Some finished objects for Friday

As it’s Friday I thought I’d show off a few recently finished objects… I’ve been relatively quiet about crafting over the past few weeks, mainly because there’s been so much to share about food and gardening, but that does not that I’ve not been busy with my hooks and needles. I’ve made two pairs of snails – one of which has its own carry bag made out of an old pyjama leg (!) – a hedgehog (a commission which has gone to Belgium I think), a hat for my mum for her birthday, and some socks.

The hat and the colourful snail wool are both yarn that I bought from Colinette in January before they closed. The brown snail yarn is from West Yorkshire Spinners. The cream yarn used in all the snails is from The Inkpot. And the socks are knitted from Regia yarn for my swap with Kathryn.

So have you any finished objects to share… knitted, sewn, written, painted, drawn… anything creative?

  1. Things in progress! But you’ll have to wait for my ScrapHappy post on 15th… It’s been lovely to work with lots of different colours again, and use up some of my huge and ever-expanding scrap collection.

  2. Adorable! You have been busy. ❤

    Snails of stripyness. Love it. 🙂 And yes, Belgium. His name is Herbert. They love him. Thank you.

  4. Right now I am knitting trees for a village green project for my granddaughter. Thinking hedgehogs and snails would fit quite nicely. Love your projects.

  5. Love them all. Gather the hat was hiding in the bag. 🙂 Me? nothing, nothing, nothing. Maybe next week. I did manage a post for the first time in 2 months. 😦

  6. It is about time I stopped lurking and chimed in! I found your blog via Looby a few weeks ago :-). I am currently working through the People and Permaculture book. I home school our two youngest kids, live with a chronic illness and care for a hubby with MS and a son with type one diabetes, I knit, crochet and sew project bags and other items. I am using permaculture principles in the planning, designing and writing a curriculum for our next home school year. Since life is never straightforward at this end I am planning in seasonal chunks with an eye to changing and adapting where necessary! I currently have three fibre projects on the go a colourful striped crochet bag, one pair of socks using the newly learned continental method and a jumper.

    Thanks for sharing all that you do, your blog is my happy place 🙂

    • How lovely to hear from you, San. There are lots of permie people who home-school so I’m sure you’ll find loads of support and inspiration in the community if you want 🙂
      I do feel for you in your role as a carer – having grown up with a severely disabled parent I understand the impact that can have on family life. I do hope that your creativity helps bring you joy – I find knitting and crochet are my form of meditation! I’d love to see what you’re making… if you use Facebook, send me a friend request if you’d like 😉

  7. love the pyjama leg bag and your commitment to recycling 🙂

    • I really like the pyjamas and couldn’t bring myself to throw them out, so it was nice to be inspired to do something with at least a part of the fabric. I think I shall make some more bags with other parts as it’s quick and easy, and a lovely way to present sales/gifts. I was even more inspired with the draw-cord – it’s a length of fabric from a broken umbrella!

  8. You are so talented. Your work is amazing. I’m literally in awe. 😀

  9. I’m loving everything I see here. Your hedgehogs are absolute winners – my two are constantly picked up and examined by visitors and then rescued before a very interested Siddy can claim them ….. Love the blue snail with the cream shell – that would be my pick, though the pair are very striking together too. And those aardvarks are so full of personality! You are turning into a yarny zoologist 🙂

  10. I admit I gave a squeeeeeee when I saw your hedgehog – then I saw your snails, and fell in love – they are wonderful! 🙂
    I really like your Mum’s hat, too, but am totally green with envy over your continuing sock makes 🙂
    Clever girl!

    • There are going to be few FOs fpr a while now as I really am trying to get this lace-weight cardigan done for 4 September!
      The hedgie is made with eyelash yarn, which reminds me – did you ever finish The Librarian?

      • I can’t wait to see the finished product then, as I’m hopeless at using lace-weight yarn 🙂

        It’s ironic you used eyelash yarn – that’s what I used for the Librarian – and I got as far as completing the head, and just couldn’t cope with using it any more, so I turned it into a keyfob, which Brex adores! Lol

        Remind me next time you call, to sort out the eyelash yarn I’ve got, so that you to take it home to be used? 🙂

        • The hedgies are ok because actually only a small simple dome is done with eyelash yarn… all the fiddly bits are in normal yarn… I can’t imagine trying to work anything bigger or more complex n the hairy stuff!
