I have been working on a few small projects this last week, so I have managed to complete three things from my Ravelry favourites!
The first project that I wanted to take, was inspired by this mug cosy that I discovered during my Rainbow of Etsy.
I thought that the cosy was adorable and looked lovely in the cheerful yellow colour. When I discovered some oddment balls of yellow yarn a local yarn store for 25p/ball I knew that this was exactly what I wanted. I found a pattern on Ravelry, which incorporated a coaster into the mug cosy design. I decided that this was a more practical solution, so I made this:
Featuring me preferred beverage in an embroidered design (with special thanks to my mum who helped with the lettering!) I am very happy with my final product!
I managed to find the eyes for 10p each on my trip to Whitby, so this was a very cheap make indeed! I thought it would be practical to make myself one of these, as I often carry my crochet around with me, particularly when I go to my boyfriend’s house, so this allows me to just slip the couple of hooks that I need into my bag without them getting lost!
My final project of the week was my scarf, which I made using the pretty King Cole Galaxy yarn, which had little pink sequins in it!
I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out! The sequins look stunning and shine really well, but unfortunately this wasn’t captured in the photograph. I am also very happy as it featured the dreaded picot edging which I usually struggle with, but I thing it had turned out pretty successful here!
So after a busy week of crochet, I need to choose some projects for next week!
