Crochet Mittens in Winter

So last night I was up late making a couple of these puppies. They'll be nice for the early fresh air on the way to work I think!

Deep red

The other night i was taking some photos of a new piece I'm working on, and thought I'd share this shot with you all. I LOVE the texture in this photo, it's almost like water.... think i'll make a blue one next!

As for the piece, it's almost finished, and i'll be stitching it tonight! Photos asap.

Again! The white is being a real pain to photograph - we'll get there in the end!
So instead, I pumped out another scarf among the skirts we've been working on. This one is a deep shade of purple and is made in a gorgeous merino/alpaca blend, and is so soft!

new swing tags

Tonight we've been playing around some canvas swing tags...
Here's a little sneak peek...
