Oh Christmas Tree…

So.. I wanted a little tree for my desk at work. After a bit of searching, I found the pattern for Penny the Pine Tree.

I added some ‘tinsel’ – sparkly yarn (crochet chain) and some ‘baubles’ – needle deleted balls (if you’ve been reading – that’s what they were for!)

I’m quite happy with how it turned out, I’m sure it’ll make my desk look Christmassy!

Accidental Masha and the Bear…

So I wanted to make a Pixie hat for little, I used the free crochet pattern here, and needless to say, mine didn’t end up quite like the picture. But I still liked it and made her wear it. Then she played with her new goldilocks/bear toy (a bit horrifying really, goldilocks is inside the bear!) and the resemblance the Masha and the Bear was realised!

Crochet roundup – Summer

Holidays destroyed any crochet time (too many kids for hobbies!)

But I did turn my smallest into a cabbage patch kid the other day:


The pattern is here – I’m a little scared how much the camera flash makes her look like a doll!

And I made a baby twinkle toes unicorn using thread. He/she is coming to work with me when I go back!
