. It was a bit hard to do at first as I had never used wire before to crochet with and actually didn’t know that you could crochet with wire. So it just goes to show, nothing is impossible. I think they would look nice outside on a wall if you were having a barbecue. I made them in purple and teal colours. I would love your feedback.

Baby Cardigan   Leave a comment

Here I am back again after a few years away from publishing anything. It is nice to be back too. The weather here in Bandon is a bit overcast, I hope it doesn’t rain.

Anyway, onto things knitting. As you might know I love knitting and crocheting, baby items in particular as they don’t take long to do and there is such a great range of wool

Pentax Digital Camera

out there now to use.

This is my latest item which I finished while ago. It is a copied pattern. I used Rico Baby Prints which is 100% acrylic but so soft to use, so it will be nice and soft against baby’s skin. It is machine washable, but having said that I would use a very gentle wash.

If you are interested in it you can get in contact with me through Knitted Toys and Jumpers on Facebook.

Here are some of the projects I have done. 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.

Re-starting the blog   Leave a comment

Hi all, I haven’t been doing my blog for a long time as I found it hard to keep it going. But now I will give it another go. I have been busy enough doing different bits of knitting, like toys and baby things. I also do a lot of crochet too. I hope you will start following me again. I will psot some photos later of the different things I have made.

Dressy Jacket

Back of Jacket

Hi everybody, I suppose you have all forgotten about me? I haven’t been on for so long. I changed my computer and had other things to do, I hope you didn’t miss me too much!! Anyway I am now back and on the right is my latest project. It is a dressy looking jacket which I am knitting for my mum for Christmas, yes you read that right, it is for Christmas. It is done using King Cole wool. The colour I would call it would be heather. As you can see from the picture there is a big rib of 30 single rib stitches, and what I would call double cable stitch, and every few rows is reverse stocking stitch. I started it last week in between doing something else. There are 3 colours in the wool which are pink, mauve and grey. I thought it would make a change from knitting in plain colours and I know my mum likes this colour. I will keep you posted as the jacket grows. And I promise I won’t stay away so long in future. So I hope you are all happy to have me back as I am to be back.Talk to you all soon, and as I always say, keep those needles clicking away.
