Eaten by a shark!

I’m wondering what I should write about – sat here, I thought I was going to show you a new cloche hat I’d made, or a baby hat.

Or I could have shown you how I covered my crochet hooks, or how pinterest made me go to Ikea (well I sent my husband), to get a craft trolley that I’ve just sorted out.

Or I could do something not craft related at all – a trip on a steam train, kite flying, or my garden……..

But crochet won!

I made my daughter a mermaid tail to cheer her up when she was poorly.  Then my son piped up that he wanted something too – “but not a mermaid tail  as that’s for girls.”.

So thinking cap was put on and I thought, well, If I was a 7 year old boy – what would I want?

Its the same granny stripe pattern that I’ve used for the Mermaid – and I promise it will come soon.  But the additions are different!


Now for the big reveal


Not bad for a weeks crocheting – and 2 happy kids = a happy me!

The pattern for the shark can be found here on my blog.
