Wonder CAL Part 4

Just finished part 4 of the Wonder CAL which is available via the Facebook page (named as such). Again I have only used the cream and red yarn in thus pattern and will continue to do so.


It now measures 9″ from top to bottom and is beautifully textured. Its working up nicely and is certainly keeping my legs warm whilst I make it 🙂

Shoulder Bag

I started this bag for myself as I really liked the look of it but as I made it, I wasn’t feeling it that great. Its a wonderful pattern but I felt it wasn’t something I’d actually use. So I decided to finish it anyway and give it to my mum for her birthday as she said she wanted it whilst I was making it. Bonus. Haha




I used DK yarn so my bag came out smaller but I was using it as a stash buster too so that’s ok. It still came out at a decent size. The pattern is the ‘Moiré Shoulder Bag’ created by Charmed by Ewe.

Completed Minion Minecraft style blanket.

Its done! Its finally, finally done. This is a commission started a while back for my nephews birthday, which is today and I have just finished sewing the last row and then working a border around it.


It isn’t the best photo but I didn’t have any room to take a better one and I’m not tall enough either, so its taken with me balancing in the sofa arm, holding the camera out as far as possible hahaha. This beast measures 52″ x62.5″ and I just had to weigh it as it is fairly heavy. It weighs a good kilogramme.

I’ve used worsted weight Caron One Pound yarn and a 5.5mm hook. All dome in DC stitch except the border which is sc and 3hdc in each corner. There’s 120 squares in total and lots of sewing. I worked from a picture I found on the net, although altered the stitches used. It was chosen as it works up like a Minecraft style minion and that’s the two requirements wanted 🙂 happy days.
