Crochet lovelies :)

So I know I have already put a quick post on today but I thought I would post this one as I have been very busy today and I just could not wait to share with you lovely blogging friends as I know you will understand my giddiness at getting a project started and finished on the same day.

First though I want to show you something I think is totally gorgeous and right up our crocheting street. After going for lunch yesterday the hubby and I were walking through town when something caught my eye in the window of Monsoon. Luckily I had a camera to hand and I had to take a pic right then!

Can you see? It is a granny stripe scarf!!! I have already started my own using this yarn but I think I am going to have to hunt for a similar yarn to that on the picture so if any of you know where I can get some. I know this scarf is for a girl but I too love the colours.

Now on to why I am blogging again this evening. Well as many of you kind and lovely people know I am creating items to sell on a Christmas charity stall and after seeing some ideas on the web I decided to create this

It is a hot water bottle cover. I am sorry the photo isn't the best but it is dark, I just couldn't wait to take it. I still have to sew on the felt parts but other than that it has been a one day project(well best to make use of the husband as he is not in work!)
I plan on making a couple more to put on the stall and I hope people love them as much as me :)


  1. Hi Emma,Love that snowman, what a great idea. The scarf is lovely too.

  2. Hi Emma! That scarf is really pretty, and I LOVE how your Snowman hot-water bottle cover came out! Nice work!! Have a good night! ~tina

  3. Mr. Snowman is cute, cute, cute!

  4. Very cute alright! That scarf is too cool as well.

  5. The hot water bottle cover is very cute! And I bet that scarf costs a fortune - so cool that you can make your own for a lot less and a lot more fun!

  6. That scarf is very pretty. I would love to make a granny stripe out of the colors and yarn.

    Mr. Snowman is adorable.

  7. That scarf is great - bet Monsoon is charging a FORTUNE for it though which is the thing that makes me cross when I know it cen certainly be made for less than what they are charging. The hot water bottle cover is a GREAT idea! A rudolph one with great big antlers would look fab! xxxx

  8. Hi Emma,
