He's A Small Reindeer .......

Morning all, hope you enjoyed the MAWTT Challenge yesterday?? 
There's plenty of time for you to enter the competition.

The other Sunday Aldi, were doing a craft special in their stores. I bought this crochet kit for £3.50. Everything was included, and the instructions (although small print) were easy to follow. It was done on a 3mm crochet hook, and some of the pieces were no larger than my little finger, which wasn't easy to do....when you're trying to get your largest finger into the piece LOL !!
Anyhow, it took me almost a week to do and I think he's adorable !! My husband even commented on his expression and said " you're not going to sell him are you?".  Of course......he will go on the stall when I start showing my Christmas bits......but I won't be too disappointed if he doesn't sell.

Talking of selling, I've got a busy weekend starting today. I'm doing the local market. Tomorrow I'm doing a MacMillan coffee morning for a community centre , Sunday I'm doing a craft fair at a local village, and then on Monday I'm back at the community centre for the monthly market!!! Haven't told my lot indoors that there'll be no cooking/cleaning/washing done yet......I guess they will work that out by the fact that I'm not there LOL !!

Will report back next week on how they went. 

Have a good weekend x

  3. Hi Jan,
    he's adorable no wonder your DH didn't want you to sell him.
    Oh my gosh you are a busy lady.
    We had our coffee morning this morning, and I came home exhausted and went to sleep for half and hour.
    Not sure how much we took yest, but I have lots of cake left over to give my children, and grand children.
    Tried to sell off as much as I could.
    Hubby always says I go over the top. LOL.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Hi Janice

  5. Your Reindeer is so super cute!!! My kindergarten daughter just LOVE it:)

  6. Hi Jan, your reindeer looks great, I’ve also bought the same kit from Aldi just this year. Please could you give me any advice for the socks, the instructions are:
    Make a normal foundation ring and ch 15,
    Round 1 start in the third chain of the hook, 13 htc
    Cut yarn leaving a tail of 25cm and thread through last loop.
    I’ve tried a couple of ways now but it isn’t circular, I understand the stitches just not sure how to make it look like a sock it’s more like a strip of brown crochet.
    Thanks Clare x
