Crochet headgear, more gauntlets and a small muse!

Well what a busy week and a bit I’ve had! So sorry for not updating sooner but … phew! The computer decided it wasn’t very happy so I have had to be very patient whilst it was fixed by my Marvellous Mr! – thanks Marvellous Mr)

Anyway onto crochet goodness! Even more fairy gauntlets have been ordered and this pair is winging it’s way to Edinburgh. Very exciting in itself. Pretty much as far away from me as possible without actually leaving the U.K. Another pair are being created for a lovely lady, The Flower Singer, who launches her E.P this week… I’m going to the launch – I wonder if she might wear some??  Every pair is different … mainly because I can’t remember exactly what I did the time before so the combination of trebles, half trebles and doubles changes every time! Although the star buttons are very popular. I may make a small crochet flower to go on the next pair instead. Hmmmm, I feel an experiment coming on!

Lovely starry gauntlets!

I’ve also made this ear warmer … Still trying to find someone to model it as although it is for me I don’t really do headgear of any variety so it shows how chilly it’s been. So you will have to imagine what it is like on! I really like the clashing colours of the small flower. Many apologies for the poor light in this photo. Candlelight, although lovely, doesn’t really cut it!


And finally, I had a vintage teacup that I was going to make a pin cushion from but never got round to it. It has been sat looking at me for many a month , reproachfully gazing at me, ‘use me for something … anything…’ It seemed to be saying. So the other night I popped in a tea light and voila … A new candle holder. Being a fan of candles as anyway I really like how it looks …  no melting of wax and no saucepans were injured in the making of it. I think it works but how about you?


And I’ll leave you with a beautiful piccie of some gorgeous roses that a friend bought me. I do love yellow – reminds me of sunny days!


Til next time, I’ll be experimenting. what will you be doing?
