…and isn’t he an adorable little chap dear reader! He’s yet another of my crocheted creature creations, but this time it’s a boy! This wee fellow is sporting a knitted jumper rather than a dress and I’m rather pleased with him. Of course like most of my crocheted creatures he was very taken with the camera…

I also hooked up another bunny this week for someone to give their friend’s new baby boy: a bunny in blue for a baby boy…

…and yes, he was rather taken with the camera too…

Still on the crochet theme, I have been busy hooking up some bits and bobs for my next craft sale: some snuggly mug hugs…

…goodness, is it just me or are you overcome with the need for a cuppa right now too, dear reader? Anyway, back to blogging, I also made some cute candle cosies…

…aah, loving the thought of dark evenings snuggled up with a hot cuppa and a twinkling tealight all a-glow! Bliss! I also made a few bookmarks too; personally I can never have enough of them…

All my tealight cosies, mug hugs and bookmarks are made from 100% cotton yarn, some of it is even this rather yummy recycled t-shirt yarn which I love! Right now I am hooking up another Matilda Mouse toy for a friend’s little girl, along with three more unicorns for a friend’s darling little triplets, which all have to be different colours! So I had better get going now dear reader, for I must go forth and create unicorns…craft on…

Meet Monica Monkey!

IMG_20140929_191438

Isn’t she simply adorable dear reader? I bet you didn’t realise just how cute a monkey in a dress could be. Of course Monica is extremely aware of how cute she is and just loves having her photo taken…

So is often to be found hanging around in front of a camera…

…ready for a chic shot; she’s such a cheeky little diva! She’s my latest crocheted creature creation and I’ve already made a start on designing a doggie version. Doggie won’t be wearing a dress however, for I am going to create a ‘boyish’ ensemble for him, such fun!

As you know dear reader chum, I completed my ‘shape’ weaving last time and you’ll be pleased to know that I have now found a place for it in my humble abode…

Looks lovely nestled amongst my twinkly-twiggy lights does it not? I am also rather chuffed with how another monochrome creation of mine is coming along – the house pillow I might have waffled on about in a previous bloggings. Well, exciting news dear reader, for I have managed to incorporate a new ‘triangulationy’ pattern into my knitting for the roof section…

Looks lush doesn’t it? So pleased with my triangliness and still keeping with the triangly theme, here’s a trianglings doodlings…

I can’t decide whether to add colour or not, what do you reckon dear reader? Still sort of with the triangle thing, here’s a progress pic of the lacy diamond pattern knitting on my latest neck cosie, in a lovely beachy-seasidey kind of coloured yarn…
