A few more Christmas Decorations.  These have all got a little chocolate in them and I love the little Ferrero Rocher Mini Christmas Pudding ones.  If I get time I will be doing more of these and adding them to my own Christmas Tree when it get's put up.

Just some of the little Christmas Outfits that I have done for 2015.  Yet again there are lots more but no photo's.  Must remember to take photo's of everything I do.

And we can't forget the little Christmas Stockings that I have done.  How cute are these.

There's more of these just not got a photo of them yet.  Will add them later with a few other Christmas decorations that I have done.

And then I started working on some Hat/Scarf/Mitten sets all done in Aran.  These have gone to a charity who will hand them out as Christmas Gifts to the most needy of children.

And then I did this.  It was quite a task having to work the pattern from the top down but I am very happy with it and will be making lots more of these.

My next project will be to find another suitable motif to add to the sleeping bag.  Not sure what that will be just yet.

And then I did one for the boys.  This one is done in 4 ply.

You can see from the ruler that it is rather tiny.
I have also been doing a little bit of "designing" or as I call it tweaking of patterns to suit what I need.  These are some Sleeping Bags for the Angel Babies that I knit for.

I have also learnt a new skill and that is how to do the Hexagon shaped jackets.  I am not that proficient at crochet still being a novice but with the help of You Tube it's surprising what you can learn.  Once you have got the hang of the first 3 or 4 rounds then your well away.  So these are my first Hexagon Jackets.

Hello everyone well it's been a while since I added anything to my page.  There's been lots going on but I think this is my favourite piece of work of the last few months.

It started out as a way to use up all those small balls of wool that I have loads of but I must say it has finished up as quite a stunning blanket.

I have started another one which I hope to make much bigger so will take quite a while to complete.  Just a couple of squares a day and it should soon be done I hope.  Anyway this is what it looked like.  This is now on it's way to a new home hopefully keeping someone warm this winter.

A blast from last Christmas.  A couple of little outfits I did that I had forgotten about.  So cute would have loved to see a little one wearing these.

Another little Jay set in Large Prem Size.  Trying to get a few of these done as they will be going to Tiny Lives in Northern Ireland  this is the link to there web page if you would like to know about the charity.

This set is called Little Jay and is a large Premature size and is from Marion Ley's collection of patterns.  This is her blog link.

Again another of Marion's designs this time called the All in One Lazy Daisy Premature Baby Top Large Premature size.

And this one is from a designer called angelknits and the design is called Blessings.

Well this is the first post I have ever done as a blog so here goes.

I intend to add pictures of my work as I complete them and links to the original patterns where possible and any other knitting/crochet info that I find.

Please be patient with me as I have never done anything like this before and although I can add a picture on Facebook I somehow think things might not be quite as easy on here ha ha.
