I am joining in the weekly get together lovemademyhome.blogspot.co.uk/ with Amy for the Five on Friday meme. I have started to sort out my craft room, as I want some little projects ready to have to hand. I had anticipated a few unfinished projects that languish in various hotspots but to my surprise there was only one crochet project. However there were a few sewing projects that need my attention. I spend a lovely couple of hours browsing pattern books for some portable projects for the coming weeks. Here is what I came up with.
Finish the infinity scarf that I started some weeks/months ago.
The yarn used is a beautiful alpaca wool which is a dream to crochet with so I don't recall why this didn't get finished. I think Christmas gifts and preparations just got in the way.
We had some exciting news over the festive period that my nephew and his partner are expecting their first baby. To that end I intend to crochet a baby blanket. The pattern I have chosen is one that I have made several times before and is an old favourite. I haven't got the yarn needed in my stash but intend to buy either white or cream.
In fact I am having a trip out to Boston today with a view of picking some yarn and craft supplies up when I am out.
I have some oddments of red/burgundy yarn left over from previous projects that I have just wound into some beautiful squishy yarn cakes. I love using that old winder and piling up the little cakes. I intend to use the yarn to crochet up some hearts ready for Valentines day. I like the idea of some bunting for the mantel and maybe some added to a wreath.
They are a quick and easy make and a very portable project with the added bonus of using some oddments from stash.
With our hopefully impending move, facecloths and scrubbies are a must for our new home. I have several colours of cotton yarn all ready and have found a great pattern.
Finally I have chosen a pattern for a stocking, which seems a little silly in January but I will have six to make and will be perfect to use oddments up from my stash.
Again, another portable project that can easily be transported and be picked up and put down.
I have all the yarn, patterns and hooks all ready to go. Now about the rest of the craft room, well that is another story...
See you soon.
