February's finished Projects

 Good Day to all my yarny Friends

What a busy February and March I have had here at home.

We decided to get the house decorated as well as buying new furniture, we have been so busy that I forgot to post about the finished projects I made in February so here we are 10 days later sharing what I created last month.

These are my shorty socks which I made a tutorial for using fingerweight superwash merino and nylon.

These socks are made using Hypnotic yarn following the pattern The Shallow by The Crazy Sock Lady

Another hat for the homeless using Stylecraft Aran in Bluebell, my own design.

Star Flower Motif Doily which I made a tutorial for using #4 Yarn Bee 101 Acetate yarn.

Last but not least is this beautiful shawl designed my Ursula from @OMGrannySquare called Beautiful Friends which you can find on Ravelry.

I used #Bramblewood Yarn with multicolour stelina!

That is all for this month!
Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

January 2023 Finished Projects

Hello my Friends,

Sharing with you today the knitted and crocheted projects I have finished for the month of January.

I will be posting at the end of each month all my finished projects for each month!

This month I have finished 2 wearables, 2 hats and of course a pair of socks for this year's #sockittome2023 challenge.

First up we have the Sparkling Fountain Sweater using Twin Set and Purl's pattern with yarn from Botanical Yarns.

The second wearable is this cute tank top/vest which is designed by Wannipa Yunka, Knitcro Addicte and here is the link for the pattern from Ravelry
I have 3 strands of DK yarn in brown, beige and a variegated yarn.


The next is my January socks for the #sockittome2023 Challenge, these are knitted using King Cole Footsie in the colourway kiwi, the pattern is a vanilla sock by The Crazy Sock Lady

This hat is made using Expression Fiber Arts Beginner hat kit in lilac DK
It is crocheted using the basic double crochet and front post, back post to create the rib effect 

This hat is my first hat for the homeless for this year! I have used Stylecraft Aran to create this simple hat.  Every year I make hats and donate them to the homeless shelter here in my home town.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Have a creative, blessed day.
