A new Pencil Case

So today is my first day of Signalling school, so what better time to share with you my latest finished project – a new Pencil case.

I used some spare Scheepjes Catona I had in my stash from when I made a gingerbread house Christmas wreath last Christmas. The wreath required double stranded crochet so I still had a ball of double wound Catona languishing in my stash. So out it came, to make me a small pencil case.

I didn’t follow a pattern – I made it up as I went along. And once I finish Signalling school and no longer need it to transport my pens to and fro, I can use it to transport crochet hoos instead. Bonus!

FO Friday (16/02/18)

Hello all. Another project finished perfectly in time for a FO Friday post. Wonders will never cease.

Popping in to share with you my locker pouches that i have been making to organise my locker at work.

Dont you just love the colours.

In order of when I made them. The first was done with a starter chain of 20 and SC stitch all the way around. The second was done with a starter chain of 10, but with a slight gusset to make it slightly deeper and DC stitch. The third was done the same way with a starter chain of 30. The fourth was done using 2 basic granny squares stitched together with a row of SC. And the final one was done with a starter chain of 24 and HDC all around.

They certainly have helped to organise my locker substantially. Here is the before:

And here is the after:

And now, with the small amount of yarn I have left from this project, I might reward myself with an octo… only the one though, since I still have 2 substantial WIP’s to get a mooch on with.

Happy hooking!
