I was so excited to receive Pene's (from the lovely blog Scrap My Mid Life Crisis ) swap parcel that I was halfway through before remembering to take a photo! This was Laalaa's God Save the Queen Swap, and a cracking idea it was too.
Oo, lovely stuff!
Even more fab when I'd opened everything - Pene, you're a treasure! xxx
I managed to finish my latest freeform bag, much more grundgy colours than previous bags.
I also eventually finished the little duffel coat (thank the gods of crochet)!
I didn't enjoy making this at all and personally I think you can tell my heart wasn't in it, even though it was for Miss Peach Pudding. Miss PP's mummy requested it. It cost soooo much more than I thought it would and the Rowan Denim yarn was horrible to crochet as it kept separating into single threads.
I love the toggles I bought, however. They're Knit-Pro ones and have that lovely ripply woodiness of Knit-Pro needles and hooks.
I'm off to Scrumble Evening at A Good Yarn tomorrow night to get back into the swing of freeform madness and lovely colours. Yay!!!
