Stitch Markers

Recently I (the Pixie) have been feeling the need for instant gratification. I really haven't had the patience to concentrate much, so decided to make some stitch markers. When my shop is up and running, I intend to give them away to my regular customers or to the ones who (hopefully) spend lots and lots of money - I can but dream.

They were photographed by Welshy indoors, so the colours aren't showing up as well as they should.

Welshy's latest crochet hook

Welshy has just been commissioned to whittle a 4mm crochet hook and this is the result.

The wood is Silver Birch and it is finished with Danish Oil.

Showing off Welshy's skills

Welshy has been doing some pyrography recently, so I thought I would show some of his work. It's rather annoying that I started off as the pyrographer but he's far better at it than I am. Judge the quality of his work for yourselves.

Knitted hat for the hedgehog hospital auction

Here's a hat I've just finished, knitted in moss stitch, with a pyro'd button done by Welshy. This will be auctioned off on Facebook, with the proceeds going to the Help a Hedgehog Hospital.
