One More to Go!

Well it's been quite a week, it's that time of year when everything seems to accelerate and you don't seem to have the time to fit everything in.  It was my Birthday last Friday and that took me away from my crocheting/knitting in a very nice way of course while family and friends came to celebrate with me.

I'm also having to work extra shifts at work because my colleague is on holiday however I have still managed to make set number three....

This time made in crochet, I chose this pattern because I have used it before and I could remember how quickly it worked up and how easy it was. You can find the pattern here.

The mittens are knitted and I used Marianna's pattern here

I love crochet because it's fast but I prefer the finish of knitted hats and mittens, they stretch and give a nice cosy fit.

Only one more week to go before I need to get these sent to knit for nowt and I still have one more girly set to make and then I will have made two of each.

I doesn't end there either because knit for nowt has sent out yet another appeal they are asking for cardigans or jumpers for little girls, if possible in time for Christmas but because my box is going off at the end of next week I would have to make something before then, so do you think it's possible for me to make..
one hat
one pair of mittens
one scarf
one cardigan
before next Thursday? of course thats on top of going to work and the other million things that need doing Christmas is coming after all.  

I will try!!:)
