Wily Woman of Craftiness

These amazing crafty things were made by my awesome friend Devil’s Elbow. She’s always been quite crafty – I still have a turtle she made me many years ago – and these items are just as cool. Really cool. They have googly eyes and bright colours! What more do you need?!

The owl is perfect for sitting on a ledge to offer wise words of sage advice. What’s that you say, he can’t talk? What do you mean, he can’t talk?! Just me who talks to such items? Oh, ok then…

And the earrings! Just perfect for brightening up an outfit, with a splash of colour and fun.

Anyway, these have inspired me to have another go at crafting – crocheting and knitting and jewellery making and anything else that takes my fancy.

My first attempt: the blue crochet flower brooch, which I shall give to my mother for Mothering Sunday (she has to like it, I made it; that’s how it works :-P). Once you get the hang of it, crocheting’s quite easy really. It’s easier to make more complicated things than it is with knitting – or is that just me too? I’m still on the knitting squares stage of knitting: I made a whole blanket that way.
