Lilac Love

I love love love Lilacs and I am quite fond of potholders.
A lilac inspired potholder - yes a great idea!!

I had to scrounge around the bottom of the yarn baskets to gather enough pinky purply variety, add a touch of cream and begin. Bound it all together with a bright leafy green and viola  - a Lilac inspired potholder is born.

Potholder pattern available HERE

Happy Hippy

This is my (biggest) little girl - just recently turned four.
I made this headband for her late last night simply cause I thought she would like it.........and she does.

Was super easy with the simplest of simple flowers, might make another for my other (littlest) little girl with a wee bit more thought into the colours of the flowers.

A Right Ol' Tea Cosy

Made up this wee (I mean huge) Tea Cosy over the last few days.
It made using my Tea Cosy Pattern but BIGGER, this will fit a 8 - 10 cup pot comfortably.

All I did was add another round to each granny Square before joining them together - everything else was exactly the same.

Dont you love the bubblegum pink PomPom!!

If I had a Super Power it would be the ability to crochet problems away - not big proper problems like poverty and hunger, but little mundane problems like keeping all my garlic in one place instead of on the bench, window sill, under the onions and wherever else it might be lurking.
So this weekend I used my super power for good, some neon / neutral crochet goodness.

Told ya it was good, now I am thinking I might need a few more of these in differing sizes.

It was so quick to whip up just going around and around and around (and around and around).

So, what shall my Super Name be - Super Crocheter? The Woolly Wonder? The Yarnanator!!............any reference to "hooker is a def NO!!
