More cats, this time of the four-eyed variety! Stare at them and it is hard to convince yourself your eyes are not going funny! Thank you Linda Sue for a great parcel with great wrapping!
I am doing another crochet course-to make amigurumi monsters. But it gave me the idea of just going round and round to make some hand warmers. The stitch looks quite different when you go round and round-I really like the texture. Then for the top bit I crocheted into the back of the stitch as demonstrated on the course and this gives another texture. I bought this yarn for the colour-so lovely-I used to have a jumper of this colour a long time ago but it got shrunk in the wash. I had one failed try-just too big and baggy around, and then could not undo it as the fluffy fibres got tangled. I started again and increased the stitches to shape them a bit over the hand. They are a bit tight to get on but once on are fine. Tomorrow I think I am going to try to make an actual monster!
The Amaryllis in my kitchen-so beautiful. It is in a very little pot, and had fallen over when we got back from Brighton. I weighted it down with rocks as I couldn't really repot it when it was so big and it has survived ok.
I finally bought a cushion pad for my hexagon cushion-the pad is not quite big enough but it will do for now. I love my row of cushions-one of the tidiest and clearest bits of the flat!
