In which I am overcome …..
… with excitement!! Yes, I now have my brand new copy of Lesley Stanfield’s new book, 75 Birds and Butterflies to Knit & Crochet. I have been looking forward to this book for ages.
as I am a great fan of her earlier publication, 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet, having successfully attempted flowers, carrots and radishes(!) from this book.
There are some great projects in this new book …
Love the tea cosy ….
and the fungi … she has nice red dotty ones too.
It’s also great that many more of her projects are for knitters as I am quite a good knitter – having learned at a very early age – but not so expert with the crochet hook, a craft which I only attempted for the first time last year.
My favourites are the birds – you saw the little blue tit at the top of this post .. and here is a beautiful Christmas dove ….
Lots here to keep me happily occupied and out of mischief for ages!! And as the projects are all quite small they’ll be good for using up all those odds and ends too. Just off to find some yarn …… see you later!
