All Kinds Of Everything!

Anthea was delighted with the way her Attic 24 Interlocking Ripple Pattern blanket worked out. It is a work of art. The yarn is Stylecraft special DK which came in an Attic 24 "Lucy " pack. Confused? Then get yourself over to the Attic 24 blog and explore the world of a very talented lady.

Kat wanted a knitting bag like the one her mum had, so she made this replica bag. She even re-cycled the handles and the ruler on the side of the bag. This is a really practical bag with pockets for a pattern and other crafting supplies. I'm very impressed!

Izzy crocheted this beautiful doll's pram blanket with odds and ends of left over yarn. She even had time to make a baby hat with a pretty flower addition.

Patsy was as proud as punch with the way this baby bag turned out. Izzy inspired her to make one of her famous baby bags as a gift for her new great-nephew.

At last I completed this pair of socks for myself. The yarn was an internet buy from some time ago and I enjoyed the way the colour changes worked but I didn't like the yarn itself because it split. I'm just glad I got to the end.

Janice had some time on her hands and made some bunting for the creche she volunteers in.The fabric was from IKEA. As a grandmother-in-waiting she wanted to make something for the baby. Janice decided to up-cycle an old cot duvet cover into a cosy cot quilt. This recycling business is fairly catching on!

 Janice still had some fabric to make some more of those cute bunnies and bibs. She even had time to knit a little green cardigan for her future grandchild. I love the way the buttons tone in with the cardi!

This is one of Janices' trade mark fairies. It has been made for a little girl who is about to become a big sister.

Ohhhhhhhhh! Lovely! Caroline made this amazing Elsa doll from Frozen. Some little girl will be enchanted with this. We were. Stephanie could hardly put it down.

And now for something completely different! Jill made this amazing hat for her nephew. It matches his coat. Jill adapted the pattern and then improvised a little.

Sometimes out crafters gift their work before they come to our group. Catriona made these wonderful hand embroidered silk pillows  for someone. Is there no end to the number of crafts this woman can do? I am truly impressed with the variety of skills found at this wee group!

The group send their best wishes to Margaret and we look forward to seeing soon.

We are still at the Fort! Happy crafting!
