DAY 13 ADVENT CALENDAR

Don't you just hate it when they discontinue a yarn you love?
STARTED THIS ONE...

FROM THIS BLOCK








Only to find out yesterday they discontinued the colour way, pity it would have made a great blanket repeating the block of 9

DAY 12 ADVENT CALENDAR

A little bit of Apache stitch, ear warmers and a glasses purse, love this easy stitch worked alternately with 2 contrasting colours it works a treat






Lovely firm stitch would make great cushion covers


and so many combinations of the simple stitch can be worked

DAY 11 ADVENT CALENDAR SLIPPER WRAP

Well, it's getting harder and harder to crochet every day, time of the year! 
What with Christmas lunches, outing and shopping......Always seem to find a few minutes to crochet but posting the results is not so easy.

Last Knit and Natter yesterday, thanks Linda for starting the group and for modelling my Slipper Wrap...


Linda started the Knit and Natter i joined at The Lantern just a few months ago 

Couldn't think of an edging stitch for The Slipper Wrap, so i wore it any way and everyone agreed it didn't really need another edging stitch as it has the sc, ch3, sc, loop, join as you go edging already, for now i'm leaving it without.




Christmas Lunch out and i'm only just back so not a lot of crochet time again to day xx

DAY 8, 9 &10 ADVENT CALENDAR

A little bit poorly over the weekend with a chesty cough, couple of days of Christmas Films and lots of sleep, flu plus and hot drinks. Still a bit full of cold but lots better this morning.


So. I managed to complete the Slipper wrap motifs, 

ALL 49 of them that makes it 
approx. 80" [203cm] long x 16" [41cm] wide

I hope to complete a small border this afternoon and share some finished pictures tomorrow of me wearing it, to the Knit andNatter i go too once a month .



Love it already going to be really snuggly folded in half and wraps around my neck with both ends to the front.

Made from the front slipper motif in my book 2 
Granny Squares and Shapes page 56



Very simple last row of sc, and ch3 loops to join as you go in every second st.
I'll add the border pattern tomorrow
