I wanted to write a blog post, but as Christmas is so close, I cant really share anything I am currently working on. So I thought instead that I would write a bit about some of my fave patterns.
My first pattern is this wonderful Amineko Cat. I will be honest, It did take me a while to finish these, I wasn’t as experienced when I made these and I miscalculated the amount of time it would take me to complete them. I also had less knowledge of yarn weights and tensions, so the brown cat turned out a little smaller, due to the yarn being slightly lighter and my stitches being tighter. But as a finished object they are just wonderful, and their recipient, my partners mum, absolutely loved them to bits! She sat them at the dinner table and everything. I may have a go at these again in the future, when I have some new cats to model them on!
I absolutely love Dr Who! Its one of my favorite things in the whole world! This is also the case for my bestest friend Catherine. and when her birthday came round, I needed to find something to make her, but time was limited, so I had to find something I could do quickly. And this fitted the bill perfectly – a beautiful little weeping angel. My word, does it work up quickly! It must have only taken me about 45 minutes, and usually, I find projects in SC to be tedious as they take so long to form, but this was super quick and super easy! I urge anyone, even beginners, to give this a go, as it is such a rewarding little make!
My third pattern, these wonderful little day of the dead skulls, were also found out of necessity to make a quick present for the same friend. once again, it works up beautifully. and they look gorgeous. I attached it to a long beaded chain which I recycled from an old necklace I no longer wore, and ta-dah, my friend now has a lovely new necklace! I would really love to have a collection of these in different sizes and to colours to decorate my house with at Halloween, and i am sure my mum would too, so I will definitely be doing these again in the future.
