"Churchmouse —the way the crochet stitch mingles and pixelates a hand-dyed yarn is brilliant. Our friend Sandra shared a crochet stitch with us that has the same effect!

Uzbek Baubles - I may have to learn how to do these and make (yet another) Christmas tree this year! Love the yarn wrapped tree, as I'm not one of those who can do guerilla knitting or crocheting! They are available for sale at www.niki-jones.co.uk/#
