Made in 2014

This year has been my first full year of blogging and so, like lots of other bloggers at this time of year, I thought I'd take a look back at my 'Made in 2014'.

On the crochet front there were three blankets - one for Christmas time, one for our bedroom and one for Alice to take to uni.

Two cushions - one for the sofa and one for pins

Two mandalas - one for Yarndale and one that's being used as a bowl cover

And some facecloths and a Nordic shawl.

I also got my sewing machine out, which had been redundant for quite some time, and made my first ever skirt as part of Lazy Daisy Jones' sew-along.

It fitted and, more importantly, I really enjoyed the experience, so brimming with confidence the girls and me set about making some pyjamas.

As they seemed to be a hit I made some more:  some Christmas ones for me and the girls and some chilli (what else?) man pyjamas for Mr T (apologies for terrible photo quality).

I think I'm probably pyjama'd out now, something different next time.

There seems to have been a lot of crochet over the past year so I've temporarily swapped my hook for some needles to make a man scarf using this really easy peasy pattern here.  Once that's done I've got another crochet blanket WIP started, something a little different from my others with a more lacey texture, so plenty to start 2015 with.  

This week I must catch up on some blog reading, I haven't been around blogland much lately, so see you at yours later! 

Happy New Year and I hope all is well out there ...
