Crochet Christmas Love …

26/12/2011 § 2 Comments

Last week I treated myself to a book from Marmalade Yarns in Frome …

I was literally itching to open it before Christmas, but ‘Himself’ had been handed the red paper carrierbag as I left the shop, with strict instructions to wrap it up very tightly – and hide it!

It duly arrived, safely down the chimney, yesterday morning and it’s a wonder the projects didn’t end up in the oven ‘cos I had it open with my cookery books in the kitchen all day, as I checked a few ingredient details whilst preparing the dinner!

Alpaca + Merino yarn
2 tsp cinnamon
4 mm crochet hook
slug of sherry

I couldn’t wait to pick up my hook and in no time at all last evening …


I made my first babushka!  I just love her little face and I bet each one will have a character all of her own.  Of course, they’ll have to have names too!

I can’t wait to make another one – or two – or have a go at some of the other projects from the book, all of which are beautifully photographed and inspiring.  Just love Boxing Day – no need to worry about food – there’s plenty of everything in the fridge and ‘Himself’ is off to footie so I have a whole afternoon to myself.

Oohhhhh – I love holidays!

    Oh she is very cute.
    One of this years resolutions (and one that I have carried forward for a couple of years now) is to learn to crochet!!! I MUST do it soon, the problem is I have so many things I want to make using other crafts that stopping to learn to do something else gets pushed to one side. Maybe once we’ve moved house……
    Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas time (need to remember to make those yummy looking pastries!)
    Wishing you all the very best for the New Year
