Yarndale 2016

Hooray for another Yarndale!

Thea, myself and Jane headed into Skipton at the weekend for another dose of yarn goodness.

We found so many beautiful colours and so much inspiration.

From the wonderous crochet your own stuffed animal head...

To some of the fluffy creatures we get our yarn from.

The lovely Yarndale sheep were out on display again.

As well as lots of other hand crafted beauties.

We found my little Mareep who had just made a new friend :-)

And between spending hours hunting through the stalls we took a break to go on the Yarn walk.

We had such a wonderful time and enjoyed it all so much, thanks so much to the organisers for another fantastic yarn filled day.

Rainbow piggy

I needed a quick and fun project to make up for my Mum's Birthday... and as she loves pigs this little guy seemed like a good choice. The pattern is a free one from Lonemer's blog and it is sweet, simple and well written with nice clear photos.

I'm not quite sure why a pig in colours of the rainbow pleases me so much, but he does. I just hope my Mum likes him too!

Bootie catch up

I have a little bit of spare time finally and I'm having fun going through part finished projects and so many little tasks that I've been meaning to get around to. Today I went through my crochet business boxes (Pretty Crochet Things) that I had to leave while completing my recent training. I came across a number of booties part finished and have enjoyed making them up and adding buttons to finish them.
These speckled booties are so soft and pretty - love the Sirdar yarn I used for these.
These dark blue variegated yarn booties would be great for a boy or girl I think and are finished with a dark purple button.

This pair were made with a soft mystery yarn which worked up slightly larger than the DK yarn I would usually use so would probably fit a 6-9 month old.

Gotta catch them all!

Finished up some pokeballs to throw at the kids... love the simple pattern by Linda Potts (Wolfdreamer off the hook)
