Stock Taking and Free Form Crochet.

We have some shows in a month or so, so I thought I had better check on our stock in case we needed to make new things.

First box was full of creatures: don't need mice do need more tiny horses. Definitely don't need any more giant chickens!

The second box was a mistake I should never have opened it - sooo many hats that I e-mailed Vicky to check if it was ok to get rid of some of them. As you know my latest passion is free form and as I sorted out the hats I had a brain wave why not add scrumbles to the plain hats?

This is a little  mottled pink beanie and here it is with a few bits added but I plan to add more. Of course now I can't get rid of the hats!

I have finished the srcumble rainbow. I am really pleased with it. It makes a lovely scarf - even the tassles ( or tassels?) are free form. If I make another one I will make it longer and thinner and perhaps use a smaller range of colours so that it can be worn with a particular outfit.

I have stopped stock taking for now for three reasons:

1. When I opened the the third box I discovered more creatures so I have to sort before I stock take.
2. I have a pile of stuff that I can't put into any particular category/box like these.

You would think I would have made at least a dozen

Perhaps this should be with the Christmas stuff or maybe the Valentines day stuff or then again it could be with the phone/bag charms - I don't think I was meant to be organised.

3. I need to go and scrumble some hats.


  1. Oh Wow! Your free form rainbow is fabulous! Something inspirational to aspire to!
    Hope your eggs are put to good use soon!

  2. Thank you very much. It is so hard to be objective about your own work so positive comments really help.
