one bird all finished

Hope you've had a nice Christmas, with this in mind, it is not a turkey.I have made a vintage curtain for the kitchen/back door window, which features a peacock. This style is called filet and it made up of open en closed squares, just follow the patron. Hope you like it, it took me quite a while but i am glad it is finished now.
Have a great new years eve and a Blessed 2012, Madelon

peas in a pod

Sinterklaas is a dutch tradition where we get gift, much like santa at christmas in other countries, it is celebrated on the 5th of december, and this year i recieved a nice crochet book with lots of nice ideas. My sister asked me to make her this one so i did :-)

this is the picture from the book, which is called Amigurumi Two ! Toys for me and you and the Baby too, writen by Ana Paula Rimoli

this is the view for the front

view from the top

and now all three peas in their pod, they look really cosy don't they, i hope my sister likes it
that is it for now, hope to be back soon, madelon

more poncho's

I already showed you the poncho i made for my daugther, with flowers now i am showing you a few more

 I made this one for a daughter of a friend, as requested with pinks and purples
and this one i made with all the colours i had in my yarnbasket, and i used beads for the edge, and made a nice flower to go on the front, so you can tell the difference between front and back, i found this patron on the garnstudio website.

baby booties

this picture could be better, but with the light inside the house not so good due to the weather outside it will have to do, i made these booties using a patron that i found in the magazine Crochet Today.

winter hats

i made these two winter hats using patrons of the website, the black/grey/white one is patron number 126-21 and the red one is patron number 103-24, i put the red one on my head so you can see what the shape looks like, because it doesn't look like anything lying flat.

Innocent smoothies had a great idea to raise money to give elderly and lonely people a nice Christmas. They asked members of the public to knit hats they put on top of their smoothies, and for every smoothy with hat they sell they will donate money to the good cause, so i made 7 hats you can see in the photo
