Stained Glass Scarf
Starry Night Mash Up


The Stained Glass Scarf - finished and gorgeous. I used Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn and Debbie Bliss 4 ply merino. The pattern is available on Ravelry and it is Spectra by Stephen West.

Luckily I have enough yarn left to do a matching Stained Glass Hat - so I will mix up The Wurm and Sockhead Hat - watch this space.....................

In WIP Report 23 I announced this project as an Odds and Ends Needle Case - however it has now become a cushion cover - the Summer Garden Cushion Cover! I am using Lucy's How to Hexagon tutorial. I have two benches in the garden that need cushions and so I shall be researching the lovely projects over Attic 24 in order to brighten up these benches. I think a Blooming Flower Cushion is a must.

Magic Jeck is coming along nicely - I like the simplicity of the pattern.

My bead stash is getting a bit out of hand, three of those little trays are double sided! I must stop buying old beads for a while and use some of these up - well that's the plan. It's just so difficult not to pop into a charity shop and see if there are any must haves and it's all for charity:)

This project is a present for a friend - and I have christened it Starry Night Mash Up!

I really appreciate it if you can take time to comment - I love to read other people's thoughts and ideas.
Take care x
