Handmade Monday #118

What a week, wind rain and Storm Gareth hoping for some dry weather with sun even if colder. Much prefer the cold weather and dry to wet and mild.

Not sure where this week has gone but looking back have managed to make quite a bit. My stall in May is going to be full.

Ladies Shrug

Took a while to get into this pattern but after a few rows quite happy. The hardest bit was the filly edges as had to use a circular needle. Never got on with these before but quite happy and would use again. The yarn has a gold thread with mini sequins running through it.

A baby jumper with buttons on the shoulder and broderie anglais trim added.

A baby waistcoat with cap sleeves in lilac random yarn with pom pom's on the ties

Not one to waste wool managed to make a tiny hat with pom pom with the leftovers

Finally some slumber party bags, ideal for a girls' sleepover.

Think going for a rest now. Have to clean the inside of the car of dog hairs on Monday ready for the MOT later in the week. Fingers crossed it passes.

  1. That gold wool is lovely - very glamorous. And I love the baby knits too.

  2. Wow, you have been busy and very creative. I especially like the flounced edge on the shrug you have made, it really elevates it to another level. #handmademonday

  3. I'm the same, I not a fan of mild and wet weather, I much prefer cold and crisp mornings. Let's hope we get some of them again soon.
    That little hat with the tiny pom pom is just adorable.
