My new Hatty Hat hat
I found this pattern in an old 70's knitting pattern book I
picked up from a charity shop. It's knitted on straights so easy peasy :)
I love the colour of this alpaca Cotton , it's mega soft and sooo
cosy to wear. I'll post the pattern when I get round to
copying it.

Hot pink Garter bag
I was very excited to find a load of amazing 50's,60's & 70's knitting patterns in a junk
shop, one of the patterns was for this garter stitch bag.
I made a pretty brooch with a stripey button as a centre piece to finish it off. I have quite a few different projects
happening at the moment, I plan to make a hot pink cardigan
from one of the patterns I bought once I figure out how to read the 1950's pattern.

Cheese Mouse
This is cheese mouse, I spotted him on Monday last week in Granny's attic. my collection is growing so I didn't buy him straight away, I decided if he was still there on Friday it would be a sign and I would have to buy him. He was:) I need to eat some more food from my fridge to actually fit him in, he is quite happy hanging out by the toaster for now.
