Getting ready for Easter

This Easter I will be selling these cute little egg cozies! Perfect size for Cadbury’s cream eggs.

After being overwhelmed with the amount of owl hat orders this time I have made a set amount which will go on sale closer to Easter.

Here is a sneaky peak..

A sneaky peak of Easter!

I have finally (!) finished all the owl hats.. I had quite a few to make as they were pretty popular on my facebook page (under the same name: Holly’s Creative Crafts)

So onto the next thing.. Easter!! I do know that Mother’s Day is first but as this will be my first year being a Mummy I want to spend it just being a Mummy and not worrying about any crafty orders. So Easter it is!!

I’ve had a few ideas but finally settled on one…here is a sneaky peak..

I would love to get a few more followers really…then perhaps I will do a giveaway. I feel like I am talking to myself a lot on here! Don’t be shy…say hello :o)

Owl hats!

As a bit of a side project to my main knitting project I have been making lots of owl hats for people. They have been more popular than i thought they would!

Any guesses as to what it is yet?! Some might recognise the pattern perhaps..

A Bit of Knitting!

I’ve not posted for a while but i have good reasons!! I have been very determined to finish off a knitted jumper for my little Harry.

I picked this pattern from ravelry as it was meant to be dead easy and knitted in one piece in garter stitch which is perfect for a knitter like me (i’m more of a crochet person…the using two needles thing still throws me!)

So being the easy jumper that it was, naturally meant that other things had to go wrong like running out of wool and then said wool  being discontinued and then trying to find matching wool which didn’t really work so then having to find a way to pass it off as “its meant to look like this…honest.” *breathe…*

So yes.. The easy jumper in all its glory is here:

See what i did with the fake stitching down the side..it marks the colour change in the wool and sort of makes it into “yes i was meant to do that.” At least that was the idea.

Its gone into my “it will do” pile and i guess the little mouse makes it look cute and my little bear WILL be wearing it tomorrow just to say he got some use out of it!!

I can’t wait to share my next project with you whih i was meant to start 6 months ago.. Slowly working my way through my “things to make” list!
