Irish Crochet - Flower and Trefoil

My next attempts at IC - whilst I can see obvious mistakes, for my second/third attempt I don't think it is too bad and can only improve.

I am really enjoying this challenge group.

A snapshot of the "Big Miner"; a statue holding a pick, on display on the outskirts of Ballarat. Ballarat is a well known historical town, with gold being discovered near Ballarat in 1851.

Flower Power Wrap

Here is the Lion Brand Flower Power wrap I just completed. It's lovely, the yarn is so thick and warm and the wrap/shrug/whatever-you-want-to-call-it is perfect for when the weather gets a little chilly but not cold enough for a jacket.

This is an up close and dangerous (not really, through a sheet of glass) photo of a snake for the Photo Friday Challenge.

Crochet of the month - May

Here is the completed CAL for May. Two quite easy squares (which need to be blocked at the end of the year). I think the combination of all the blocks (there will be 24 by the end of the year) will make a lovely afghan quilt.

My contribution to a "blue" photography challenge. I have no idea what type of plant this is, possibly a creeper?

Handspun Angora/BFL/Silk

Here is some recently spun gorgeously soft Angora/BFL/Silk from Ixchelbunny. The first photo shows the plait and the second photo shows it spun up; not sure what I will knit from this.

I know now not to wear black when spinning something as "airy" as this, or to have a very good clothes brush.

Irish Crochet - Shamrock

Here is my first attempt at Irish Crochet thanks to a KAL I am participating in. Every month we are attempting a different motif and then we will piece together into either a sampler or extra large doily. It's a great way to learn IC>
