Doodling with yarn

Sat at HandPicked Hall yesterday I started doodling with yarn, like you do, and found myself crocheting a flower garland (or is it bunting?).  Either way, it helped to keep me occupied and also seemed a good way to use up this odd bits of yarn.  I thought you might like to have a go yourselves so I’m sharing it by posting the pattern for free download on our website.  I’d love to see any photos so please share them on our blog, Facebook or Twitter accounts.crochet flower garland 001

Is it Spring yet?

Well, the weather here in Skipton, North Yorkshire had been very undecided as has my wardrobe!  Not quite ready to pack away the winter woollies yet.

With Spring in mind I designed and made this crocheted flower cushion cover earlier in the year and took it to Handpicked Hall where it had so many people asking if I had a pattern for it that, well, I had to make a pattern for it!  If you would like to make one yourself, you can get the pattern for £1.99 from our website and if you do make one we would love to see a picture either here on our blog or on our Facebook page 

Happy crocheting

Going Slightly Sheepish

We have evolved into Slightly Sheepish having dipped our toes into the world of the VW Campervan with SnuginaDub and discovered along the way that many of its devoted followers, like ourselves, love making things.  We came up with some little felt craft kits to make Dangly Dubs and some knitting patterns to make VW inspired woolly creations.  We have also found cross stitch kits and knitting kits.

We also found some gorgeous knitting needles and crochet hooks, not to mention wonderful yarn from the lovely people at Thomas B. Ramsden who make Wendy and Twilleys of Stamford Knitting Yarn. Knit a VW Campervan Egg Cosy
