Crochet catch-up

Leave a comment

Things have been very quiet on this blog for a while as I settle into a new job. But I have been crocheting quietly in the background. Here are some pics of a couple of the projects I’ve completed over the last few months.

Goodie Bags_June 2014_web For my daughter’s birthday I made seven goodie bags for her girlfriends. Each bag was filled with goodies and then they got to keep the bag as a gift as well! Making the tassles was the hardest part!

A friend asked me to make a couple of hot water bottle covers for her, so I designed a pattern for myself, one using variegated yarn and the other I used up some left over wools and made striped of blue, cream and aqua (it looked great but I forgot to take a pic of that one). Here is the other one…

Hottie Bottle Cover April 2014I have also completed a blanket and made a jellyfish (see this post for ones I made previously) to give to my cousin for her birthday. So have kept playing with yarn in the evenings and sometimes at work during lunch.

My next project is a baby blanket that my mum has asked me to make for her to give to a friend. Have chosen the yarn and pattern, now to get started.
