FO Friday #5 Snork Maiden


 

Thought I’d share a picture of this lovely little snork maiden I made for my Number 1 son’s girlfriend, at his request.

She is about 6” tall and is crocheted in King Cole Snuggly, so she is very soft. She also likes to admire the garden and particularly likes primulas.

You can make your very own snork maiden by downloading this spiffing free pattern here: http://samigurumi.wordpress.com/2011/12/04/amigurumi-moomintroll-free-pattern-woo-yeah-free/

WIP Wednesday #4


 

A horse cushion. Yep, that’s what this weeks WIP is. Not my usual kind of territory really. Thought I’d try something new. I need a rug for the lounge to hide a nasty mark on the laminate floor, and I thought maybe making a latch hook rug would be a good way to use up some wool scraps and a big piece of sack cloth I aquired. Problem: I don’t know how to latch hook! So I bought this cushion kit in the Hobbycraft sale, purely so I could teach myself. I’m actually quite pleased with the way this is turning out, and it is good fun!

I’m still not sure I want this on my sofa when it’s finished though. I may put it up for sale, I haven’t decided yet. Any opinions?
