The Favourite Pink Handspun Beret

This is my second favourite hat of all time. I mean it’s pretty close with the red Entrelac one but I feel like this one should get some extra points because I spun the yarn myself and designed the pattern as well…

This was one of the first yarns that I spun which actually looked like… you know, yarn! It’s an Ashford blend of merino and silk called Sorbet and the roving looks like a rainbow Paddlepop!

Spun up, the rainbow is a lot more subtle and it looks more like a soft pinky purple with a subtle colour shift every now and then.

The pattern is just a simple beret with an alternating YO/K2tog lace but I think the result is quite effective in showing off the yarn nicely. You can still see the colours shift in the light.p1040913 p1040915 p1040916 p1040917 p1040919

Weaving A Twill Scarf

Another yarn project… another gift! This one I did when learning how to weave and specifically how to weave twill.

Rather than buy a loom I just used an old frame from a canvas.

Then I used a needle threaded with yarn to weave in a 2×2 pattern._1270106 _1270107

To get the twill pattern, the next row is 2×2 but one over than the previous, this is what gives it that cool diagonal shape.

At one point I tired making a really dodgy looking heddle system using string and pens but it didn’t work because there wasn’t enough room for each of the 4 potential string sets.

Crochet Gumball Cozy

I made this as a gift for Cazz who is awesome and loves Gumball. I did take the photos for a tutorial but it’s been a really long time so I can’t remember the stitch counts etc. I’m sure if you were super dedicated you could count them from the photos though haha!

I went through a serious phase making these character mug cozies. I think it’s because they are so quick and easy to do so there’s a lot of instant crafting gratification.

Knitted Cupcake Hat

This swirly cupcake hat was made for a friend who was going through a bit of a rough patch and needed some serious cheering up. Who could be sad with a cupcake hat? There were a lot of instructions online for crochet versions but I wanted to knit one. In the end I came up with a method which was kind of a bit like entrelac going round in sections. I ripped it out like 4 times trying to get the swirl to be natural and wish I’d written down a pattern as I was going now!

Crochet Glasses

Because why not I guess? I can’t actually remember why I made these? I think it was possibly to be able to try on different frames of glasses to decide which to order online haha! Either way they are actually quite a cute project ^_^
