todos sobre mi madre

Before I learnt to knit, and, latterly, to crochet, I was reliant on my lovely Mum for homemade goodness.

Here is a gallery of her greatest hits:

Venus in furs

purple patch blue collar scarflette and pixie hat chunky

The first three feature eyelash yarn, which she discovered in Wilkinsons and local poundshops a few years back.

The two hat and scarflette sets were made using King Cole Chunky yarn last year. We raided Mum’s button box¬† for the finishing touches.

The blue and yellow set was a joint project: Mum crocheted the hat, and I knitted the scarflette.

Now I’d like to make her a couple of things in return…
