Tired of crochet

Or tired from crochet? I don't know. I only know I won't touch a hook again. Today. Maybe tomorrow. ;)

I guess I have been working a little too hard these last few days. My thumbs are hurting. But at least I got something for my trouble. For a while at least. She'll be up for sale too.

She's a sweetheart, don't you think? I was worried she would look all weird, since I never manage to make the flowers flat when I work with a small hook. And I have to, to avoid the stuffing to sneak out. Especially the pentagons are hard. But she flattened out when I filled her up.

Want to make one? Here's the pattern!

Prince Charming

I am in love! ♡

Isn't he gorgeous?! Heidi Bears should get the Nobel Prize in crochet, she's a genious!

I was afraid I might not finish him today since I ran out of yarn, but I worked my magic with what I had and it turned out fine.

I'm glad I had some gold hidden in my yarn treasure too, for his crown. He was pretty fiddly to make at times, but I love him dearly. He will be up for sale on that market, but I'm starting to think I should make him so expensive that noone will buy him! ;)

If you want to make one, here's the pattern.

Me, a crochet teacher?

Not really, but today I had the joy to knvite a friend into the World of Crochet. She's been interested for a while, and always send me pictures of cool crochet stuff she has spotted on the web. She is also the reason I found the pattern for the african flower pony. And today she popped in. I got started on a new piece of crochet and showed her how to. She seemed to get it so I threw her a hook and some yarn, and a few hours later she had made this.

I'm impressed! She really got the hang of it and she loved it too. And she was fast too, I am making the same thing and I didn't get so much further.

Do you want to know what we are making? Stripey owl rattles! I have made one allready.

Cutest pattern! And easy to make too.

Do you want to know what else I'm working on? Okay, I have made this (so far) leg-less, blind guy.

I hope to finish him tomorrow. Another pattern from Heidi Bears. I saved a week from my summer vacation, so I will be at home this entire week as the kids are free from school. Lots of time to crochet. Yay! :)

My flower pony

Hi there! Just a small post, have to show you the pony I just finished. Pattern by Heidi Bears, "Fatty Lumbkin the brave African Flower Pony" found here on Ravelry.

Try it! It's a brilliant pattern! This beauty will follow me to a handicraft market a bit before Christmas and hopefully be sold. Yes, you are allowed to sell objects made from her patterns, as long as you make them yourself.
