Finally no more chair scraping with these crochet chair leg covers. Part 1 – square legged chairs 

The noise of chairs scraping along a wooden floor can be enough to make you wince, but combine that with them scratching a polished floor at the same time is a major problem that needs a solution before it sends me around the twist! I’ve tried small felt dots on the bottom of the legs which failed miserably after a few days so decided another solution was needed. I had some lovely grey Arran wool leftover from a jumper and it gave me an idea to make some chair leg socks. The first batch were for some square legged chairs. Next up will be some for round legs!

Just can’t keep away from these crochet animals, time for a nanny goat 

Every time I put away my Edwards Menagerie book by Kerry Lord planning not to make a few more for a while I always end up going and getting it out again. I just can’t stay away from it for long, there is always a need to make another! 

This time it’s a Nanny goat, who is having a great time chilling out in the garden by the look of these pictures, don’t know how they will feel when the weather starts getting colder!
