Thank You Followers


This week I reached a 1000 followers on Bloglovin.  In honour of that I would like to do a giveaway for this scarf above.  I absolutely love these colours together. I will probably add a few crochet surprised with this.   If you would like to win this scarf.  Please leave me a comment below and I will draw a winner next weekend, January 31.
Thank you all again for being interested in my crochet!


I'm almost done the back of my cushion cover. I can't wait to put it together.



This week I managed to whip up this crochet headband.  I used Cre8tion Crochet's pattern, Sleek and Skinny Ear Warmer/Headband.  The only problem is after done, it doesn't quite fit my head.  LOL
I measured the starting chain to my head but the finished product, not so much.  But, I did see a tutorial to crochet around an elastic. So I may try that to add to the back. 

I added the elastic. Much better fit. 



Well I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Don't forget to leave a comment if you wish to enter winning my crocheted scarf!

Cushion Cover


The only thing I've been working on this week is this cushion cover.  Front is done and I started the back doing the Cozy Stripe from Attic24.


I'm hoping to have more time soon to work on other projects on the go.  But we always say that and then life happens.  

Happy weekend all!!

Progress Made



Happy weekend all!!  I haven't posted in a bit.  Have a bit of a cold at the moment.
I guess that's the joys of winter.  But I have made some progress on various projects.  I always wanted to make some of these starburst granny squares and with some recently acquired pastel colours I thought I'd try it out.  This is now blocking to lay flat.  I think I will add more to the border. Then I will start the backing of this cushion cover with a striped crochet in these colours.


I finished knitting this cowl scarf. It covers the shoulders nicely to keep warm. Through the holidays I had picked up this fuzzy type yarn. I thought it would be perfect to finish off the top and bottom of this. I may have to block the bottom of this however as it's tending to curl up.



And for my chunky cable scarf, it is finished.  Super warm.  I used up the whole ball of yarn I got. The only thing I'm not keen on it that the mixed colouring doesn't show the cable design. 
Chalk that up to lesson learned. So I took a picture a bit closer up to show the cable.


I finally got the first book in this series as I had the second one.  Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs.  My aunt has started reading it and tells me it is very good. There's something cozy about reading novels that include the hobby you love. 


Well have a lovely weekend all. Keep warm.

Happy Crafty New Year


This new year has snuck up so quick I haven't given it much thought for reflection or resolutions.
Is it just me or does time seem to fly by more quickly the older we get?

I made a little video of my 2014 crafting.
