A Worry of Wizards

G'Morning all.

Thank you all for your kind comments.  It's really nice to be blogging again. I'm still a bit slow commenting but I'm struggling a bit healthwise at the mo.  No idea if it's the condition or the treatment...but we carry on regardless.

I've crocheted a little top for the Mayo/Roscommon Hopice Baby Event.  It was supposed to have sleeves. Then I lost the hook and forgot what size I'd used.  I do this all the time.  A sensible person would right down what hook they were using, on the pattern wouldn't then?  Maybe next time.

It's not a very good photo, it's actually a prettier pastel sage green and looks much nicer in real life.

The new Stitchers Anon Cross Stitch Design's FREE Halloween SAL is now ready for release.  The overlay is shown on Chromatic Alchemy Lazurite.  The colours for the final complete design will be based on this fabric and one other.  

The second fabric is by Fabric Flair, Fairy Dust Cloud Dark Blue, in this case, purchased from Lakeside Needlecraft.

I'm not sure Witchity Poo is convinced wizards are the way to go, judging by how she chose the title.

 A Worry of Wizards!

A Worry of Wizards part one is available HERE
While the design is given freely, I am accepting donations to my palliative care team which a service that is 50 percent charity funded.  You can find out more about what they do and how to donate (if you wish) here:

    Sweet sleeveless jacket, I like it that way.

  6. It's like a littel angel top that I've been knitting for our local neo natal unit so don't worry about the sleeves. Hope you're feeling better soon. Take care.
