For varied causes, we’ve delayed the set up of the coal reef in our store window. This implies we’ve received extra time to make coral, but additionally that different fishy actions can go on. And so, the final week or two has discovered me making a brand new bollard cowl from scraps. I toyed with the thought of extra coral, however ultimately I made a decision on a unique sea creature.

The gray yarn is a few historical wool combine that’s been hanging round unloved for ages, and the cream stomach/fins are constructed from a little bit of West Yorkshire Spinners Color Lab left over from a mosaic crochet class. The eyes are outdated buttons, the stuffing is recycled wool waste and the embroidery was achieved with a scrap of black left over from goodness is aware of what. The sample is Shane the Shark from Little Inexperienced Bear, labored in DK fairly than aran.

After all a shark does want some sea to offer a house, so I’m at present engaged on the bollard cowl, utilizing scrap yarn – primarily acrylic, however the high is similar WYS wool as Shane’s stomach and fins. It’s an adaptation of Attic 24’s Neat Ripple sample which I’ve utilized in varied initiatives earlier than.

After all we additionally proceed to make crochet corals with all types of scrap yarn… all will probably be revealed in a couple of weeks time.
