During September I was busy making some goodies for a stall I shared (with this lady) at our recent nursery social evening. Amongst other things I decided to make some crocheted "stuff". Here we have...
"paying it forward" gift from Diane @ HeartShaped not long after I'd started blogging. It's great for keeping lovely and toasty warm without the bulk of a scarf. I liked it so much I made two more, but have neglected to photograph them. The yarn used is 100% wool and was a stash-clearing gift from a friend who sadly can no longer crochet or knit due to painful arthritis (you'll notice she no longer blogs now either!). I gave her one of the cowls as a little thank you present.
here, I was pleased with the results and plan to make a pair for myself and a smaller pair for A (the pattern includes adult and children's sizes). This pair sold, yippee!
this pattern, here modelled along with the mitts by A.
I'm amazed your stall wasn't left completely empty with all those goodies for sale. Thank you so much for the cowl. I have had several admiring comments in the playground already and I have been proud to say that my clever and creative friend made it for me xxxx
Ahh, new obsessions. Bring them on!!
All very pretty, well done. So sad to hear about Country Mouse, I miss her blog. A friend of mine has bad Arthritis too and uses voice recognition software to type on her laptop. It is a vicious disease.
Hey Anne, what great makes love the mittens, they reminded me of the pair I had when I was a wee girl. My great aunt knitted them, they were cherry red and I loved them.None of my friends had mittens, so I felt rather special.......
So glad your stall went well and sorry to hear about Country Mouse, it must be so hard to give up something you love due to illness.
A new crafting obsession, please tell us more.....
mmmmmm looks very interesting! xxx
What lovely things! I'm surprised it didn't all sell, it's so gorgeous. I love the cowls - they are both lovely but I like the one with buttons best. You are very talented. I always find pricing stuff at fairs tricky, people don't want to pay a lot for handmade things, but I don't want to give things away! x
Nice and warm !!
Ah and a new obsession Anne ? I'm curious.
I think I can guess what the new obsession may be ... but I'll wait to see. :)
Lovely cowls and mittens. I made a pair of crochet mittens last spring and am looking forward to wearing them this winter.
Wonderful yarn find on e-bay!
You have been making some lovely cosy things - looking forward to reading more about your latest obsession!
Love how you took that early inspiration and made your own version. Super cute.
