Hot water bottle cover

I had quite a bit of wool left over from my Snow and Ice CAL so decided to make a hot water bottle cover to match. It is just a simple granny square design with two small heart charms added.

Carousel CAL

This had to be one of my favourite CAL's , it even made a little journey part way through its making. A link to the pattern can be found here  there was enough wool from the kit to make an extra blanket called Secret Garden link here both the carousel and secret garden were designed by the super talented Sue Pinner.

The Great Wave

And a little bit of knitting this is a KAL again from the Knitting network, worked over a 3 week period this is 'The great wave' by Kat Goldin another project I want to make again in different colours I am leaning towards purples.Link here

Fridas Flowers

Fridas flowers by Jane Crowfoot was my first ever Cal, before I took part I was only able to crochet basic Granny squares, this CAL taught me so much including how to read written patterns something I had struggled with, a year later I can even read patterns in both UK and US terms.Link here

This has to one of the most stunning designs and one day I hope to find the time to make another in pale colours.
