It's been a long time since I updated this blog, but I haven't been idle!
I tried to make most of my presents, but it's hard when you give to the same people every year... my son has enough hats to sink a ship... and most of my family have enough scarves and bags to open a shop. So...I started making things for my Folksy shop as well and I'm going to list them soon.
For my daughter I made a beret in angora - but I wrapped it before I thought to take a picture. It was from this pattern..
... and I made it in a pale green angora from Filature du valgaudemar.
It's a beautiful yarn and goes a long way - the beret took one and a half balls.
For my son-in-law I made this hat..
..but I didn't have the proper yarn and it turned out a bit small. So I made this one too...
...and that was possibly a little too big! Anyway, he got them both and I have the feeling that they may only be worn on a cold day in the shed! When I think about it, I've never seen Marcus in a woolly hat...
I made some doll blankets for Molly...
... which she was delighted with!
Today I started on making more items to sell on Folksy or my next stall at a Craft Fair.
As Spring is not far off (I hope) I've started with some bootees..
They fit babies from 3 to 6 months and usually sell well.
And lastly, I must show you the little granny square bags I made...
...I think I'm going to line them and then put them on Folksy.
