Crafty stuff


I really do love winter for so many reasons. One of them is that it is easier to do craft work like knitting and crocheting. So this is my latest mitten like garment. I am making the same thing for a work colleague. And I am currently busy knitting a scarf.

Note to self: Do not ever become a hand model.

lovely. do you have the pattern to share?

Thanks Saal.

Fathima. No sorry, I did not follow a pattern. I looked at someone else's and that was it. You just measure the widest part of your hand (the knuckles) and crochet a rectangular piece. Bring the two short ends together and sew it closed, leaving a space for your thumb. Then you crochet the flower and sew that on. I hope that makes sense? G'luck!

WOW, You made that? SO cool and pretty! After I knitted that scarf last year, I decided that maybe my perfectionism is better suited for the kitchen. I like needed therapy when I was done. The art of knitting is soothing to some, and traumatising to others lol ;)

Thanks Azra! You should have seen my anger levels when I realised my knitting needles have gone AWOL! heheh
