a bit of blue

The long weekend has seen us tucked up inside for most of it, with rain, rain and more rain pouring down outside. It has meant that I've had a chance to do a little crafting, finishing off some projects that have been half started and working on some that I have been meaning to start. Like the blue rug for miss E, when she saw this one that I made for my room she wanted one for hers. I chose some more of the factory off cuts for hers but it's much softer on the feet than mine and it worked up really quickly. For any crocheters out there, I worked in the back loops for each round creating more of a ring look.

I finished this beanie off for my sister who has a cold head in Wellington, I used a thrifted merino jumper so it's nice and lightweight and finished it off with a small patch from umbrella prints. Doesn't my hair look like a scarecrows? I probably should have got someone who had brushed their hair to be my model, ahem.

I started some of these for miss E, I'll share the finished product soon, I ran out of elastic and couldn't quite finish them much to the annoyance of a housebound 4 year old desperate to try out her new wings.
