My needles have been clicking, my hooks have been flying and I have been digging deep into my yarn stash to unearth some with a soft and warm feel to make winter warmers. I found a splendid pattern through Ravelry which turned out to be a Red Heart link  for some lovely lacy wrist warmers

As usual I have initially used the pattern but adapted it to my taste by adding a row here and there, changing the edging to a shell design and changing the way I have joined each round without turning the work except on the one thumb hole row.

My second make is the lovely medallion scarf and on this occasion  I followed the pattern without a single change apart from the yarn!

This is a selection of what I have made.

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
