Latch Hook Fairy

Day 365 – Latch Hook Fairy

I wanted my final fairy of this challenge to be special. I revisited an old favourite pastime from my childhood – latch hook.

I spent ages trying to create my own pattern and struggled trying to figure out how many different coloured wools I would need before I eventually came across this website which was so easy to use and straightforward and helped turn a jpeg image into a proper pattern and advised me how many colours I would need/how many strands of each wool I would need etc. It was very helpful although I did tweak the design a bit to accentuate some details.

I must admit that I have been working on this for a bit more than just today but I did finish it today! I am very happy with how it turned out.

French Knitted Fairy

Day 157 – French Knitted Fairy

I have been re-living my childhood using an old fashioned wooden French Knitting Spool and some multi-coloured wool!

I made a length of approximately two and a half metres and have arranged it, in one stroke, into today’s fairy.
