Hookery on holiday (1)

If you remember I asked you all to take some photos of your hookery on holiday.  Here are the first few results.  Many more required .....  Prizes available :-)

Spot the nine crocheted roses intended for the teapot cosy.
Work in progress times two projects.

My aunt's blanket, originally for her birthday at the start of June but it took a little longer ....
Finished with some edging this is intended as a present for a new baby.

Flying the flag for sandcastles all over the world!

I hope this isn't Mags' holiday cottage!

All will be revealed in future posts as to what the article is ....


And after all that I think we need a cup of tea ....
Pity that the picnic had to be in the car, but then we do have Northern Irish summers .....

Hookery, dickery, Dock

Back at the Dock tonight for Hookery, and thank you everyone for a totally relaxed and relaxing, lovely time! Lynne is still rippling.
Catherine is still cabling.
Lorna came tonight- so super to see you, especially modelling our first example of a garment. Hard act to follow!
Discussing garment and other things yarn.
Lynne's progress through the afghan project. Fabulous colours.
Niqi's latest output from the set text, two projects in picture!
One of Lorna's current blankets.
Mags' latest project, as unfinished as the rest, but still brimming with optimism!
Birthday cake, no, torte- we stand/sit corrected, Niq!
Happy Birthday, Anne! For you (and for the Olympics) we rang our merry bells!

Sorry, this is for me!

Can't print here in the country pad, so this my link for attempting to knit some socks! I will then endeavour to take my Heather Boss photo!

Happy holiday snaps

Well ladies, I hope you're all enjoying this lovely summer weather!  At least it has been dry and sunny for two days now ....  What more could we ask for in Northern Ireland?

Anyway, to my challenge.  Because hookery is on hold for a few weeks and we won't have new pics to post I thought of something a little bit different.  I'd like you all to take pictures of you at work (crocheting) somewhere unusual or of your crochet in some unusual places while you are on holiday.   At the beach, on the boat, on a surfboard, in the forest, at the park, on a picnic, at a seaside cafe, at a birthday party ..... You get the idea?  Good, so go enjoy.

Looking forward to seeing the results.  A prize for the most unusual 'shot'.

Rosie posie teapot cover

Well, here it is, the finished tea cosy.  It appears to do the job very nicely.  Now for the cafetiere cover in the same colours .....
