Another Crocheted Snowflake Reindeer

  

  

This little one has crocheted snowflakes sewn down with some beads, stars and french knots.  The beads are clear and shiny, quite difficult to photograph.  I remembered to take a photo of the body before putting it together.

To Block or Not to Block

  

Blocking is washing or just dampening a knitted or crochet item then pinning out to its correct shape, then letting it dry before moving.  Large or small items can be blocked.  These little snowflakes definitely needed blocking.  In the second photo the snowflake on the left is before blocking, the one on the right after blocking.

On The Desk



I currently have three projects on the go:  I want to make more snowflakes, a crocheted reindeer has been started, and a jumper for me with wool that has been here for years.  I think I am struggling to focus.

Crocheted Snowflake

    

I bought this snowflake book quite a while ago and tried making them but failed   My crochet skills are coming along, I was able to easily follow the instructions and I made a snowflake, yay.

Another Sheepish Reindeer

  

I made another reindeer with sheep, this time with green grass.  The sheep stand out a little more.

Reindeer with Snowmen

  

I finished these two last night, well I thought I did, realised when I started this post that I haven't made scarves for the reindeer.  I wasn't going to put noses on the snowmen, but they look like they need something.

Off the Perch

  

Something has been going on in the craft room while I am not here.  I keep finding Jimmy the Budgie like this, lying on the table below the computer where all the birds are perched.  I'm thinking the red bird is looking a little guilty.

In The Craft Room



I have a bit of a collection going of wooden reels or bobbins.  Some have yarn and thread wound on.

Little Snowy House Reindeer

  

  

Finished the two little reindeer.  They are the same but different to the first larger one, colours are different.  And here they are with their big friend.
