Variety is the spice of life!

Magda is always a busy crafter! She has just completed these cosy crochet hats for two of her boys.

Now, Elaine really surprised me when she presented her latest finishes. She knitted these napkin rings with 28 gauge wire. This is a gift for a lucky friend, who will be really impressed when she notices the sparkle from the Swarovski crystals.

Isabel has really caught the sock knitting bug. This week she had completed these beautiful stripey socks. I wonder what the next pair of socks will be like!

Karen managed to find time to crochet 2 bonnie wee premie blankets for the Yarnigans group that are supporting a premature baby charity by making little hats and blankets. If you have time to contribute something to this group please see Lisa for details.

This lovely wee blue jacket was knitted by Margaret. How does she find the time? I particularly like the stylish cables.

Fiona made this colourful project bag for Andrea's birthday. This is a really glamorous way to organise your bits and bobs.

Audrey has used Noro sock wool to knit these socks. The yarn is a silk and cotton mix. Audrey was a pupil of Dawn Marie and Karen's when she was learning to knit socks. She is now confident enough in her sock knitting to improvise with the pattern. What a star!

When I saw Dawn Marie working on Tuesday night I was taken aback by the size of her crochet hook.......12mm! She was using Bernat super chunky yarn that she bought in Florida. I can't wait to see her completed project.

Janice has been learning to knit socks and was as pleased as punch to display socks she made for herself. The yarn was bought in the Bargain Wool Shop at the Barras.

Karen and June supplied the patterns for our group Charity - Hats and Balaclavas for the Sea-farers. Please use yarn that will provide warmth in chilly climates.

A little reminder about our 2014 Challenge which is entitled "Glasgow 2014." You could make anything that reflects your idea of Glasgow. Think outside the box.........Donna was a very worthy winner when she won with her crocheted "Haggis, neeps and tatties!" Have a go!

The quilt Show is on 21st -23rd of February 2014 at the MacRoberts Pavillion, Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh. Well worth a visit.

Creative Stitches is on at the SECC, Glasgow on 6th -9th March 2014. Time to stock up on supplies!
