Tapestry Crochet

I'd never tried tapestry crochet before, so after stumbling on this cute pattern I thought I'd give it a try but as you can see from the original pattern I umm... well, I didn't finish it. Turns out attempting tapestry crochet for the first time with old scratchy yarn just isn't my thing!

The Big Project Bag Swap, Australia.



Do you use project bags for your craft projects?  I sure do and you know what, I wish I had bigger ones! All the projects that I'm knitting & crocheting at the moment seem to be at minimum of 4 balls and all my project bags are way too small!

Winterist

Well, would you look at that. 
I knitted lace. 
Chunky lace but hey it's still lace!

Stripey Fingerless Gloves

 

I remember as a kid, my Dad used to say "if you hold Marie's hand she'll walk forever with you" … I think the same goes for Laney except now that it's mid winter, those little hands are getting super cold, so the solution was to make her some gloves.

Pie Time crochet van ....and my own errata for the pattern!

 
 Confession: I crocheted this van for my son last year and wanted to see how he used it before doing a Show & Tell on my blog!

Wedgies for Joe


I just finished crocheting this cushion for Joe and he loves it!
This pattern was from a designer called '10 Hours or Less', so I of course, kept track of how long it took to make.

Quick & Easy hat

Further to my super sized shawl that I finished the other day, I then needed a hat to keep my head warm.

Snuggly Winter Mornings

It's cold here in Tasmania at the moment as it's the middle of winter and walking the kids to school each day is a very frosty experience. I needed something snuggly warm to burrow into and keep my hands free (to hold my kids hands of course).

The little yellow lamb hat.

It'd had been a while since I'd tried colour work, so I thought I'd knit a quick hat to refresh my skills.
This hat is a surprise gift for Laney as it's cold down here at the moment and she needs a hat for walking to school.

I used this yarn in the colours daffodil, silver grey & white and the pattern was this one.

I think my colour work skills need some work, so I'm currently eyeing this hat to brush up on my skills!
