Crochet friends forever

With Georgia off to the States in a couple of days I’ve decided to smuggle myself in her suitcase. I won’t take up much room, I promise…

Now you can finally see what I look like -stunning hey?

And to stop me getting lonely I made a mini-Georgia too:

If only I could really clone her…

The pattern was from Crochet Is For Lovers and it’s definitely a pattern I will keep on using.

Lovely DH whittled the mini crochet hooks for me from wooden skewers.

And now Mini Dilly and Mini Georgia can happily crochet together for eternity *sniff*



Little owl


Ignoring all the other projects I have on the go or am planning, I whipped up this sweet little owl yesterday. Sometimes I just want a ‘quick win’ project that I can get done from start to finish in a couple of hours. This was one of those projects.

It is done in single crochet in the round, amigurumi style, with felt for the eyes, beak and wings. The inspiration came from the amusing blog Scissors & Steam. This little owl is a gift for a friend’s daughter but I have a feeling I’m going to be knocking a few more of these out, they are so easy and quite satisfying. It’s nice to feel a sense of achievement in an otherwise half-finished life.
