Lace Stitch Markers

A Phoenix forum friend asked me to make her some smooth stitch markers for lace knitting.  They need to be light weight smooth and preferably have no joins on the rings etc.  So I had a play with my beading kit and came up with the following 2 sets.  I made them primarily on wire with some very light weight small beads, I added the lettered beads as a bit of fun :-)  Both sets will fit up to 5mm needles max which should be plenty big enough for lace knitting :-)

They are now in the post on their way to Yunaleska :-)

Crochet Pram Blanket

This was a quick make at the request of a friend for her 6 month old daughter.  I used some mixed DK oddments that I had in stash, my only colour guideline was as girly as I liked!  So here is the result!  A very girly 31 inch square pram blanket for Nymue :-)

Playful Eeyore!

Another finish - Eeyore cross stitch!  He's looking rather playful in this one :-)  Not sure where he will be homed as yet but he'll be put with the other finished ones to be framed in due course :-)

Busy Fingers!

February has started with a busy theme!  I am happily still plodding my way through an Eeyore cross stitch.  On the *to do* list is 2 8 inch squares for the friendship blanket project on the Phoenix forums, I have the yarn at the ready just need to start them off :-)

I also have a request from a friend for a crochet pram blanket for her youngest daughter, when asked what colour scheme I have been let loose with instructions to make it as girly as I like :-)  So I have had a good stash dive and have made a start!  Piccies to follow when there is progress, naturally there will be one of Eeyore when he's done too!

Still on the to do list is also my chunky cardigan and summer top but there's no rush for them as they are for me :-)
