It's a Giveaway

I experimented making these slouchy fingerless mitts yesterday and they remind me of the slouchy sock fashion in the 80's. They made my legs look really short and really didn't suit me and yet I wore them religiously.

I've been wanting to do a give-away for a while, so be in to win these slouchy fingerless mitts, they are crocheted from a viscose blend yarn. Kind of light and yet still warm.

Leave a comment sharing your favourite fashion faux pas before 11th August and be in to win.

Poncho and Gloves

This is what I've been up to lately. 
Lots of lovely yarn from Skeinz

I even managed to kind of follow a pattern :-)
 Gloves made for friends, I've even attempted a kids pair, so we'll see how they fit... 
Laid out like this they look like hearts (awww)

Now I'm in a bit of a crochet stasis, waiting for the next wave of inspiration

A Green Scene

A green scene for a lovely weekend :-)

Fab new boots bought on a trip to Tauranga, 
Beautiful bag bought in Italy as a present from my parents, (a pretty close match)
Spike my dwarf cabbage tree, liking his new home

 A great dew this morning. I hadn't washed my face in dew for a while, it felt great!

New poncho with gorgeous greens is coming along well

High Tea with Crochet

A couple of weekends ago we got poshed up and went to the Langham Hotel in Auckland for High Tea.
It was yum!

At the table next to us one young lady was showing the other how to crochet.  It was all I could do to not dump my friends and go and sit with them! I held back until the end and then we had a quick chat about the fab stuff you could make :-)

This is my favourite thing I've made this week: 

I was going to tell you about the new thing I'm making however I have a tendency not to finish everything I start and I'm not really sure if it'll work at this stage so I won't tell too much.
