Elf Hat

10 Nov


Elf hat made for a friend of mine who’s a storyteller. To go with last year’s pixie boots! This pattern is by Kirstie McLeod, and I got it off Ravelry. Aran wool, knitted on 5mm needles in the round.

More presents -a pair of elf boots. Really simple pattern, knitted in chunky wool on 5mm needles. Slip stitch mosaic pattern which makes them nice and warm. Turned up toe is produced by whip stitching the seam and pulling tight. These are for women’s size 5-7, and started off with 43 stitches. They took about 4 evenings (7-9), but I am not the world’s fastest knitter.

Crocheted yarn pot – for putting your yarn in when knitting or crocheting to stop it getting dirty or being played with by cats! This is a larger version than my previous one, and is my own pattern. You can thread the yarn out through the top (centre of the flower) or through a hole in one of the ends. This is made from a chunky acrylic yarn so that it’s washable and doesn’t felt. It’s a present for a friend who has a new kitten.

Flower shaped fimo pendant, and fimo buttons, made at a button making workshop led by the wonderful Sally of Boafrosh. Such good fun making these. But now I have to knit something or sew something for the buttons to go on to!
