Crochet sunflower tunic.

This was probably my most complicated pattern that I've attempted and selfishly it was all for me too .
The pattern did say it was a weekend project but it took 4 weeks to do. remembering I work full time and have a family !  So maybe if I had a whole week end to myself and no need to put down my crocheting I might of got it done in a weekend lol !

Here it is what do you think ?

heres a link to the pattern

Mermaids hair jumper

I was uploading some photos from last year when i saw my mermaids hair jumper and thought hey I haven't put  this on my blog !
Mermaids hair was an expression i saw used on a facebook group describing the yarn i used.

Its RICO CREATIVE REFLECTION  yarn in candy. I love this yarn because as well as being sparkly and very yummy its very long ! The yardage is great and I made the jumper with 4 ball s !!!

not the best knitting lol I know !

I'm uploading some photos of our walk on the Offas Dyke these were taken last autumn.
