Berries and Key Lime with Savannah and Scottie...

Hi Everyone,

Even though I haven't been blogging I have been very busy with one thing and another, life took over in a big way!! Haven't done as much crafting as I would have liked, I seemed to have lost my mojo for a little while.

The Make, do and Knit fair in Liverpool, proved to be the catalyst in my recreativity, had a fabulous weekend with the knitonthenet team. Ended up thoroughly knackered, but absolutely fired up with ideas.

Here are some of my recently completed projects - read on ..

This bag is made from a kit by Ingrid Wagner, who was at the fair. I called it Scottie Bag as the orange colours have a slight plaid in them.
The kit includes 2 balls of 'yarn' and a huge crochet hook complete with pattern. I altered the pattern slightly and made different handles, it is fabulous, very hardwearing, and is soooo quick to make, a real instant gratification job. Cheers Ingrid I will do more of these!!

This is Berries Shawl my own design in Sirdar Escape. Just a simple filet stitch rectangle with a loopy fringe, its so warm and cosy, and can be draped in different ways to suit my ever changing moods - lol.

Meet Savannah the lovely little number from 'The Knitter'. Made in Patons, Trentino dk. Of course I had to alter this pattern as well, didn't fancy picking up the stitches for the lacy edging, so I crocheted them instead. This made a surprisingly lightweight but warm shrug.

This next one is called Key Lime and is a WIP. Made from Stylecraft, Sirocco - a linen and cotton blend. The photos do not represent the colour very well it is a definite lime, hence the name. It is quite heavy but I am looking forward to finishing it and of course wearing it!

Bye for now, love Cathy x
