The post is all about catching up. I've been up to a few things these last two weeks and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you here now.
I made another Hearts Desire Doily. This pattern is so cute and so easy to do. It's really fast and the final outcome can be really different depending on the yarn you use.
I made this one with size 6 cotton and a 1.75mm hook and it measures 12 cm / 4.75". I've made one before with a DK yarn and that was nearly twice as big.
These tags are fabric. Isn't the wording on them nice? Handmade with love, so true for a crochet item, don't you think? :)
I drew a winner for the instagram giveaway I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. It was won by the lovely Joy from joyjinkscreations.blogspot.com and this shawl is on its way to her right now:
I've started a Facebook page for my crochet

My All at Sea shawl has been translated into German and is now available in Simply Hakeln magazine under the name Meeresrauschen :)
I have started a huge WIP. That is a 15mm hook which is the biggest one I own.
What's the biggest hook you've used? What is your favourite size hook? I love my 4, 4.5 and 5 mm hooks the best. This 15mm is hard work after a while. I think it's even more difficult to use than the tiny 1.75mm I used for the doily.
I started another WIP with this amazing yarn:
Here it was to begin with:

And then finally I finished the first part:
One sock down, one more to go!
On the subject of amazing yarn, what do you think of this:
I liked the look of the skein but when I opened it up to wind it I fell in love. Look at those colours! It's Ella Rae Lace Merino.
It is now a bright yarn cake waiting to be crocheted into something :)
And finally today, here is a little sewing project from the end of September:
I had a couple of fat quarter packs that I wanted to use for a quick and easy project.
I made a little tote bag:
Which quickly became a yarn bag
I'll be visiting your blogs over the next few days to catch up with all your crafty work from the last couple of weeks.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
