Thought I’d have a go at working up a quirky amigurumi for Halloween. Nothing says scary like DK on a 3 mm hook, right? 💀
I don’t know about other crafters but I find I don’t often have to go looking for projects, I’m lucky enough to have friends who show me ones they think I might find interesting or quirky.
These squares have been made in Stylecraft Special DK, the larger 30 cm /12 inch in Spice, the smaller 15 cm / 6 inch in Boysenberry. (It looks pinker in real life)
I’ve done patterns for 2 different ways to do a popcorn stitch and for 2 different sizes. Continue reading “Popcorn Granny Squares”
Another impulse buy from Wool Haven; this time Debbie Bliss Cotton DK Print.
Sometimes a yarn is so nice you buy it without knowing what you want it for. That is how I was when is saw the new yarn cakes stocked at the Wool Haven. It’s so squishy!
This has been worked with Anchor Creativa Fina 100% cotton
Last Saturday was World Wide Knit In Public Day (us crafters do like our acronyms) so I tootled down to Dalgarven Mill in Kilwinning to catch up with some very lovely ladies I haven’t seen in far too long. (It meant I missed the Wool Haven’s first birthday and their WWKIP event – so it would be appreciated if someone could invent either a time machine or cloning device)
This started as a “can you translate the pattern” project although I’m pretty sure the lady who asked would have worked it out the tricky bit by herself in time.
