Ravelry:: Fave Free Crochet Patterns

I love raverly. It’s a wealth of information and projects. Sometimes overwhelming and I can get lost in all its yarny goodness but mostly its a fountain of inspiration. Here is just a few of this weeks favourite patterns.

Tiny Crochet Cars.

These are sooo cute! I am thinking of making some for my brothers for Christmas.

Mixed Stitch Stripey Blanket.

I am at present in the midst of making my own blanket. Sometimes it gets a little repetitive hooking the same stitch over and over. I love the variety in this blanket, the different stitches and colours. It seems fun to make! I also like that it isn’t oppressively bright, a little lighter and more pastel.

Fox Brooch

One word… Adorable. What a great Christmas gift. Or a gift for any day! Must make, it’s on my to-do list.

Thanks for reading

Unusual:: You can never have too many bookmarks… Especially ones that are flattened ladies . I think that would be a good way to go… Squashed by books. There are worse ways to kick the bucket.

 Jewellery:: These simple and unusual earrings would be perfect on a day to day basis. 

Crochet Pumpkin and Mushroom

Bringing a little autumn into my bedroom. Not the cold though, the cold can stay outside, well and truly.

I had a day off today (wahoo!) so I decided to have a relatively relaxing, stress free, tea heavy, movement limited day. It was happily infused with masses of crochet and YouTube documentaries periodically interspersed with episodes of Gilmore Girls. I couldn’t resist, a guilt free telegasmic  indulgence if I’m honest.

Look! My little crochet mushroom and pumpkin!

They sit happily on my bookshelf which stands next to my bed.

They sit just above my granny square bunting and pompom bunting. I think they brighten my shelves up

Despite the wet, cold  and windy day outside, which I have watched from this mornings light dull grey  progressively intensify into a deep, dark, musty greyish black with an illuminated light turquoise layer bleeding upwards into the grey from the below the houses and finally settling into blackness – no stars visible, only the pop of street lamps scattered around.

Now after finishing my small attempt at crochet amigurumi pumpkins and mushrooms I am back to working on my Turkish Delight Rug. It’s growing steadily though I do have one issue. I have no idea where to put it. I’m sure I’ll find a place once it’s finished.
