Hi Everyone

I am so pleased I can keep going with my crocheting until my eyes get fixed.  With the help of my glasses I can keep crocheting but the card stitching is still a bit difficult.  I do a little bit at a time so as not to strain my eyes.  Hopefully won't be too long before I have the ops and get back to some sort of normality.

I couldn't resist doing this pretty little hat. Thanks to Red Haired Amazona on pinterest I got the pattern for it. She had translated from a Russian Lady to 4 ply, I have managed to do this in double knit. I loved doing it the hat was fairly quick to make and I had great fun making the flowers and leaves to decorate it. I am pleased with the results and now have to decide who will get it. It is a childs size so I expect someone will soon claim it.  Hopefully will fit about a 5 - 7 year old, just need a model to check it out for me haha!!

The next item is the lap blanket I made for my daughter at Christmas. The lettering is done by Puff Stitch.  The word on bottom left corner says sweet.  I had done it in dark purple so the word doesn't show up very well.

Thanks for looking, any comments will be appreciated.

Take care Sue xxx

  2. HuiSue,
    what gorgeous items, and they are so perfectly made too.
    I too can't see to sew, knit or crochet these days.
    I am still amazed it doesn't affect my card making.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
