I've been bitten by the crochet bug! Here's a little something I'm working on for a new baby- a lion rattle. The pattern is "Baby Bruno Rattle" by Irene Strange (who has wonderful patterns) and the yarn is DB Baby Cashmerino. I don't think my colour changes on the handle are great, but the crochet on the face part is nice and neat.

The knitting and spinning have taken a back seat to the crochet and sewing recently. Here's my latest project- just a quick drawstring bag whipped up while Robyn was napping this morning for her bits and pieces for nursery. It's made from two FQs and a few scraps for the monogram and I've used green and purple ribbon for the drawstrings. It has a gusset at the bottom so there's loads of room for her Lotte bear, spare clothes/bibs, sunhat etc. I bought the lovely fabric at QuiltEssential in Derbyshire.
