Playing with fabric and yarn

Mixing it up here with some crochet, knitting and sewing - I think I have found my happy space this winter.

Friday I had an appointment in the city so I took public transport and of course a nice easy project - started another hat, I worked on it some more Saturday at my knitting group but I had to leave early to go to a family function.

So today's first priority was to complete this little number - I am very happy with the way this one turned out. The yarn is an old Bendigo Woollen Mills variety called Monet which is a mix of mohair and some synthetics the colours are pinks, blues, greens and browns.

Very warm and cozy.

I'm joining in the Pyjama Party again this week and I did complete this in my PJ's this morning.

The project which Lucky was checking out in the last post is another mittens and collar set. This yarn is super soft and light another mohair mix - this time mohair, wool and soya fibres from Spotlight - Moda Vera Boutique in multiple shades of red/pink/purple which makes for a unique set.

Seriously little bits of fabric for my sewing this week -really wanted to use these pieces left from a project which I completed last year.

Lots of strips became another gadget pouch - just needs a button and it will be done.

Oh yeah - more little strips of fabric ready for some action in the sewing room this coming week.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and got to play in the sunshine just a little bit.

Oh wow Tracey you have been busy. I thought about doing something late this afternoon, but it just seemed too hard, that's the trouble with too much socialising.
I absolutely love the colours in your hat, and the mittens and collar have such a beautifully rich glow of colour, gorgeous.

Love the colour and look of the mittens. It keeps it interesting to mix it up - at least that's what I tell myself lol.

I love finding creative uses for scraps. I have bins and baskets full of them. Maybe I should make up Miss P a gadget pouch....

You're completely rocking the knitting arent you! Happy spot indeed!

Great way to use up those scraps.
Love all your warm and woolly creations. Our cooler weather certainly inspires knitting.

I love your gadget pouch! Your woolly finishes will be much needed with this wild weather we are having, wish I didn't have to go to work today, would be a good day to stay home and play with some fabric!!
