My Crafty Week So Far
Since my first blog was really an introduction to tell everyone a little bit about myself and what I make, I thought I would actually show you what I have been making this week . I hope to settle down into blogging once or twice a week, I don’t want to bore you all and scare you off with my musings, that’s not to say that I won’t be visiting lots of other blogs for inspiration and enjoyment.
When I opened my Etsy shop a few weeks ago one of friends suggested I make baby hats and I discovered a pattern for the cutest cupcake hat, here is my latest “flavour”, mint choc, in 0-3 months
I loved adding the bugle beads on to give the effect of sprinkles, and it was a good reason to order more for my stash.
Next I made a baby bonnet in a lovely “fan and feather” pattern and using a really pretty fuchsia coloured King Cole yarn. Again this is 0-3 months and once again I had to add some beads….
and then my daughter Hannah who is a photographer, suggested that I make a crown as a photography prop, I tried it with pearls first but on my second attempt I used crackle beads to produce a jewelled effect. I used Twilleys Goldfingering yarn to knit the crown and it was a little difficult at first but I’m pleased with the result
and my final piece of finished work is another hat, this time a newborn baby boy helmet, knitted in white double knit and contrasted with a navy pompon and navy buttons
and my work in progress is a 0-3 month baby jacket in baby blue and a lovely twisty pattern, again double knit…
And my final work in progress is quite pathetic…hardly worth showing, can you guess what it is yet?
Well that’ all so far this week, I’ll show you my progress later on in the week, I’m sure I’ll have lots more on the go by then as I just can’t stop buying yarn and beads, but that’s another story…
