200th post !!

I have made it to my 200th post and here's a thank you gift to you for taking the time to read through my blog. I am having a giveaway and its going to be for a mug warmer, not sure what the colour will be , that can be upto the winner, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.
I have started doing some granny squares with the yarn that Penny sent to me.
and here's the scarf all finished.

Next one im going to make for me, these are lovely to make and i think there will be more of them making their way into some christmas stockings this year.
Also finished is the 20 knitted cloths, they just need the packaging and then i will take some pics.

ooooh Sarah! You've been so very busy! Your scarf is glorious - it looks like the most wonderful, long garland of coral. And your granny squares look marvellously smooth and sweet. Congratulations on 200 pinky-petaly-posts! I look forward to 200 more.

Rachel said...

Congratulations on your 200th post! That scarf is gorgeous, so, so pretty. And I just love your mug cosies, such a clever idea!

Your stuff is always so beautiful and in the yummiest colours. I have made that scarf so many times now too - it is very addictive!

Well done on 200 posts!! Love your latest scarf design - looks so pretty. Your mug warmers are really sweet.

Amy said...

Wow! You are a busy girl! Love those granny squares! If I do not learn to crochet for anything else it will be to make granny squares!
Congrats on hitting post number 200! Love the mug warmer- I like it just the way it is all pink and such!

congrats on your 200, and those lovely creations!

Wow! 200 posts - well done. Love the scarf and the Granny squares. Like everyone else my nan made many blankets using crocheted and knitted squares. She taught me how to knit but never to crochet. I've had a bash whilst on holiday but I think squares will be forever beyond me :o(

Candace said...

Congrats on your 200th post! I've always adored your creations. Drooling over your scarf and granny squares right now....soooo pretty. I've tried my hand at granny squares, but I just can't seem to get them right...I will one day!

Amanda said...

I almost purchased your mug warmer from your shop the other day. I didn't because I had a reality check and knew I couldn't afford it the fortnight. It was going to my mother in law, who has recently looked after her grand children a lot.

Your work is beautiful, you should be very proud.

Now I've been trying to teach my self to crochet a number of times and I just cant get the knack. Your squares look great, and your mug warmers are such an original idea

lilypad said...

Your beautiful scarf has inspired me to take up crochet again, granny squares remind me so much of my own Nana, and how patiently she taught me. Unfortunately, i cant remember how to start or stop, so if someone out there can cast on and off for me...........

clarabelle said...

Congrats on your 200th post! I love the new mug warmer. As you know I bought some of the regular ones for glasses - but I have actually found a new purpose for them....I put them around my glass candle holders (as they get hot when the wax is at the bottom)
Love the button idea though....
Nice scarf too
