My first crochet project!!

Look!! A crochet project!! This and granny squares is the only thing I've ever managed to crochet. But I managed these without the help of youtube, though I did use a crochet how-to book for the stitch definitions :) (thanks Sarah!). I've made them into decorations for a Christmas tree, and I plan on making more for our tree and my mum's tree :) They're so cute, I love them! 
The yarn is left overs from my socks, and the pattern is a free one found here. My Ravelry project page is here.
I was also in the mood for some mindless knitting today. The best kind of mindless knitting is the useful kind. So I knitted this:
A wash cloth! I'm really bad at bothering to take my make-up off at the end of the day, so hopefully having a nice wash cloth will encourage me to take it off :)
The yarn is Wendy's dishcloth cotton, and the pattern is another free one found here. My Ravelry project page is here :)

p.s. has anyone put their Christmas tree up yet? We're planning on putting it up on Thursday, I can't wait! :) 


  1. Are those love hearts from the Meet Me At Mike's blog? I was thinking of making a few of those for our tree this year. Our tree is red and white themed. Yours are adorable!

  2. Thanks :) They're from the Sarahndipities blog :) I'll have to check Meet Me at Mike's blog out!
    Our is red and gold :) I can't wait to decorate it!

  3. Glad you found the book useful, it's the one that got me going.

    I love crochet hearts, they can become quite addictive!!

    Don't you just love Ravelry?

    Just catching up on a stack of posts I've missed!!

  4. It's been really helpful! :) Once I got the hang of it, I made the second one in about half an hour! Pretty quick to say I'm only just learning :)
    And yes, Ravelry is the most amazing thing to ever happen to my knitting/crochet skills :)
