Quiet evening




I came across this pincushion pattern over at thepatchworkorange and had to make it.  I didn't follow the pattern exactly so mine isn't as nice but considering I threw it together while sitting around watching historical BBC mini series via netflix I think it turned out okay.

I would recommend using DK weight yarn instead of the worsted I used.  You will probably come out with one that is a little less chunky.

    I trade but haven't made much lately.
    I would really like to acquire one of your creatures though... and not necessarily through a trade. Also, I don't think I ever got back to you about the crochet needle roll....hmmmm.... sorry about that.
