One glove down... no more to follow?

I've had a nightmare with this. I have totally chosen the wrong yarn or have been crocheting too tightly. I had to add several more rows to the pattern and even now it’s a tight squeeze on my hand and I can barely move my fingers in it! Might just frog this and try again.

Crochet and Knitting for November

I've started a new crochet project - a pair of fingerless gloves for me to wear in the office over winter. It does get cold in here!!

About half way through the first glove. Going well but doesn't look too much yet.

Secondly, I went to my first craft night with some fellow crafty pals and was taught how to knit! I didn't do very well but with a little help managed to produce this cute flower that I plan to make into a pin.

Onwards with the yarn craft!!

Sparrow - WIP 1

My dad has asked for a drawing for Christmas this year instead of a bought gift. This photo was one I found a long time ago and wanted to draw, so I thought it would be a great reference,

Here's my line drawing ready for coloured pencil to begin!

The reference, by the wonderful Dave Slaughter, can be found on WetCanvas here.
