New year, new projects

It’s been almost two months since I updated my blog – but one of my new year’s resolutions is to get back into updating regularly and finding some new crafty blogs to follow.

Lots has happened in two months.  I’ve worked hard, run lots, got a new job (which I start in three weeks’ time), had a lovely Christmas and most importantly for this post, done LOTS of crochet.

Here’s a round-up:

A bear hood from Simply Crochet magazine:

A shawl for my grandma for Christmas, using an Erika Knight pattern…

Someone commissioned me to make a giraffe…

And I had a go at making my first proper doll, red riding hood style…

Closely followed by a better doll, with better hair and clothes…

At the same time, I was making a cowl from Inside Crochet magazine using Malabrigo yarn…

And now I’m making the unicorn from the film Despicable Me – another commission, halfway through…
