Pretty Spring Bunting by Little Poppits

I ADORE bunting, who doesn’t, so I completely “get” Mommy Poppits’s addiction to make more and more, especially that I have only only just discovered the mystical joys of Granny square (more of that later). Check out her post here. If you haven’t already visited the happy home of  Little Poppits, you MUST, especially if you have children..or chickens! There are so many wonderful things to see, and do, and make and and and ♥

Rednose Day Crochet Coasters by Knitpurl83

I know from reading loads of other blog posts that Rednose Day is big in the UK so Laura from Knitpurl83 got on board with some friends and “created for charity”!! These gorgeous crochet coasters were made in the charity colours and check out her divine little cupcake too! All this, coming from someone who hasn’t been crocheting very long either – read her funny post Just call me captain hook – I think you will find that we all agree on this one!!! Well done Laura, such a wonderful thing to do ♥

“Tunisian wire bracelet” by knitrun4sanity

Before we officially open the floor for voting, have a look at this beautiful bracelet by Knitrun4sanity. Every time I look at her work my jaw drops just a little lower – I mean, just look at it, crocheting with certain yarns can be tricky but this is WIRE! Also, this is not just crochet, its TUNISIAN crochet (and that’s all without the delicate bead work…..) Simply beautiful.
