For this weeks Top 10 In Craft, It’s all about… I’ll give you a clue. What do rainbows, gold and the color green remind you of? That’s right, St. Patrick’s Day!
We’re sharing St Patrick’s Day Crafts that are fantastic and fun to share with all ages.
We have found all sorts of crafts, with lots of variety to keep everyone engaged. There are some simple and easy papercrafts and a quilting project that looks fabulous.
However, before we divulge the crafty goodness, a little progress report of my current crafting project…
On My Needles
Yippee, I have finished my cable dishcloth.
I like how it turned out, and I hope my friend who I am gifting it to will also love it.
Sadly, I have nothing more to show you.
The lace pattern Branta dishcloth I chose for my next project is causing me issues.
I had got through the first 13 rows of the pattern and then came up against a problem in the 14th row.
Somehow I had ten extra stitches!!
So I ripped it all back. I will need to work out where I am going wrong.
I suspect it is how I am doing my yarn overs, but I will see and let you know next week.
