I made my first pair of mitts with a thumb and front and back post:)

Sharing photos of a hat scarf and mitt set I completed today. I love the way it came out. It is made with chunky (bulky) wool/yarn. I free styled this set and did not write the pattern up. I enjoyed making it and I love the colour way.

I finished these kitty crochet hats yesterday. They are done using puff stitch. I used twj crochet geek's patteren. you can find Teresa's channel on you tube. This is for the main body of the hat. I made the facial features up myself.

I started a Easter bonnet a few weeks ago. This is my progress so far. The brim is basket weave stitch. I tied the ribbon on last night, I just have to stitch it on now. I like the way it came out though.

I am half way through a customer order and in the process of another. Thank you all for being patient, I promise your hat sets will be worth the wait. I apologise for taking so long getting them made however, I have never been one to rush and take pride in the things I create. I will update this with the video links for the valentines giveaway and my 'fresh off tha hook' videos as soon as possible.

Whilst I am here I want to show you a crochet frog hat I made last week for a customer. It is adult size, I think he is rather cheerful, what do you think?

The other thing I wanted to show you is these earrings I made. They are the very first set of crochet earrings I have ever made. I used pure Arran wool and gold crochet thread. These were made with single crochet and picot edging.
