Knitted hat and crochet scarf as gifts and stitching update.

Hello everyone,

How are we all hope you are well, thank you for your comments and visits to my blog.

Are any of you starting to make gifts for Christmas? or perhaps you are preparing for Halloween.
I have started a fun hat for one little person I saw these fun novelty hat kits over at
PurpleLinda Crafts




It also comes with the pattern and you can choose  crochet or knitted.



I finished this crochet shawl using SIRDAR snuggley DK yarn and a cream contrast colour in DK.



worked on a 4 mm hook stitch pattern is in trebles. Nice and easy.




The pattern is from Shawls an Wraps by Laura Strutt


In the book it shows the shawl crocheted in an emerald green yarn but as you can see I wanted a different colour, this book has a lovely collection of designs and I was lucky enough to buy this with some gift vouchers I was given.



I have some cross stitch updates the ship ahoy design I started in previous post is still on going I have not done as much has i would have liked,




my eyes have been a little tired. Even though I use my magnifier when stitching on even weave it can be hard to see for me sometimes  but it will soon be finished as it's not a large picture.


I am also stitching this Autumn design using those lovely rust and gold colours,


which is being stitched on 14 count rustic aida and not a strain on my eyes. Maybe 14, 16, and 18 count fabric would be easier to use for me there is no point in straining your eyes I enjoy my stitching so much it is so relaxing.
Anyway the above pattern can be found at Tiny Modernist

Well that is all for now and I hope you have a lovely weekend.



bye for now
