Here are a few of the crochet gifts I have recently made. Above is the Demelza blanket which I have made for a friend using Stylecraft Special DK in mostly duck egg blue, with some teal, petrol, storm, sage and parchment to compliment. This will be a surprise – I hope she likes it!
I’ve been busy making Christmas socks. Below are pictured just a couple of pairs and some fingerless mitts. Most of the socks I have made are already wrapped. The light isn’t great for photos at this time of year. The reddish socks are made with Drops Fabel and the yellowy ones are West Yorkshire Spinners. The fingerless gloves are made with left overs from the new Fairy Lights sock yarn.
These mum and daughter hats are made from some Alpaca yarn I had. I intended it to be for a scarf knitted in the round for one daughter but it was too itchy around her neck – luckily she tried it before it was finished! So I frogged the yarn and then crocheted these hats instead, they should be super warm.
Lastly I have made a baby blanket using the Patchwork Heart’s gingham JAYG method – thanks Heather! I love the simple gingham effect using graphite, silver and white, again from Stylecraft Special DK.
