Baby Bruno Rattle- WIP

Baby Bruno Rattle- WIP, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

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.

Robyn and her nursery bag

Robyn and her nursery bag, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

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.
