In-between Crochet

I have an idea for a sweater I want to try and make but somehow I can’t get my crochet mojo in gear for it, so in the meantime I am having fun with flowers. Cute flowers, brash flowers, pretty flowers and all to be worn either on the head or around the neck!

I thought I would share a picture of one of the headbands I’ve made over the last few days. It’s made in flax and wool. I have some beautiful cones of spring and summer coloured flax all suited for about a 2 mm hook. I think the rustic yarn gives a nice texture to the flowers, not like the smooth look of mercerised cotton and I have this notion it will be easier to keep in place too.

I love crocheting flowers!

Getting Ready For the Fair

The hook is red hot here! I’m crocheting like a mad woman – morning noon and night – and the hats, the snoods and the fingerless mitts are rolling off the hook for the Christmas Spirit Fair on Sunday. I took a few pictures of some of the hats and fingerless mittens today and though I would share.

I thought I would make some headbands too. I’m of the thick haired variety and often find hats too warm but still hate having cold ears and headbands are just perfect for that set of conditions. I have made some rather girlie ones – who says winter wear has to be dull and dark?

I have also got the pattern for some pretty outdoor snowflakes done, but the pictures did not come out too well, so they will be unleashed later in the week.

And now it’s back to the hook!
