A Little Knit and Crochet

I made this little pumpkin which is knitted on three double pointed needles I am pleased how it turned out. And it looks bright and colourful as Autumn decoration! Here is the lovely pattern  photo image_zpstvnpoqdp.jpeg  photo image_zpsxediqsnm.jpeg  photo image_zpsgbxhjnfy.jpeg  photo image_zpsijgwjcni.jpeg  photo image_zps6mz4geto.jpeg I have made two granny squares so far and these just need a zip and lining to make a purse. The blue is a bright turquoise dont know if the colour shows correctly on cumputer screens. I may make a few more for craft fairs. I must say there are a few new ones in Cornwall now! There is Hellys at Helston right by the boating lake and Heartlands in Pool between the towns of Camborne and Redruth and now a craft fair started in Camborne town at a centre indoors, all fabulous crafts, Thursdays and some Saturday's which is already fully booked and am on the reserve list for that one.  photo image_zpst4viu0pa.jpeg  photo image_zpsqj0irgsz.jpeg  photo image_zpssw9bnxgz.jpeg  photo image_zpspelcdqho.jpeg

Ear Flap Hat and A Craft Fair

I made this hat to add to my collection with this pattern it's knitted with a bulky pure cream new wool and so is quick to knit up. I like how easy it is to add this icord at the end by picking up and knitting the stitches as you go. This should be so warm and cosy to wear.  photo image_zps5wvpnct7.jpeg  photo image_zps3r1vuykq.jpeg  photo image_zpssw3urkb0.jpeg  photo image_zpskdhxrhri.jpeg My fuchsias and pink flowers look good spread out in their pot.  photo image_zpsph3hjabv.jpeg I am at another craft fair at Heartlands this weekend.  photo image_zpsaiv6wynq.jpeg  photo image_zpsowocut6h.jpeg

Here are a few bags I made with this pretty striking Laura Ashley boats material. There is a different boat both back and front so it can be worn either side!  photo image.jpg1_zpsyggtw3bk.jpg It has a zip pull at the top shaped like a lighthouse a finishing touch.  photo image.jpg3_zpsy87te1tv.jpg  photo image.jpg2_zpsdz019gzk.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zpssjwaxnut.jpg And a Pencil Case.  photo image.jpg1_zpsdolf03gp.jpg With a waterproof lining.  photo image.jpg2_zpsbvusd5wa.jpg These two boat items are ready to set sale from my shop. The tote bag the first made is already sold! I think all the items turned out pretty good using this boat material!  photo image.jpg3_zpsmf7sdsnf.jpg  photo image.jpg5_zpsc2ed13ft.jpg With a lining and pockets.  photo image.jpg4_zpsmlhukyt8.jpg

Four Crochet Bags with Granny Squares

There are three crochet bags made this week including the one I made last week. Size 12" two 13" one 14" in length. I tried a firmer tension with the first bag the smallest as I wanted a small size crochet bag, the largest I tried a looser tension the middle sized a mixture, plus there were a mix of yarn labels double knit with varying thickness. You can do a crochet granny square with three double crochet each time going around I wanted four double crochet for thickness to be more substantial.  photo image.jpg2_zpsjmmrzkwf.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zpsy1uvshhc.jpg  photo image.jpg4_zpsplriy3nf.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zpsbhasxnfm.jpg  photo image.jpg5_zpshv7zh2yn.jpg These crochet bags are proving popular and this is the first bag I made of these a while ago that sold.  photo image.jpg1_zpskvqiymnq.jpg

Crochet Granny Squares

I have made a few crochet granny squares this week towards three crochet bags I am making. I have plenty of time to make them all before I go to see my two daughters in London mid September so that's good.  photo image.jpg2_zps77sjvxwo.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zps9awwy3xw.jpg  photo image.jpg3_zpsrdbz4lve.jpg I have changed the lining material for a few bags to make variety. There are lots of fabrics, lovely remnant pieces at a shop in a nearby town selling all things Retro also including painted furniture and clothes and so a good place to get pretty material I found.I bought this green coloured lining there for £1 a bargain. I think the lace, which I've had for a little while will make a nice edging on a pocket or two, too!  photo image.jpg4_zpslc4ycxbz.jpg
