Hi, I thought I would let you all know what I have been up-to in the past couple of months. As many of you may already know I have given up Stampin' Up! I already miss it. I just didn't have the time to make a go of it as a business, I was having to create under pressure (due to the lack of time I had) and I was beginning to loose the joy of crafting. I knew it was the right time to stop.
I now have time to create other crafting projects, I am working on another crochet neck warmer for a Christmas present and I have nearly finished a huge star garland to decorate the house at Christmas. (I will be sharing the photos soon).
Yesterday I went to the pound shop looking for a few stocking fillers and came out with six balls of crocheting yarn. It is great quality and they have some wonderful colours. They come in 100g balls and the recommenced hook size is 10mm I am using the pink coloured yarn to make the neck warmer. I think it will take all three balls to make - not bad though a handmade scarf for £3.00. I will just need to find the buttons to fix to the finished scarf. If you are interested in making the scarf you can find my original post here http://craftyred.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/lattice-crochet-neck-warmer.html
