FINALLY done with this wrap scarf! It's a retirement gift for a colleague.
Was rather done with all the baby pink, but really happy with the result!
That looks lovely, if complicated. What a pretty pattern.
It was really dead easy! One of the easiest things I ever crochetted!
Used this website as a guide. I normally make stuffed animals and you are always counting and things. Didn't have to think with this one. Nice and relaxing when on holiday!
Well it looks fancy, well done and thanks for the link
Oooh love that seagull! Look at him all relaxed!!! And what a lovely wrap scarf present. You've been very busy!
Gosh productive in the Netherlands, love the seagull AND the wrap. Well done
This should really read what will you be making - I won this little lot - from thread, felting kits, wool, patterns, craft stuffing, peg loom and thrums etc etc etc and a rather nice kit for an xmas wreath!
That is a nice looking sea gull Cat tails - much more friendly than the ones I saw on holiday last week
Very pretty scarf you have made too
Blackrocksrock what did you have to do to win all of those goodies ?
Hope to see some photos of the things you make with that bundle.
I bought over£10 worth of goods in their sale. Shop in the village called 3 bags wool. The have a fb page. Then I got a free raffle ticket. Daughter will get the wool.
I saw the crochet company at the show the other day, lots of creatures, Dave the seagull and friends and all sorts. Fabulous
The monster book is good you can mix and match body parts.
Congratulations on the win.
I haven't done cake decorating for years but my daughters best friend is getting married tomorrow and I made this for her. She loves pengins and purple so this is what I made.
and she wanted Betty Crocker cakes with shades of purple flowers
A very busy baking day yesterday and all came together at almost midnight last night.
Someone is putting it all together tomorrow
Looks absolutely amazing!!!
Well done those penguins are so cute, I admire your skill and imagination
Well done from me too as the penguins are fab. Cakes look mighty tasty too.
Will see what it looks like later as we are going to the reception and it will be set up on the cake stand
I based the penguins on a picture she gave me and adapted them to what I could do.
If you'd have seen the first attempts I did you would have laughed - hubby said they looked like weebles
Mind you I had been given sugarpaste to make them with instead of modelling paste so a quick visit to the cake decorating shop soon helped me sort them out.
Love the penguins - and the cake looks great. I think the bride will be delighted.
ELephant wall hanging nearly finished.
Lovely cake! I hope it stayed upright (unlike my sisters during the hotest day of the year of 30+! when it started to slide!)
I have recently gone into the dark world of two sticks (knitting)! Tis a mind boggler, but prob as much as crochet was when I first started that.
Anyhoo, first foray is socks! Theres a great fb group and website Winwickmum who has loads of hints and tips on making them. So far, I have learnt the long tail cast on method which is fab, remembered how to knit and had to google purl, and am a quarter of my way through sock number one. The frightening point of 'turning the heel' is ever looming along with the torturous sounding 'Kitchiner stitch'
Photo below, and apologies I can't resize as its Photobucket and doesn't seem to like my ipad
Those socks look amazing, I love the yarn!
My New Year's Resolution was to learn how to knit socks but I'm so scared of those pointy sticks! There seems to be nowhere to hide with knitting... the lack of holes alarms me
Stitches seem to slide off dpns so easily, that in fact, after an Entire side came off, I switched to ones with a cable between them Its a bit of a faff sliding one side off and then one side on to knit in a circular way, but its getting there. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Rialto sock yarn - a mix of merino wool and acrylic. It doesn't feel itchy on my face, so I am hoping I can wear them as wool makes me itch. I bought it from a yarn shop in Combe Martin when we were on holiday a few weeks ago as it was having a closing down sale. I wish I could have bought more, but I couldnt think what to buy so just got the one ball
Have a look at her website and see what you think. Its so far such an easy pattern, its the needle and stitches grappling thats taxing.
You can't wear them they're far too good! That yarn is beautiful, I always like looking at the sock yarn.
Blackrocksrock your wallhanging is great. Is the fabric silk, it looks really exotic. Wonderful!
Loving the elephant wall hanging and the sock
Did think the sock looks like it could have been hooked up to some kind of life support wires - guess that was some kind of thing to make the sock round
Very clever both of you
Haha it does a bit! The needles are joined by a thin plastic cord and you have half the stitches on each needle so as you knit each side, it actually becomes a tube! Tis magic I tells ya!
