What we did on our Holy days Pea Shooter Amigurumi Pattern by Erika Devine Yarn: DK very dark green Dark green Light green my creative space... pincushion So I was looking around blogdom, and came across these gorgeous pincushions here, and after a few little linkys found a great pattern here, and of course, I had to make one of my own straight away!! Isn't it cute? Very easy to make, I am picturing an explosion of different coloured pincushions, or I might turn them into dangley decorations, I do so love hanging bits and pieces!.......... Yes, there will definitely be more of theses appearing around here. On another note, would you look at the size of this egg that one of my poor girls squeezed out today! Do you dare to wear a granny square? I’m not sure if I’d manage a granny square evening dress…. But I’m loving the cowl I made last week and have been quite excited to show you! I must apologise for the photos, I’ve cropped them right down this week, so you can’t see the whole effect, but let me tell you, it really is lovely, I tried it on my friend to see how it looked on someone and couldn’t get it off her and back around my neck fast enough! Being that we are heading into winter at what seems like a veeeeeery fast pace right now, I’m obsessed with cowls and this I have to tell you, is the first of a series of cowl posts. Cowls are my new thing, neck warmey snuggliness without flappy ends, they are perfection.

Tiny Einy amigurumi I just finished the Geek Chic swap, my partner being SpectrumSparksie.One of her swap wists was an amigurumi, and among her list of choices, I went for Einstein.After searching the web for ideas, I came up with a big fat nothing, so with a few photos for reference, I went for gold.In his tuxedo: In his labcoat, preparing to be brilliant: His little clipboard, complete with three equations [that Wiki says he made.. The whole deal.

Bauble Decoration I designed these little hanging decorations to add some colourful, homespun Hooky Goodness to my Christmas Tree this season, but there's no reason why they can't be used all year round and in all sorts of ways. I've had suggestions for using them as baby rattles, baby mobiles, as tags on wrapped gifts, or simply just as little decorative gifts to pass on to friends and family. These are quick and satisfying little things to work up, ideal to use up those little itty bits of stash yarn that you might have lurking somewhere. I personally prefer to use cotton yarn for making decorations (here I've used Rico Creative Cotton), but any yarn would be fine. I also tend to switch down a hook size for making decorations which keeps the stitches quite tight and prevents the polyester stuffing showing through the gaps. So for example where the Rico cotton suggests a 5mm hook size, I switch down to a 4mm hook.

CROCHETED ROPE BASKET I love having little baskets and containers around to keep things tidy, and have really been wanting to experiment with different materials to crochet with recently. This little basket is not only a perfect way to practice crocheting with rope, but also to hold little odds and ends! For this project I used a Size P crochet hook and one package of clothesline rope. This rope is nylon, but it would be fun to use cotton rope and experiment with dyeing it different colors! How cute would it be to dye the rope a few different colors and make a giant granny square rug? Now, lets get to the project pictured above... Willy-Nilly Waterlily Please meet the Willy-Nilly Silly Snake. For those of you who are just starting to crochet and are interested in doing amigurumi, I've written this very simple pattern. I've designed this snake to be super easy, super cute, and a great way to use up all those leftover bits of yarn lying about. :)
