Saving the world, one crafty thing at a time



Goddess Shawl

This has been in the works for some time now and i was making it for myself but then I decided to gift it to my mum for Christmas so I thought it was high time to finish it. I have been working in it, adding bits every so often and yesterday I completed it.

I had not blocked it at the time of the photos but have since fine this. The original pattern calls for 58×124.5cm on average and after blocking I came out with 58x134cm.

Yarn used is James C. Brett Moonlight Sonata (shade SM8). It goes from almost white, through cream, mocha and brown and back again. To me, this yarn is fine and can quite easily be used with 3mm and below hooks even though the label calls it double knit.

Kitty Cat Large Tote Bag

Started my next commission which is, clearly a large tote. This is a pattern by The Perfect Knot. Its working up fairly quick, even if I’ve only just started I expect it to be finished soon. I’ve also decided to line the bag just before o are the while thing together to avoid things slipping through the holes.


I’ve changed the colour scheme to include dark purple, black and light purple instead of the suggested bright pink, light pink and white. Just completing number 6 (showing 5) out of 48, with only two more being multicoloured, so super quick it should be from that point.

I may also customise it slightly as the cat applique is not wanted so may add something special instead of. Just for that extra something.
