Filthy Feet

Well, I’m back from a great camping holiday with family & friends – filthy smiling faces, piles of washing, content kids – all great signs of a happy holiday. What the heck was I thinking when I said I would be updating the Made It from the inside of a forest in the middle of nowhere??? Actually, it was heavenly not having contact with the outside world for a while and seeing all kids enjoy the freedom of running around, playing & swimming without the usual nagging question “can I play on the i Pad/phone/laptop/TV…..?” Ahhhh, bliss! Here’s to a lots more of the “real stuff” this year

So, um, a few days late…here are the rest of this months fabulous entries…

FO Agents of Shield Scarf by Stitched ‘n Scaps

For those of you who have want to try double knitting, you MUST read Pia from Stitches ‘n Scraps ‘s brilliant post where she gives a tons of useful tips while making this AMAZING  FO Agents of Shield Scarf– the first of two being made for twins boys. (in case you had no idea what that was, I googled it and Agents of Shield  it’s a popular kids TV show in the US). The scarf is reversible with an insanely difficultly looking hex pattern which works a treat! No doubt there’ll be two very happy recipients

Yarnbomb Wishes by Nice Piece Of Work

Spreading her wonderful and unique type season cheer this year is the lovely Jill from Nice Piece of Work! This beautifully bright and happy Yarnbomb greeting was placed at the entrance of her apartment complex. Hmmmmm, I wonder if there was even one single resident who had no idea who this bomber was…..?!

Jonah’s Slippers Of Many Colours by Vu Chickens

From filthy feet to Melissa of Vu Chickens  two pairs of Happy Feet! I’m pretty sure you cannot get cosier slippers than these beautiful thrummed ones belonging to Mae and Jonah ….not only expertly knitted by Mom (with a little help from two very able children I might add), but loving made from home spun wool too. These are sensational and perfect for some extra sliding around the house!

Crochet Key Rings by Rainbow Junkie Corner

Finally, we get to see what Jane from Rainbow Junkie Corner  was working on in the run up towards Christmas. These fun and fabulous amigurumi figure  crochet key rings, each so well thought up, are beautifully made and incredibly cute.  Such a great gift idea, especially for those hard-to-buy for men!

My First Sweater by Sandra Hernandez

WOW, not only has Sandra from Sandra Hernandez Make got a great eye for colour (yellow &  grey being a favourite combo of mine, but I’ve never had the guts to wear them together), she must have the patience of an angel. Here is her first sweater, knitted with such an intricate design which is ALL HER OWN! WOW, I’m very much looking forward to seeing more….

Cushion Cover by Kake’s Crafts

Ripples! Who doesn’t love this pattern. The lovely Kayleigh of Kake’s Crafts‘s gorgeous ripply cushion cover came out beautifully! Again, the colour combo is stunning & very effective and the little heart buttons finish it off so well  – a perfect gift even if it took a while to make.

Teddy Bear by Empress 27

Ahhhhh, I love old-fashioned teddies and this hand-made teddy bear by Kaiserin of Empress 27 looks exactly like it should – even with the eyes not on yet hee hee. This little chap (and his friend, click on the pic for more about him) looked so fun to make…I easily can see how people get addicted!

And finally…..

  1. Super last minute, but I’ve just added my entry for this month! I’ve also just realised that I haven’t added my ‘winner’ badge onto my blog (mostly because I have no idea how to do it! – any tips?!)
    Loving all the wonderful creations this month – there are so many talented people out there! 🙂

    • Heehee, I’ve had a tummy bug for the past two days and saw your messages but was too sick to reply! So glad you are sorted!! By the way, just to let you know that your scarf is in the UK to be posted to you. The postal between SA and the UK is dodge this time of the year so I sent if home with my nephew who was visiting. So sorry about the delay!!!! xxxx
