Some pictures to share.
Nine months since I last posted on here. Will anyone still read this??
So much has happened but I won't go into that. One thing I'm happy to be able to say though is that my mum is doing well at the moment. :)
She had stents and has been building up her strength and although she has to take things easier, she's back on her feet again.
I've been a bit on and off with doing anything much and some things I made, such as hats and a few small thread doilies, I never took pictures of, but I do have some things to share with you to catch us up to now.
These aren't in order as I can't even remember what I made when, but in picture order ...
First up is a 'scoodie' I crocheted. A lovely thick yarn which I think I used doubled if I remember rightly, but at anyrate, a very warm hood and scarf is the result.
The second picture is a glittery crochet padded purse type cosy for a phone.
I didn't work to any pattern, I just made it up out of my head, lol.
The inside is double crochet which I think I did a FP and BP pattern to make it thick and give the padded effect.
The outside is all HDC. I single crocheted the two together leaving enough to make the flap over for the purse and did a loop to fasten over the button.
On the inside as you open it, I put a little cross stitch picture on black evenweave, just to give a bit of unexpected interest.
Then I crocheted a heart and added a button. I sized it by my own phone, but I gave it to a friend as a present.
Picture three is a knitted ice blue fluffy scarf made by using three balls of eyelash yarn.
It came out really cosy and was another present for a friend.
The fourth picture is of two phone cosies I just made up. Again I just sized them to my own phone and made them up as I went along.
Picture five is my attempt at entrelac. It's tunisian crochet in the round using two balls of yarn and it was only a practice piece. I unravelled it once I got the hang of things.
I just wanted to try tunisian crochet and then I decided to try entrelac as well.
I just used a normal crochet hook.
Picture six is of a small piece of hardanger that I had done and then I crocheted a back and the sides and added a small hanging loop, to make a nice decorative tile.
The seventh picture is a full sized crochet ripple blanket I made. Very cosy when you feel unwell and just want something to snuggle into.
Picture eight is two small crochet bags. I was pleased with them but wish I was clever enough to line them. I think they would be more sturdy if they were lined.
I had fun making them though.
The last picture is a purple and black bag. The handles look a bit strange because of the angle of the picture but they are the same size.
Again, I wish I knew enough to line it and make it more sturdy.
So this sort of catches me up with as much as I can show you. At the moment I am knitting, so rather than add it to this post, I'll give my latest project a post of it's own.
Hope you are all keeping well. I'm too far behind to catch up with you all but hopefully I can go on from here.
