Blanket Making and Fingerless Gloves

Well as it has turned out I am not doing the Liverpool fair I thought I’d b etter get my items on my Folksy shop!  Gosh it’s a lot of work!  First trying to set up a bright space for taking  the pics, editing them. then writing all the product details up, measuring the items etc!  I’ve only managed to add a couple of new one so far!  It’s not doing my tennis crochet elbow any good either 🙁  I couldn’t mange to write a post last week ‘cos my arm is so sore, but on the bright side, my sciatica has finally gone 🙂

I did manage to make myself another pair of fingerless gloves/arm warmers!

Fingerless Gloves / Arm Warmers

 

I am hoping my arm improves soon though as I was so taken with the warm autumnal colours in the Attic 24 Cosy Blanket I ordered the pack!   It arrived in a couple of days in a lovely organza bag and I can’t wait to start it.  As yet I am not sure whether to make the actual Cosy Blanket which Lucy is doing as a CAL from next week, or whether to finally make the ‘As we go stripey blanket’ by Not Your Average Crochet which lots of people were making a few months ago?

  1. I love the colours that you have chosen for you fingerless gloves. I hope your arm is better soon so you can make lots more!

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets a sore arm! I suppose the only thing for it is to give it some rest from crochet 🙁 I too saw Attic 24’s blanket kits, looking forward to seeing how yours turns out, whichever one you decide on.

  3. Love the colours on those fingerless gloves. Glad you are feeling a bit better.

    Have a great crafty week, Alison x

  4. STORY-OF-MY-LIFE! – oh, wait. I have NO “Life”…
    I’ve got my first craft show of the Season THIS Saturday and have no less than a dozen hats or so that NEED to be photographed! As well as 3 blankets, that I have NO “room” to spread out properly to do them either! [argh!] — And, then there are the umpteen-billion OTHER things that have to be “prepped”…
    For Those who’ve never “done” Fairs, *doing* the actual Event, is just the tip of the iceberg! It’s NOT easy when you’re OLD-ish, arthritic, have TONS of STUFF, a small vehicle and, working ALONE. — Needless to say, a touch of “craziness” helps!
    ;-D

  5. Your fingerless gloves turned out lovely. I am envious of your new yarn pak and blanket pattern from Attic24! Right now I’m make the Coast Ripple Blanket from Attic24 and I love the yarn and colors. Have a great week!

  6. Oh what gorgeous colours in your handwarmers, they’ll definitely keep you snug this winter! And how snuggly are the cosy cottage colours, I’m still deliberating over those or the coastal pack, they both look so lovely!

  7. I share your pain – both literally and figuratively! I am trying to get all my new hair accessories and brooches ready for my Etsy shop but its tough when things hurt and when they take so long. I hope you’re less achey soon
