This week I've been knitting and crocheting like mad. I've finished two projects, one is for our August's Crochet Club project - a seasonal bowl of strawberries! For this project I'll be giving a step by step guide on how to bead and make this lovely strawberries. The pattern comes with lots of photographs and charts with step by step instructions.
I've also just finished a project for my column in Homemaker magazine. It's for the September issue (out in August) and the theme is Back to School. For this I've made a colouring pencil knitted roll. I really love this. I've made it using a Swiss Check stitch and found some really pretty fabric and made little pockets where you can keep colouring pencils.
I use colouring pencils a lot when I'm designing and I'm definitely keeping them in here from now on. They usually get left all over the house and I'm always losing them - not anymore!
(excuse bad quality photos - have sent this off to Homemaker now for their photography and my photos are not too good)
