How did this start?
I decided at Christmas (2009) I was going to save up for, um, well I forget, now.
Anyway the best way for me to save at Christmas is to stay at home, no shopping or trips about.
I didn’t much want to get a bunch of books for 2-3 weeks.
So I got a couple of cones of very very fine wool off trademe for $20, picked out a VERY ambitious pattern and decided that this would keep me out of trouble.
Still for sale on trademe, I might add.
This is the utterly most ambitious thing I have ever done!
Hooks out and bank account relatively intact after the hols and some 4 months later.
A friend had been making some Jean Greenhowe knitted toys for fun and for sale. I have made some of these in the past but much prefer crochet to knitting.
But I thought I could maybe do a few bits and put them on Trademe, who knows…
Work had been a bit dead – no overtime, and so I needed some extra money.
I went out and got a few bright colours and did my ‘few bits’.
The crochet poo.
Ah, the covered condensed milk can!
This I thought was an owl. Then I realised it was a penguin!
This is an owl.
Wee blue elephant.
How about for the home….
A wee spice sack.
The crocheted cover for that air freshener thingy! A hit for sure?
Then came the Funky Retro Granny collection!
The hotty cover.
The granny bag.
I LOVE this bag!
