It might sound like a strange thing but after a long hard day of crocheting there is nothing I like better and a relaxing evening of crocheting.
By this I mean amigurumi is what I love, its my day job but there is a lot of thinking that goes along with it and creating the patterns and sometimes I like to do a bit of crochet That I don't have to think about so on an evening I can usually be found making hats and scarfs and headbands.
I was quite shocked just how many I made when I gattered them together for my last craft fair and so I thought it was about time I got some listed in my etsy shop
All these headbands are made to fit my sort of size head but they were tried on by everyone from todlers to gannys at the craft fair and they fit pretty much everyone. I raided my stach of vintage buttons again to decorate the flowers and they are all made from cosy chunky yarns to keep your ears warm at this chilly time of year.

When making omnipoms the first things I make are the arms which are fully jointed and the eyes. Making the arms is the only boring part of the process so I tend to make quite a few at a time to get it out of the way. I had made 4 sets of new arms when I found this ball of washed out denim coloured multi yarn in my stash and on a whim decided to make a couple of arms with it to see how it crocheted up. I liked the arms so much that I couldn't stop there and before long Jean was born.
I have to work at the old day job today but when I get home I'm going to continue my listing frenzy on etsy and Jean will be there looking for a new home along with some of my other amigurumis :)

I made meters and meters of Christmas bunting, lots of scarfs and headband to warm little ears, pincushions for lonely pins and hand embroidered tree ornaments.
For now I think I deserve a glass of wine and to put my feet up for the night (I give it 10 mins before my fingers start itching to get cracking crocheting again I'm hopeless) :D
