So, it's been a while!
Christmas is hurtling towards us at an alarming rate. I'm still trying to finish the big brown blanket, which seems to have stopped growing. I keep going round and round and round, and I swear it's still the same size.
I'm also working on a Secret Santa. This is causing me quite a headache. I was going to make my recipient a lovely scarf. I'd bought the yarn and everything...except when I was notified of my giftee, it turns out she lives abroad. Somewhere HOT. So, she's not going to need a scarf, a hat or wrist-warmers then. Hmmm. I've decided on a cushion. I'll post a pic of that at a later date.
I'm also trying to crochet for the knitting groups Christmas Fair. I've made a few simple flowery pin cushions so far, and some teeny tiny Christmas stockings for tree decorations, but I think I'm somewhat lacking in inspiration.
There is something I did make and finish all in one day. These lovely wrist-warmers which I made for my 10 year old daughter.
No pattern, I just made it up as I went along, but made notes so I could do the second one the same.
I bought a 1KG mixed bag of buttons from ebay and there were 2 of these lovely, sparkly buttons. Perfect!
Now, back to the blanket....
