Spring Inspiration!

Hello everyone! Inspired by Carol over at Wee Cute Treasures blog I have a new found lease of creativity.  Like her I am adamant that I am not buying any more craft supplies until I have used up a lot of what's lying around.  I think I've overdosed on craft products in the past and this just leads to me feeling weighed down by the amount of things I want to do.  So, with it being the start of Spring, time for a spring clean and let's bust that stash!

First to go is my hotch-potch basket of wool.  I have now imposed a ban on the acquisition of wool, unless I have a specific project for it!  So here's what's finished so far...

I have made a crocheted scarf,
Made from King Cole Riot DK

and a knitted cowl,
Made from Sirdar Snuggly 3ply

and a beret with cowl to match,
Made from Patons ColourWorks Aran

and a crocheted shawl (still needs blocking a bit more to get to the size I want),
Made from Patons 4ply cotton

And - wait for it - even some miniatures! I know!! It's been months and months since anything miniature was tackled!

There's a knitted blanket for a double bed and a knitted blanket and pillow for a baby, though photos for these are a bit poor :(

Whew! That's enough for now.

There are still some half-finished things lying around so I'll crack on with those and be back soon with the photos.

Enjoy your weekend xxx
