my creative space...............playing with jam jars

I have done some serious knitting over the last week, I made a scarf and then I had a go at making a pouf/ floor cushion with massive chunky needles and yarn. It was hard work and cumbersome, my knitting got really heavy. Once my knitting was completed it was with pure delight that I reached for my favourite 3.5mm hook, my ice cream coloured Amalfi cotton and just had fun. I didn't really have a plan in mind but I quite fancied doing something pretty with jam jars, as lots of lovely decorated jars seem to be everywhere at the moment.

Over the Mother's Day weekend Marks and Spencer were selling small bunches of flowers in jam jars, they were decorated with ribbons and buttons and looked very pretty, I had also seen crochet jam jar covers on quite a few crafty blogs, Ladybird Diaries had posted a lovely one on her blog.

So after a bit of playing around with my yarn I decided that for my link up with Kirsty on "my creative space" I would make some lovely striped jam jar cosies, I think I might embellish them with some of my favourite tiny crochet hearts - what do you think?

I am in a spring cleaning and organising sort of mood, so I think these jars will come in very useful - and they are so lovely to look at.

Hope you get time to pop over to visit Kirsty.
