How time flies

I seem to have blinked and now we are almost 2 weeks into the new year.  I’d wanted to do a kind of round up post of the year, but somehow it just hasn’t happened.

I’ve been super busy, doing DIY, crocheting and craft in the past couple of weeks.

The chevron blanket went down very well, but then the blue one piped up that he was the only one without a blanket now. 

So I’m making him a corner to corner one. I’m cheating with variagated yarn, and using a nice dark grey to create a border as I go.  It’s working up really quickly too which is good (but this has been on hold for the past 2 weeks- other deadlines to hit have taken a priority!).

   
    
 
I made myself a new keyring – I wanted something girly – I think I succeeded?

  
Then I’ve been asked to make some dog coats too.  My friend walks these two dogs and they were getting cold. I’ll write the pattern up when I get a minute hopefully.

   
 
And then there was the boxer with the poorly paw, she needed something to stop her licking it – cue a crochet boot! 

Other craft bits, well take a look……

   
    
    
 
A short recap of just the crafts (and it’s not all of them!) done in a couple of weeks, when I look back at the photos I’ve taken, we’ve been so busy that it seems like a lot longer than 2 weeks of the new year!  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not? 

Oh – and I treated myself, no idea when I’ll find the time to make them though at this rate!
