Lot of things are in progress as usual in the handicraft corner. The bag of utilization, where I tie together yarn ends that are long enough to tie together, goes well and I think I will finish it soon.
I think I will start to crochet the handles next and a few laps after that so it will be strong hold in it. 
  Under the bag is a recycled mat that was crochet from old sheets that were not used anymore.
 One small amigurumi is also starting to take shape. The head is ready and then the body,  limbs and ears will follow.

Finally, I wanted to show a picture of a sewing magazine I bought the other day. To sew some clothes is therefore on the list. My experience is that the instructions in ottobre are good and easy to sew clothes  based on them.

Dog and hats

This little dog joined the group of amigurumi figure my aunt has few days ago.
 This pattern is from the Candy Magazine 1 and the dog is crocheted from the yarn Candy that is specially designed for the patterns (or the patterns for the yarn).
 So I decided to use rest yarn and knit a hat. The first one was striped from dark brown and gray Smart yarn from Sandnes yarn.
Then came a blue hat with a line that runs over the hat, also from Smart.

  And finally I finished a floral hat I started some time ago. The colors in it are dark gray and creamed. I drew the pattern from a embroidery pattern I found on Pinterset and changed it to fit for the knitting look.
I am writing the pattern for the first two hats, and when it´s ready I will post them on the blog.
