Rainbow Mobile

Isn't this pattern from Hook & Yarn absolutely adorable?

I wish I'd known about this pattern before I had children.
I'd definitely have made one for them :)

V-Neck Halter Top

Another vintage pattern from the 70's.

Does that make me vintage, too?

Do I have vintage boobs?

- no wait, they didn't arrive until the mid 80's, so maybe I only have a vintage navel.

Patrizia Pepe Skirt

Gorgeous flaring skirt.

I love this, but I think I'd stuff it up - I'm not so good with the fiddly bits  :(

The Post Office Hat

I love the bobble pattern on this beanie.
It gives it style, and turns it into more than just a beanie.

It's a crochet cap now, perhaps?

Punkin Scarf

This autumn-coloured scarf looks so soft and warm, modelled here by Alex the cat, the designer's furry assistant.

I liked the flower stiches of the scarf, but I really added it here because I love the photo :P

Christmas Tree Skirt

Wouldn't this look lovely around the base of the tree in December?

I'm working on my first afghan at the moment (actually I hurt my elbow on Monday night, when I spent too long at it), but this is my next project.

Ms Pacman & Friends Change Purses

Fun reminders of a time when you had to go out to the pinball parlour to play a computer game.

Now, instead of spending all our money on arcade games, we can sit at home and play for free.

So where else would you keep all those coins you're not spending anymore?

Archena Skirt

I love this skirt, and I love the idea of being able to wear my crochet rug ;)

Not something for everyday, but nice for a different look now and then.

Definitely needs a slip to wear underneath.

Fun Retro Potholders

I love the cute-ness of these potholders.

-And although I'm not really into crochet in the kitchen, I think they make a very sweet wall-hanging.
