I've Made Friday Week 127

Good Morning everyone!

I hope your week is going well
and you are looking forward to the weekend.

Tomorrow is the schools Christmas Fair.
Then Sunday we get the Christmas Decorations down
ready for decorating the house.

I can't believe how close December is!

I've got lots to show you this week.



Here is what I made with Little Red this week.
We bought a selection craft kit.
It's the most popular craft kits from Baker Ross

The colour is actually black and dark red.
This is the hat for Little Red's 
Crazy Hair day at school. 

This is actually baby size.
It's from the Leisure Arts book:

The Bobble Hat is from the book Crochet Boutique Hats.
Little Red loves the hat and wanted a scarf to match.
So mummy to the rescue.
I just followed the basic techniques of the hat
and replicated them in a scarf.

I finished my Deer Pattern from Lovely Baby Gift!
I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough!
It is a 5 out of 5.
The pattern is super easy to follow!
I made ours with a red nose and little red didn't want the mouth or scarf.
You can add them if you want.
I love him!
It is a pattern that is well worth the price!
Every different part of the pattern is easy to follow
and each part is so effective.
I made mine with a double knit acrylic yarn and 3 mm hook.

Here is what the full pattern looks like:
Amigurumi Deer Crochet Pattern, Crochet Deer Pattern, Animal Crochet Pattern, Reindeer, Christmas Deer, CP-134

This week I've read (listened to)
In Cold Blood
by Mark Dawson

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. 
I didn't think the subject matter was something I would enjoy. 
How wrong I was. 
The book is well written and pulls you into the story. 
The emotion and characters are believable and you just want to hear what happens next. 
I can't wait to get the next in the series just to see what happens. 
Will she make it? Will she finish her wish list?
The main character of the story is Rose.
She used to work for the English Government but things turned bad.
She is now out to seek revenge on the people
that ruined her life and meant that she wouldn't see her daughter 
for 8 years.
There are lots of mixed emotions and lots of action.
It was a good read and I'm looking forward to more
of the stories in the series.
