May & June in a Nutshell

Gosh May and June over and done with so fast that I missed posting about it! This year just seems to be zooming past so quickly The best bit of May for me was a family camping trip where we tried out our new tent as a test for our real holiday at the end of June. The weather was glorious and Little G absolutely loved sleeping in the tent in her special sleeping pod.

Crochet wise May was very busy too. Made three hats (of which I didn’t get photos for – doh!) finished of a special order for a girly version of my chunky caterpillar cocoon and I designed and released my Butterfly Dreams Car Seat & Swaddle Blanket to go with it. I also released Michael Monkey Puppet and one of my favourite Afghan square’s that I have designed the ‘Jolly Clown’ square.

June, June what a wonderful month – although we had a LOT of rain in June we have also enjoyed some sunshine!  We’ve had some nice family days out to craft shows, park events and local festivals which has been fun.  

Crochet wise day one of June was super exciting as I was featured in Too Yarn Cute Magazine ‘Just for Guys’ magazine again this time with my ‘Making Track’s Men’s Hat & Scarf Set’.  Mr. KCACO-UK had asked me to make him a scarf and it’s one of those things that I just hadn’t got round to making (my bad!).  The ‘Making Tracks’ scarf (and later matching hat) was so named as my husband is a keen mountain biker and the pattern is supposed to resemble tire tracks.   My husband was so pleased to receive something designed specifically with him in mind that I wished I had made it sooner!


The rest of the month was taken up with making the Spot the Giraffe Blanket for baby Thomas and getting ready for my holiday to France!  I’ll do a post about that soon!

Have a happy month of hooking!
