International crochet month

It’s apparently International Crochet month. Recently I picked up my hooks for the first time in a while and made these two things.

First of all a cover for a coffee can. I meant to make something more modern looking with the self-striping yarn. Then I realized how thin the King Cole DK is, and it was going to take me ages. This is very chunky unknown brown wool, literally finished in an afternoon.

I stuffed his muzzle so it would stick out.  The buttons are antique boot buttons.


Then I made a pin cushion. My fabric pin cushion is so hard to get pins into. I think maybe my pins are generally quite dull, but this actually suits a bit better.
