A lacy knit collar and crochet socks

I have made a lacy collar with cream cotton yarn as lace is in fashion just now. I added this to the two lacy cushions already in Crafty Bags Folksy so I am quite ahead in fashion and home ha. The collar is retro vintage style fashionable in the 40s versitile easy to wash and transforms a simple top. dress or knit or can be worn alone as a beautiful, delicate necklass. I have now quite a varied selection of items and crafts as well as bags and adding to these all the time so be sure to pop back and take a look!

I just made my first pair of crochet socks. I like that they are not too thick or thin and are comfy I am keeping them for me. They are made with DK acrylic yarn. I may make a few to sell too.

Two crochet trim cushions

I just listed these two cushions in my Folksy shop Crafty Bags.

As the trend is lace in fashion and for pretty items for the home I thought I'd make these crochet lace trim cushions and I am very pleased with how they turned out though I say so myself.

The trim is worked on 272 crochet chain stitches and the pink one is a mix of 74% cotton and 26% linen the cream is 100% cotton.
