Corner to corner

Morning! So after suffering with a migraine this week I wanted to keep crocheting but with something that didn’t need much concentration. After going through YouTube for a bit I came across the corner to corner  blanket. 

My nan gave me a bag of wool so I thought I’d use some of that! 

This blanket, once you get going is nice and easy to make! 

It is only small….kind of a car seat or pram blanket (or a doll blanket). But I like it! It’s about 21 inches square.  

Also I thought it would be nice for a break from making Christmas presents, my hopenis for next year to be able to sell some of my items so ingress this is my first piece of ‘stock!’ 

Anyway enjoy your Sunday!


Winging it…!

Sorry ban pun!

So the next gift I made was an owl basket. First time I’ve made something without using a pattern. 

I think it turned out well, the bit I’m not happy with is on the inside,the back of the beak. I just don’t know what to do about it as I don’t want to use a lining. Oh well.

Anyway enjoy your day!

Hat and scarf

So I made my father in law a hat and scarf set for Christmas…

I love the way this wool comes up when its made! I did the same style design and the little set I made (just scaled up). I’ve kept it simple and think it looks ok. Just hoping he will like it!! 

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Men’s neck scarf

So I’ve finially made the other half to the hubbys orange hat….a neck scarf for when he’s riding his scooter! 

Sorry he’s an unwilling model! 
I kept it simple…. I used the scarf pattern I used for my friends little one, and did it wider and longer then sewed it up for form a cowl type item! 

Enjoyvthe rest of your Sunday!


Just a quick post to show you a Christmas gift I’ve made for some friends of ours!

My hubby picked the colours and I made them up! I’ll admit I’m not sure on the colours and when I put the pink one together it reminded me of strawberries and cream!!!! Oh well!

I used the pattern out of Edwards menagerie, but with the tweaked ear pattern….especailly after hubby comments on the last bunny I made! (See post from 25 may 2017) 

Enjoy your Evening!

Hubbys new hat!

So i made abit of a gag gift for my hubby… he wanted an orange hat for work (he works in a warehouse) so i decided to create one. 

Well I found  a pattern I liked on You tube  but it came up small…so small it fits my son!!!

So I had to alter the pattern slightly by making a couple of extra increase rounds and a bit longer on the sides! 

I like the ‘cuff’  idea and thinks it works well! 

Anyway here’s my hubby wearing his gift!

(And our son photo bombing!) 

Enjoy your evening!

Eeyore number 2….

So I had a rare afternoon to myself so I decided to make my MIL an eeyore (as the other one wasn’t eeyore enough!!) 

He came out small but it’s definitely a hit!!

As usual I followed someone on you tube. I found her video hard to follow but I followed her written pattern ok. Eeyore came out ok so I’m Happy!

Enjoy your evening
