gone wrong

This pair is too big for my sister’s tiny stubby hands.

buttons - again

I may have gone over the top on the button front. Never mind, I had a chance to make something over complicated, stripy and fussy with shiny bits on. If I was to crochet another pair I might not have added so many fasteners, or at least made them the same colour. I’m worried that they be too small for the nice lady I have made them for, but I don’t really mind because if she doesn’t like them I’ll gladly keep them for myself ^-^


After swearing off buttons in a previous post I decided to give them another chance. Though I haven’t added so many this time, these look just as cute as the last pair that had buttons and were much easier to make, so I may try making another pair that have a few more.

more handwarmers

This must have been the 6th pair I have made in the past month or so, I really aught to learn to crochet fingers, or move on to creating something else!! This pair fits really well; making these was a rare occasion where I didn’t come across any problems. Usually one comes out bigger than the other or I do the stripes in the wrong order. I initially thought the colours wouldn’t go as well together as they have in this pair, but I’m pleased with the end result.

Gloves for my little-big sister

She looks all cute and snuggled in this pair, I can barely see her tiny little fingers amongst the thick wool ^-^
