October projects

 

October passed so quickly. I came back from Poland. I reopen my Etsy shop . I had to reorganized our London flat again – my 14 months son is curious fast-moving toddler. He demands lots of attention. I was really busy, yet I found some time for knitting and macrame. Mornings, during my child’s nap and evenings, when Max is already in bed is the only time when I can craft. I wish evenings are longer.

Wall hanging.

My favourite project is macrame+weaving wall hanging. This wall decor isn’t very big but I really like it. I call it “Greece”. Reminds me of Parthenon and suits of  Greek  Presidential Guard (Evzones).

Christmas decorations

In October I was also working on some Christmas decorations. I made few macrame Christmas trees. They are really cute. Easy to knot. Some of them I decorate with beads. They perfect as a little Christmas gift. They will look lovely on Christmas tree or in the window as a Christmas decoration.

Last year my house was decorated with crocheted snowflakes, this year I will add some macrame Christmas trees.

I also made set of crochet Christmas stocking. I bought “The Winter Crochet Book” magazine with many lovely winter patterns. I have to say crocheting that tiny items is not my thing. But I like the result.

Knitted shrug

I started this shrug…I think in the end of August. I was working with lovely wool blend yarn.

version with sleeves

I made large rectangle, seamed sides, knitted sleeves and ending. And I didn’t like it.

I decide to undo sleeves. I wish I made just regular cardigan from that yarn. Or shawl.

I will probably still do some modification to that shrug.
