A while ago I made some stitch markers. Large ones and small ones for my temperature scarf and sock knitting.I have managed to lose all the small ones and I have lost one of the large ones and one of the wires was broken, so the other day I sat down to repair the broken… Read More And Now for Something Entirely Different.
This month it was mainly about outings and crochet though the socks I made for my granddaughter did get a look in in the photographs! The main outing was one I made to Dorset to meet up with (again) Wild Daffodil. I also spent a day with my daughter just before her birthday and took… Read More Monthly Montage: August
I made my daughter a set of Celtic Coasters as I wasn’t sure what to make to give her for her birthday and I had a vague memory of promising her some of these coasters in the past. I had intended to make either four or six but when I decided to use all seven… Read More A birthday present!
As I mentioned in the previous post about my attempts to create a teacosy for my new teapot, I decided to try making one from the small balls of leftover yarn I have. Thus the colours of the resulting teapot were largely governed by how much I had of different colours. I had a very… Read More Colourful teacosy!

But then he has tried one on before it was finished so hopefully nothing has changed in the meantime. Here is another view. They are made with two strands held… Read More A Pair of Slippers
As those of you who have been following my blog for a while will realise, I am very fond of Port Meirion ‘Botanic Garden’ china. Now, some time ago my daughter bought me these tea cups. I really like the shape as it makes them suitable as coffee cups as well. The four in the front… Read More Yet another project!
Over the last few weeks I have been working on a dinosaur for my grandson. First of course I had to look for a pattern. I discovered that there are very few books for knitted or crochet dinosaurs; in fact I only found one of each and reviews on Amazon suggested issues. The dinosaurs pictured… Read More A dinosaur for my grandson
