February in Crochet

One of the fun projects I just have to share with you from this month are the Yarn Dolls (or woolly dolls) that I made with Little Girl and her friend during a sleepover. It kept them amused for ages and I loved how they spent ages deciding on all the tiny details like little cap sleeves for the t-shirts and enjoyed all the snippety-snips of the wool. Once the scissors were finally retired, and everything was tidied up we had a little photo-call. And so I would like to introduce you to Daffodil and Petal! Aren’t they colourful and fun?! If you’re interested in making your own woolly doll then I found a similar tutorial here.

It has to be said that overall, February has been a bit of a drab month really! And I’ve now realised that I’ve taken very little pictures of the sky. Naughty me, I’ll have to work on that next month!

The month started off well – see that clear blue line at the bottom of the picture? That’s the 1st – but since then it’s been fairly overcast. And obviously, we had all that lovely snow.

In the last week or so though it’s definitely got a lot more spring-like which is definitely a good thing in my book!  

The blanket is coming along very nicely so far and I really enjoy my post-lunch hooky ritual!!!!!
