My Creative Space is preparing for winter…

…with these little slippers. I crocheted them for Maya but after lightly felting them, her feet barely fit into them. So I have given them to my friend’s little 3 month old daughter whose feet are waaay too small yet.

Speaking of the gorgeous little girl, I forgot to show you what I made for her when she was born.
This is my first crocheted blanket, made before I worked out that you can actually join the motifs as you crochet them.
So many hours were spent (unnecessarily) stitching all these hexagons together.
Hopefully it is keeping her nice and cosy with the cooler weather we have been having this season.

And hopefully she is having fun playing “where is the white sheep” with this softie I made from an opped cotton and silk knitted jumper.

Happy Holiday Hooking

It’s taken Maya quite some time to warm up to this hat. But thankfully all that crocheting, unraveling, crocheting, unraveling ... etc hasn’t gone to waste and she finally approves of her new sun hat. Once again there was no pattern, it was very experimental. I used a shell pattern in rounds and it was a bit of a challenge working out where to increase and how to increase, hence the unraveling. I think it has worked out okay except the brim is a bit floppier than I had hope for. But in an attempt to broaden it and reduce the floppiness, I double crocheted over a plastic cord around the edge.
It’s still a bit floppy but at least it keeps the sun off and it does look quite cute with her colour coordinated drink bottle!

The planet is round…

…and I haven’t fallen off the face of it.

The busy but fun summer has distracted me from blogging and I’ve loved the break. Of course there’s been no break from the creating though.

I crocheted a couple of cushion covers dottie angel style. And now I’m trying to find the motivation to do the boring bits – sewing up the cushions.
Head over to Kootoyoo for more creative spaces.
