FO Friday 20/01/12

Yeah it's Finished Off Friday!
My negative positive for today is:
Negative:  Been ill this week and struggling to crochet at times
Positive:  I have time to relax, soak in the bath and think of new ideas

I always love having new ideas in my head.  Just wish I had more hands so I could make them quicker.

I've got a number of FOs as I've been making things for Valentines Day:

My Valentine Kindle Cover
I wanted to soften the top off so instead of doing a straight finish I decided the shell stitch would work better.
So many people are buying kindles that I thought it would be a nice cover to make.

I do love my hats :-)
I may even take a picture of me wearing this one as it looks really good on.
I think I'm creating my theme for Valentines.  I love the colours and I think the shell stitch gives a soft romantic edge.  Of course as it's valentines it needs a heart.

A mug cosy.  I'm going to take a better picture (if it ever brightens up)

A coffee cosy.

I have also made my first charity hat.  I wanted to make a basic beanie so that I can make more quicker and then everyone gets one similar.  I have chosen a bright orange to start as I wanted to combat the dull at the moment with something bright.

To my excitement I have started learning Tunisian crochet
I wanted something basic to start with so I decided to make my son a cowl

My son loves it which is the most important thing.  This should be the inside of the cowl but my son loved the texture of it and wanted it as the front instead.  I love the way it looks like knitting but it's just as fast and easy as crochet :-)

I also made him a hat and mittens to match.  The mittens were meant to be fingerless but Little Red want them to have ends on that he could open if he wanted to

last but least here is my little man wearing his new set.  He is wearing his pjs as he wanted to wear them as soon as he got up this morning.

I hope you've enjoyed all my FOs
I will be selling my Valentines items on my website:

  4. Love all the hearts! Super cute!

  5. I am a sucker for hearts. Always have been. The hat is my absolute favorite!! I wish my baby girl (12) was still a baby. She would look so cute in one of those with her copper red hair. They grow so fast. I have a giveaway going on over at my blog please stop by and see.

  6. Lots of cute crochet stuff. Hope you feel better soon!

  7. Good job on all your FOs. What a cute picture of your boy! He looks like he loves all his hand knits.

  8. Thank you all for your wonderful comments. The funny thing is me and my husband don't celebrate Valentines. He really doesn't like soppy stuff! I think that's why I love making things for other people to enjoy :-)

  9. Thanks, Cute but very cheeky but wouldn't have him any other way!

  10. I love your heart projects! They are very sweet.

  11. Ooooh Tunisian crochet! I love that!

  12. Well, you've been very productive. Being home sick is never fun but being home sick and still able to enjoy fiber arts...well, that's another story.

  13. Pretty projects, the Kindle cover is my favorite...I like the frilly edge.

  14. Wow, I so love the white hat with the red heart!

  15. Thanks ever so much! I'm hoping to get my earwarmer finished today :-)

  16. Love the little heart cap! So precious. I hope you stop by my party and link up…
