Rag Rug and Coasters

I was getting ready to do a craft fair on Saturday at Hellys and did not crochet or knit a finished item. I did crochet a few squares last week that I think I might make into a blanket, perhaps maybe. I sold a rag rug which I knitted a while ago, the lady who bought it loved it and said quite a lot of work must have gone into it, and it did as the coloured fabrics had to be cut into strips and knotted together then knitted on big needles. Knitting with cotton material was harder to do as it is less easy to manage to knit with than yarns. I was pleased I carried on with it as it grew bigger and it became a colourful rag rug. I have a photo of it as a banner on my blog, my Etsy and Folksy Shops, my Weebly website and on business cards. I will keep it on there now it is sold, as it looks good. I also sold at the craft fair a set of four cotton crochet coasters too so, a good day at the craft fair.  photo image.jpg2_zps0vluzmi7.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zps0sgpczfz.jpg

Three colour funky hat.

I wanted to make a hat next after making an infinity scarf and liked this pattern I saw on All Free Crochet. It is a beret type hat that was adapted to this design a peaked cap which I like. I used the acrylic yarns I had with me changing the colour as I went along. It is made using single crochet throughout. I will keep it for myself.  photo 51982fada2bf2e6e66dab465c4c71dec_zps90cbec7c.jpg  photo image.jpg2_zps0zodl35t.jpg  photo image.jpg1_zpsrrkcxlkp.jpg

Crochet Infinity Scarf

I liked the stitches in this pattern and as I needed another scarf and it was quick to make, with a single crochet, half double,double crochet then miss two, in the round. I made this. Here I am in my daughters lovely Victorian house sitting down with a bag of wool and this is the scarf I made. We love it here and are staying another week. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos I have got two legs btw I like to sit with one leg tucked under me I find it comfortable.  photo e7a1969a9ba8aace4593da6d7b97cb46_zps3cd0447a.jpg  photo 557f85a89636ceac22ff4212aee3e97d_zpsa655be5e.jpg
