‘At Last’ my little bag is finished……. hooray!

DSCF1517
I am in string bag heaven! Just finished the little denim number and I am looking forward to taking it out for a jolly jaunt tomorrow. I couldn’t resist tying a white rose onto the handle with some navy lace. I am celebrating with some Glen Miller on the record player. I have started another in chalky pink! This could develop into an obsession.
One of my favourite tracks ‘At Last’ blissful listening……

Happy crocheting.

Happy hands are warm hands…….

I have just got in from ‘Les Mis’ and feel quite emotionally drained so have started making hand warmers again. Today I visited the wool shop to get some more yarn. I am using Monsoon, a James Brett yarn (30% wool and 70% acrylic) with a 5 hook and Stylecraft Chunky Harlequin using a 6 hook. I like the rich colour palette and the unpredictability of the colours. I have decided to knit the left and right hand consecutively using two balls. I sometimes despair of having to crochet the other hand! It’s all in the mind as it will still take the same amount of time. I am waiting for the James Brett ‘Passion’ to come in, a lovely chunky yarn, but it has been delayed and I think Spring will be in the air before it arrives. I have an unfinished pair of H/W’s to complete using passion………but the passion may have run out before I get it.

Creating chaos in the kitchen…..

I will soon be forced to take control and create order. The pile of offcuts from my pom pom hat forms a small hill on the table. It is waiting to be transformed into something. There are small balls of wool waiting to become hearts, a box of felted hearts waiting for flowers and a china bowl with flowers waiting to adorn hearts. Tomorrow I will have to sort out the muddle. I can’t possibly do it tonight as I am making a pin cushion….

Little Hearts

DSCF0673 DSCF0668 DSCF0678DSCF0681
My latest makes, two little heart pockets. I like making these as they are lovely to hang in the house or put a little gift in. I crochet two hearts and then I needle felt them and add decoration. Small flowers and a ‘with love’ label. The weather is grim here today so making these has reminded me of Spring.

In the Pink…

I started crocheting about two years ago. I love to knit but found I could only knit for a limited time span as it caused my hands to ache. I tried bamboo needles and being lighter to hold they seemed to help a bit. I still knit but mainly, what I call, mini knits! Short periods of time that are manageable. I am now ‘hooked on crochet’ and always have lots of projects on the go in various places in my cottage. I have just finished my crocheted ‘In the Pink’ tea cosy for Valentines day. It seems to have taken a long time to complete ¬†and I am glad to see it finished……… Here it is sitting on the window sill on a very welcome sunny¬†morning.
