a little handwarmer love.....

 What a great pattern!
so fast and easy you can crochet them in an evening.
 I whipped these up last night with some of the left over yarn from my wool eater blanket.
As today was a rainy cold winters day, I enjoyed wearing them.
I think I'll pull out some other colours and work up a few more pairs.
You can find the pattern by creativeyarn
on Ravelry Here
and on creativeyarn's blog Here
The pattern only has the scalloped edging on the finger end of the gloves, I also added it to the foundation edge. 

I thought I would show you my current big project for this winter.
I am making my son a Vintage Dr Who Scarf
(Tom Baker season 16)

I love these gorgeous 1970s colours :)

The original scarf was knitted, but I'm not much of a knitter so am working it in Tunisian Crochet Purl Stitch...this is also the first time I've made anything in Tunisian Crochet and I'm quite pleased with how the front side of the purl actually looks quite similar to knitting purl stitch.
I've got a long way to go, If you are familiar with Dr Who you will know this is an extremely long scarf, and so far I am only about 20% of the way.

Have a great week everyone
~ Gillian ♥
