Having another go with this blog and decided to start with a round up of 2012 crafting. A poor year for blogging but not a bad one on the crafting front so here are just a few of the completed projects in 2012. There were other items that I gave away and forgot to take pictures of and some that didn't quite get finished but I'm pretty pleased with most of the things that got made.
The biggest item was the patchwork granny blanket and I am very pleased with the result. I have enough yarn left to make a matching cushion so that will be one of the things on the list to make in 2013. I guess the one I'm most proud of is the Doris Chan sequined evening jacket. I love the sequined yarn, the jacket fits perfectly and I made it!
Because we intend to get the bedroom done this year I have taken the rainbow ripple out of hibernation and intend to get it finished this year so that it can finally take up its rightful place on our bed...
I have decided to add a border when the blanket reaches optimum size because I think it will help it to keep its shape as well as adding about 6 inches of overhang on each side of the bed. Looking forward to getting this one done.
I also have plans to make some fingerless mits to match the totally mad tasseled hat shown in the mosaic and maybe some legwarmers too. I already have all the matching Mini Mochi yarn so its just a case of 'getting on with it!'
Which is precisely what I intend to do right now. Hopefully there'll be another entry in the not too distant future meanwhile if anyone happens by this post Happy 2013!
