Time now to share some of the crochet I've been working on this summer.
Let's start with this one as it was the first of my summer projects. I got the majority of this tea cosy crocheted on the ferry crossing over to my parents'.
Anyone who remembers my first ever proper crochet project, will notice that it is a larger version of that.
It's so kitsch, I just love it!
I'm trying to build a wee selection of hats for the Etsy shop that will one of these days get off the ground!
This is a child's bear beanie hat, although the ears are still waiting to be sewn on. I was half way through this when the thought struck me that if I made the same again only in white, and with black ears and a couple of black eyes, it could be a panda hat!
It's on my 'to-do' list.
I also made another of these cute owl hats.
Then I thought I'd make a girly version (which is waiting for it's beak, tufts and braids.)
And also a plain ear-flap hat, for those who might be looking for something a bit plainer.
A couple of ladies beanies.......
.... which are far too dark in these photos, so here they are themselves...
I also made a beret, in the lovely teal colour for my mum, but I left that with her (obviously) and another ladies hat in red, which I forgot to photograph.
Moving away from the hats (I'm working on a racoon hat on the school run just now), I've just this week started making these really pretty afghan squares, that I'm hoping to make into my first ever afghan blanket.
Am I the only one who is not sad that autumn/winter is approaching? Nights sitting by the fire, crocheting. Snuggled under aforementioned crochet blanket.
At least here in Scotland the autumn/winter weather delivers what you expect. Unlike the summer, which has let us down once again!
Do please remind me of this when we are knee deep in snow though!
