Color wheel baby blanket

And here it is in all it's finished glory :)
I have donated this blanket to 'Possum Pouches' for a charity auction in aid of the Alannah & Madeline foundation -keeping children safe from violence!

Crocheted elephant

Made this one up as I went along...kind of a flat pattern with mostly SC to join the pieces. Only lightly stuffed making it easier for little hands to hold. Great stashbusting project as each piece could be a different color yarn.

Crocheted buntings & a giveaway for a custom

I just made these up as I went along and think they turned out really nice :)  Made all in one piece with no sewing required. These first two have been crocheted in Uruguayan merino and are just so soft yet quite firm so the flags hold their shape.
The purple one also has jingle bells attached to each flag tip to add some extra distraction....for sale at IssySnookles
Custom orders are welcome for different lengths/colors etc

Plus go to my IssySnookles facebook page and tag yourself in a bunting pic for your chance to win a custom cotton 8 flag bunting in the colors of your choice. Open to worldwide!

Dragonflies and kingfishers

Both are of special significance for Gail so I combined them into a luxurious scarf made with 100% alpaca in a kingfisher blue soft and squishy with embossed dragonflies. Very happy with how it turned out and I do hope she likes it when I give it to her today :)
