Just finished my three Christmas baubles, made with my toft alpaca (lurve that place!)
First I knitted them and stuffed them with fleece. Then I washed them at 50 with non bio detergent. Then I felted the designs on using the special barbed needle – you have to be very careful for that bit!
They’ll go on the tree tomorrow when we put it up!
Just finished my cable headband from the Toft book. Really love it. Excuse the awful photos! I’m full of cold and looking rough!!
Just finished a cable and lace scarf to go with my cable wrist warmers. I used Aran from toft alpaca, my fave shop. Really proud of myself. Was complicated!
I’m so pleased with my latest crochet amigurumi! It’s my long-suffering husband! I made him make the glasses for me and then wear the right shirt and trousers for the photographs… He does it all with a forced smile. Lol
Here it is!
This wet, cold, grim weather, and not feeling all that great means that I’ve stayed in all weekend crafting. I made another felted penguin this morning.., then I went back to bed for a nap. Then I wound some of the hanks of wool that I’ll be using to knit a wrap into balls. And then this evening I started making a new amigurumi from the book Amigurume, which I had on pre-order from amazon for MONTHS… I was so excited when it finally arrived this week and so far I’m not disappointed.
Anyway, it’s 9pm… Bedtime for me now, hoping a good sleep will have me waking up feeling better for work tomorrow.
I knitted a hat this evening! Started at about 4 and have just finished, Pom pom and all!
