Today I found out this cot sized afghan that I made a while ago. I might stick it on Esty because it's too small for my kids now.

I have been rippling today. I have now joined in the great ripplealong.

This is my first ripple afghan at Day Two and a bit.

I recently got a great pattern for crocheted hats which I have been playing with. Normally I don't really use a pattern I just shape as I go and make the kind of close fitting caps the Americans call 'beanies'. However I've seen a few people wearing these style hats on the bus and I couldn't work out how they were made so I've been on the lookout for a pattern.

The first one is a mini-me hat in variegated double knitting yarn for my daughter.

The second one is for me and it's made with one strand of the same variegated DK and one strand of plain DK in a sort of dark red colour.

This was my current project. It's an arran crochet jumper in some beautiful marbled, acrylic yarn I got from Texere Yarn.

The texture doesn't show up very well but it looks good in real life. Unfortunately I've had to lay it to one side to work on some other stuff.
I am relaunching this to document my adventures in crochet, beading and whatever other crafty bits take my fancy.

Over the coming weeks I will add some photos and join in with some group crafty things.

Well that's the plan anyway. I may just end up bitching about the cost of yarn.
