Lazy day off
dreich - it was so cold, wet and generally miserable. So, the wood burner went on at 11am (!) and I settled down with some knitting and crochet. I seem to have a thing for making corsages/brooches at the moment, and today I finished making the ones above. The pattern came from Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench and the yarn was small amounts of Rowan hand knit cotton which I had leftover from a project I did last year. I gave them a little spray with some Dylon spray starch when I had finished them and I think this makes them look better. I'm really pleased with how they turned out and I'm sure I'll be making a few more in different colours!
A good friend of mine is going to a themed hen party in a few weeks time and has asked me to make her a little something as part of her outfit. It involves red and white yarn and a red Pom Pom and I made a start on it today. I will show it here when it's finished ;)
