Stockings and snow
At last I have my camera back in full working order, yipee I have missed her.
I don't usually put the xmas decorations up quite this early but with all this snow and seeing all the other festive blogs I couldn't resist getting a few bits out, the tree will have to wait until the weekend.
These are the stockings I made last year, I was fairly new to crocheting when I made them and the very first time I had ever followed a pattern. They took me weeks to make but I was so pleased with them once they were finished. Looking at them again this year I can see a few faults but I still love them and hope they will be around for many years to come.
I was going to share with you a photo of the ear warmers I made for the xmas fair, but they all went before I managed to get the camera working, I have a few more to make so will make sure I get a snap.
I have also had a few orders for the cowls I made, I am being kept very busy.
I used a brooch fastening for the flower so there is the choice of where to put it or to take it off and wear it with something else.
I had two baby hats left after the fair so these have gone in the box for next years fairs as I don't think this style will date.
I will admit to trying to squash the purple one on Isla-Roses head as I love it so much, but it wouldn't fit.
Before I go I will share with you one last piccie, snow related of course.
I think Isla is fed up of being stuck in the house, she spends ages with her nose pressed up to the windows looking longingly at the falling snow.
Speak soon xx
