200 Crochet flowers, embellishments & trims
I’m always needing something to finish a little cardigan, or something I’ve sewn. Crochet embellishments just work great for me, and I seem to always be making flowers for something, so I’ve treated myself to this book, I’ve not made anything yet though. I think it looks good, and the instructions seem easy to follow, maybe I’ll write a review soon.
20 to make Crochet Granny Squares
I always find granny squares versatile too. Sandy has blankets made from them, as did my children. I’ve used them in cardigans, bags, everything. I got this from Deramores, again I’m very pleased with it and it seems easy to follow. It’s also small, so I can take it out with me.
Red heart 100% acrylic black 4ply. The left over Wendy Festival from Andi’s winter set. And a set of buttons I liked.
All of the above is from Deramores. I’m making a little cardigan from the black acrylic, it’s cheap, and I don’t know how it will wear so if the jacket comes out very nice I’ll make another one in cotton. It’s for Sandy, in 2-3 years, but the pattern includes 3-4 as well.
The Wendy made Andi a very nice hat and scarf, but I’ve not yet got the decent pictures of it.
And the buttons? I don’t know yet, I just liked them.
Eight balls of Sirdar Montana. I’m not sure what this is for yet, it was in the sale.
Thee balls of Patons 100% cotton. Two balls of red Bonus DK acrylic, and one ball of green.
This yarn is from Hobycraft, the black 100% cotton. I got red and green is acrylic too, there was a 3 for 2 offer on. I want to do a strawberry jumper. I had to drive ten miles to the nearest hobby craft though, which is slightly annoying, on the plus side, parking was free.
C&H wool haul.
This photo is a mess. I raided the sales in my local (expensive) wool shop. I did very well.
I got a pack of crochet hooks, just because they’re always good to have around and I’m missing a lot of smaller sizes.
4 balls of Wendy Supreme DK cotton, two orange and two green.
Sirdar snuggly 4ply in sage.
An odd patterned wool that’s lost the band.
And an odd chunky, same story.
Regia 4ply sock wool, two balls.
An eyelash yarn by Sirdar, not sure what for, but loving the colour. I only use those yarns for trims anyway.
4 balls of a nice cotton yarn that I can’t remember the name of at the moment.
Next I’ll be knitting this all up. Well, hopefully. I got four patterns too, but I’ll show those when knitted up.
Andi keeps nagging me to get a ravelry, I don’t know what the big deal is.
