Its Autumn down here.....

but feeling a lot like winter lately. Brrr and Ouch....I dream of warmer places to be. For someone who loves yarn so much I really don't do cold too well. My bones are not loving it at all. I love my home but at this time of the year I just want to head somewhere warmer and come back in a couple of months. Not feasible this year but one can only dream hey? :-)

Now for todays show and tell we have the Autumn Infinity Scarf which I started a few weeks back and finally finished last week. I changed the name of mine to Ocean Sky as the colours are not very Autumny at all.

It has since been gifted to my Aunt who is visiting from the US at the moment. She goes home soon and we are going to miss her. :-(  I used Murano yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills. A little less than one skein was needed.

The pattern is very easy to follow, a pretty design but I found my choice of yarn a little bit too bulky for the wrap around. I would recommend using something a bit lighter if you want to make it. 

Jewelllery Swap......

Hello Lovelies.   I have been joining in on some Monthly swaps through an online Crochet/friendship group.  Last month we swapped bookmarks and I sent this one along to my partner.....

This month we are swapping Jewellery and I am a little late posting mine out so hopefully in the next day or so it will be off and arriving before the month is over.  Here is my effort this time, stepping out of my colourful comfort zone to suit my partners taste..... I actually quite like the way it turned out. :-)

The pattern is from the Noro Crochet Book which I gifted myself for Mothers Day. It is such a beautiful book, patterns aside. LOL I just had to have it. Filled with gorgeous patterns using Noro yarn.

As you can see I used Cotton for this project as opposed to the called for Noro Sock Yarn and I only used half the pattern this time, as I did not have enough beads to make the extra two strands with leaves. I think in Black it would have been too much anyway. I am happy with the results. I hope my partner likes it too.

Have a lovely week all. xoxox

So busy busy as usual.. renovations are still ongoing and I have several projects that just need finishing touches so here a just a few pictures so you know I have not disappeared all together....Sorry no time to link to patterns today.
