Finishing projects and a curious cat

I’ve had a lovely Sunday. Jon (my husband) and I began the day with a nice walk along a local cycle track appreciating the autumnal beauty.

When we returned home, I put the finishing touches to a couple of neck warmers I’d made (using super chunky yarn, triple crocheted) and blocked. 

I sewed on buttons. The space between the triple crochets (US terms) formed the button holes but as these were quite loose so I added a couple of stitches to tighten them. This worked really well and made the right triple crochets easier to locate.

While I was outside taking photos, My cat Fiyero decided to come and see what I was up to… he’s such a poser.

Wrapping up warm.

It’s definitely feeling colder now in the UK and Winter is on it’s way.

Currently, I’m wearing a neck warmer that I designed myself and wristers that I made as part of one of the crochet crowd challenges.


The wristers follow a nice easy (free) pattern that only takes a few hours to work.



I edged both the neck warmer in a wool, that added a subtle splash of color, and really liked the results.
