May Makes

May was the wettest month on record here in the UK so it would seem that I had much making time. Well I did make a few things which I wanted to share with you. I crocheted this rainbow wall hanging which I now have hanging in my sewing room. I found the pattern on this blog and knew I had to make one. I used some cotton yarn from my stash in these colours by Scheepjes Catona.

Carrying on with the crochet theme of corner to corner stitch I also crocheted a baby blanket. This will be gifted to a friend soon when she has her baby boy.

The yarn I used was Stylecraft special DK which is my go to yarn for blanket making. It is available in so many colours and being acrylic it is both practical and economical. 

The pattern I used was from Inside Crochet magazine issue 83 which I had purchased some time ago. I am trying to use more patterns from books and magazines that I have previously purchased so this baby blanket pattern was just perfect.

I also had a small knitting project on the go and I made myself some shortie socks. These knit up really quickly and are perfect for summer.

I also did a little bit of dressmaking and make myself a couple of t-shirts using this pattern. I used some bright yellow cotton jersey from my stash and I made version C.

Here I am wearing the 3/4 sleeve length version and I also made a 2nd short sleeved version. 

I think with all the rain that we had in May I was clearly needing some sunshine with my first and last makes! I will come back later this month and show you what I have been making in June. 

Thanks for stopping by and until next time.
