The March Made It – Oodles of O’Noodles

The fun-loving, quirky (with seemingly boundless energy too)  Jill from O’Noodles  has treated us to a selection of her fantastic makes into this months Made It challenge.  Firstly, I just have to share these two pic of Jill’s new photo book that she had made – what a stunning idea!!! It looks so professional and such a great item to have to showcase one’s portfolio. Awesomeness!

The FEB Made It – *WARNING* Content may inspire sensitive viewers

Happy Monday everyone – I hope you all had a wonderfully fun and relaxing weekend!

It was a busy one for me with lots on the go which I will post about later. In the meantime, here are two pics as a sneaky preview…I promise, there’s a good explanation

The Made It entries are coming in fast & furiously, so sit back and enjoy….

Next up are entries from long time Made It challenger, Jill from O’Noodles who magically produced not one but TWO stunning Afghans throws (and these were stash busters too!)


“Hundertwasser” Afghan by O’Noodles


“Happy Heart” Afghan by O’Noodles

The first one was inspired by the artist  Hundertwasser whose use of colour will leave you weak at the knees – all Jill’s hard work truly captures his bright and bold style . The second throw was inspired by a “Happy Heart” challenge and too has an “arty” look to it. Both amazingly beautiful and inspirational throws!!   Which is your favourite???


Wooohoooo FREE PATTERN!!!! Thank you  to Jackie from Knitting With Heart for not only entering her ADORABLE Sweetie♥ Knit♥Heart (ring and bracelet) into the Made It challenge but for sharing her pattern with us. (Click on the link of pic to download). I love them as pictured above over a pair of gloves, very chic!

Hellloooooo Pigtails! So happy to have you back, with 3 more sensational entries…

Ripple Scarf by Pigtails

Wowwee, what a colour fest and complete visual treat! I must say, the Patchwork blanket speaks to my very soul – the colours are delicious and the circle & squares have me utterly mesmerized. I adore her Indigo scarf with the beautiful bobble stitch, crocheted using Vinnis Serina, a soft silky bamboo – click on the post of the pattern and a link to an Invisible Double Knot. And staying with beautiful stitches, this Vintage Fan Ripple stitch is pure heaven – looking forward to seeing that throw too, Magda!

Looks like we’ll be saying Bon Voyage to the lovely Pigtails as she and her intrepid family leave SA for Qatar! THANKFULLY, the world is a WiFi village and we’ll have loads of fun keeping updated with new adventures and new crochet! 

Thanks for stopping by everyone, will be back soon with more!

Love Maryanne
