These two hats were made from Riot wool from King Cole.

King Cole Riot DK Knitting Wool/Yarn Ace 410 – per 100g ball
King Cole Riot DK Knitting Wool/Yarn Funky 409 – per 100g ball

two of the wide range they do have.  I am a keen supporter of King Cole yarns and was a distributor in Spain.  Now back in the UK, finding great places to buy the yarn has become a bit of an obsession.  I have and do get some supplies from ESK in Eastbourne, I have even met their Sales Manager the last time I was there.  As I had ordered a large quantity to send to Spain for me to sell out there.  I have now got to get my supplies back from Spain to use here.  I am happy to share what I make and my resources with you.


Beautiful book

I am old school really and prefer to have a book I can refer to rather than a screen to follow. I have recently bought this book to learn how to make flowers and am surprised how clear and precise it is.

Following new patterns is always a challenge and it usually takes me a few times to get it looking just right.

I hope that with this book your flowers will also become a delight to your projects just as I am planning to use them for mine.

t present I am crocheting a table cloth for my outdoors next spring.  So it will be nice to have additional touches around my garden area to make it more special and unique to me.  I cannot have a real live garden on the camp site but I can certainly be creative and make them for my gazebo and windbreaker.

I made these for my spring garden so that my caravan area will be at least different and full of colour.
