Just finished the cricketer my Dad asked me to make for him months ago. This project has taken me ages. It was supposed to be for his birthday but I’ve missed that by two weeks! Whoops.
But here he is, finally. Many thanks owed to my fiancé for making the pads and bat. The main crochet issue was that I had no pattern so had to patch together some other patterns and then totally freestyle. Quite pleased with the final result but there are some things I could improve on….
Just in time for Easter, I have finished my @ToftAlpacaShop rabbit.
Beautiful yarn to work with.
I’ve finished my bag! Woo-hoo!
My new Kindle case from http://www.klevercase.co.uk just arrived and I love it!
I went with the “To Kill a Mockingbird” cover, although I also loved the “Pride and Prejudice” one. It was a real struggle to get the kindle in it, as it’s a snug fit but thats good as it means it won’t fall out! I’m going to have to be careful with it though, as its pretty delicate as cases go, but so pretty! And it makes me feel like I have an actual book and can look a librarian in the eye!
Overall, really pleased with it. Look at their website, they have cases for other devices too!
The bag is getting there! I’ve only got the handles to attach now, but not sure how. Then I’m going to use some materials scraps and make a lining of some sort and maybe use some leftover Zpagetti to make a
tassle tassel (?) or flower or something.
Should be done by the weekend.
I decided that I didn’t like the cards in the shops, so I made my own. It didn’t take long at all. The heart pattern was in the first issue of Simply Crochet magazine.
I broke the bit of my memory stick that you use to attach it to a lanyard. It was driving me crazy that I kept leaving it in my pencil case, a random computer at work, losing it in my handbag… So I crocheted a little sock for it, to attach it to my lanyard. Hopefully I’ll not lose it now, although knowing my luck with USBs….
