Let's Get Cosy!!

Hi All,
Hope you are keeping warm and safe during the horrible weather - having said that, the snow has as good as gone where I am and we have had some glorious sun today but it has still been very chilly.

No card still, but I have been busy making some mug cosies and I wanted to show you this little sweetie.....

He has been crocheted in double knitting and fits my favourite mug perfectly!!  I have made a couple more in different colours but still need to sew them together.  What do you think.....cute or what.

If you are interested, he will be available for sale in The Crafty Duo shop over on Facebook shortly along with a couple of other designs.

Thanks again for looking and for all your lovely comments.

I've Been Busy!!

Good Morning All,
Well, my card making mojo may still be on an very extended Christmas break but I have not been idle.  All this rotten snow that we have been having prompted me to get out my knitting needles and knit up some warm items for when I am walking the dog.  It's been years since I have knitted anything to wear and I have really enjoyed it :0)

I started with a simple straight cowl . The yarn used is Aran so it knitted up really quickly. This is mine and the one below is taken from the actual pattern to show you what it looks like on.

Having had such fun making this one, I decided to get a bit more adventurous and made this Cowboy Cowl. Again knitted in Aran and again, great fun.

This is mine......

and this is taken from the pattern.  I hope you like.

Thanks so much for looking. I am really hoping my card making mojo returns soon so that I shall have something else to show you.

Mr Mojo .........where are you????

Hi All,
Thought I had better write a quick post to let you all know that I am still around but am having a really hard time finding my mojo at the moment.  He seems to have taken an extended Christmas break!!!  As soon as he returns, I shall make some cards and start posting again.  

Hope you are all keeping warm during this horrible cold weather.
