My sister asked me, a week before his birthday, if I’d like to do this Harry Potter scarf kit for my nephew. It takes me much longer than that to knit anything, so I said I’d make it for Christmas — which meant doing a matching version for his sister, too.
I needed a gift for a carer, and I had some gorgeous sparkly yarns I wanted to play with. I’ve never finished a cowl before.
I have a large commode next to my bed with an ugly blue seat and back. I’ve wanted to cover it for a while, so when I saw MangoMum’s lovely Busy Bee crochet blanket pattern and found the perfect(ish) yarn for it, I knew where it was going.
A whole new bunch of slippers right off the hook!
Who doesn’t love a beautiful mandala that works up quickly and could become a blanket if you kept going?
Mandalas are an excellent way to bust your stash.
I originally started making these slippers for myself, but I didn’t like how the Unicorn Poop from Needle and Fred worked up in crochet. My carer loved them, however, so I decided to finish them as her birthday gift for this year.

Yet another Grumpy Cat? Don’t mind if I do!
This slipper pattern is pretty quick to work up and makes a lovely gift.
