Blanket and Blankets and Blankets!

In an effort to use up some of my stash of cheap wool given as freebies on magazines I am making a series of blankets.

The first blanket was my but your not a Granny Blanket



The second was my summer blanket


The third one is now this



And there is a fourth one on it's way!

Valentines.

Yes I know it has gone but I have just realized that I forgot to post a picture of the card I made for Mr Elephant!

So here goes.



It was the first time I have used several different techniques in one card.
The Hearts fold open to reveal a secret message.  

Whilst this has been sat on the mantelpiece I have thought about the fact that this may be a good idea for a wedding card!  with either the names of the bride and groom inside or perhaps a secret message just for them!

More Stripeness!




Oh dear I think this might be an addiction.  Even the littlest elephant has his own now

Fingerless Heaven

It is so cold in this house that I have made myself a pair of stripy finger less mittens to wear inside.




Pattern taken from the lovely Lucy at Attic24.  One slight snag I think I may need to may them slightly longer to cover my wrists but there is the beauty of crotchet as I haven't added an edging I can just take up my hook and yarn and carry on!


I Just love the way the colour have gone together and I am itching to make more things with this colour combination!
