Busy Little Bee

This month it has been busy, busy, busy at Cosmic Creations. One of my fellow teachers when on maternity leave to have her first child and I thought she deserved a gift just for her, so a nice snuggly shawl was in order.

Here it is pegged out to dry and drop - and yes, that is a fur-kid 'helping'. They tend to make an appearance in quiet a few of the photos.

The pattern is from Lally Lou Lou and you can check it out here. It's a really easy pattern and the instructions are very clear. I added a scalloped edge to make a bit of a ruffle/frill.

The next we have a yummy cupcake! Not for eating though, it's a pincushion for a swap on Ravelry.

Again, another wonderful FREE pattern this time from Bitter Sweet. Although it is in US crochet terms, all you have to do is remember that a SC = a double crochet (UK/Aust). A very easy pattern that took less than an hour to make and that included stuffing it! To add the cherry on top I made a single bobble and sewed it on.

For Leah, a wash cloth for another Ravelry swap - Cloth and Soap Swap.

A simple square using 3.5mm hook and double strand 4ply cotton. Super easy and super quick, completed in a weekend. The pattern is from the Leisure Arts Big Book of Dishcloths.

And the final project completed is a Damson - actually it was finished months ago but I forgot where I put it! Found it though, sewed in the ends and here it is pinned out for blocking.

Well that's all the completed projects, next instalment will be the yarn that I dyed too!
