Finished crochet cowl, knitted chicks for charity and new yarn in my stash.

Hi everyone, Hope you are all well?

We are having lovely mild weather on and off here in my part of the UK, lot's of rain mixed with sunshine.

I have been busy crocheting a lovely warm cowl for my friend at work,


the pattern was from Inside Crochet magazine Dunes Cowl. I did not use the recommended yarn as on the pattern my friend already purchased the yarn.


I have not crossed stitched much of my owl pattern lately since I seem to have knitting projects piling up so there is not much progress to show you at the moment. I intend to save a few hours to stitch at some point.



At my local knitting group we are in the middle of knitting or crocheting small chicks, they are just the right size to fit a cream egg inside.




I have knitted about 14 so far and other members have made similar amounts, all these will be going off to St Lukes Cheshire Hospice where they sell them at there charity stalls to raise funds.

Within our group we take some of our sub money to put towards funds every week and so far we have raised £700 pounds. It is so much fun when you have others to share with what you are making.



Also I have some lovely yummy new yarn to show for new projects.



This jester DK yarn will be for  a cushion for my Grand daughter.



One 100g skein of hand dyed yarn 4ply weight this will be for a pair of socks.
You can find more of similar yarn at Betsy Makes etsy shop


So I think I will be pretty busy for the coming weeks that is something to look forward too, I think I had better knit the cushion first though.

Till next time 
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and find a little time to make something.


bye for now

Knitting updates, cross stitch updates and general chit chat.

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well and keeping snug and warm, it is a cold and grey day here in the UK we have had a few snow flurries but it has not progressed to much(thankfully) I feel my Grand daughter would love for it to snow a little heavier.

I have made some progress on sock knitting, a little slow granted but i did undo a little and then started again but never the less I am enjoying the process.







I have nearly finished a pair of knitted house slippers,






this all started through watching a Pod Cast (i am addicted to these) by Tina at Simply In Stitches on You Tube she was holding a KAL for these slippers. I know the picture dose not do them justice but I assure you they look lovely on with a nice snug fit.

The pattern is free from Temple Of Knit
the yarn I used was Pure Shetland Wool from Blacker Yarns it knits as DK



I have a cross stitch update for the Owl Bell Pull






not much I know as I had a few other projects to do one being a crochet cowl for a friend at work so I had to squeeze it in, I will show you in the next post when it's finished. But as you can see I think the colours for the flowers are going to look lovely when they are all stitched and then I will start on the owl.


I am sure I will have more to show you next time, so till then enjoy the rest of your weekend.


Happy stitching or knitting/crochet
