Test Crocheting

Recently I have signed up to test stitch crochet designs on Ravelry and have been really enjoying these projects.  Having an absolute deadline certainly helps me concentrate on one project at a time!

I started with the lovely little Bunny Basket:

I did have the basket full of mini-eggs, but they all seem to have disappeared and with no-one owning up to eating them!

The same designer then asked if I'd like to test the companion Ducky Basket!  And so here she is:

And finally my latest test design has been a shawlette - more a scarf really.  Typically I have been stitching this in a mini heatwave!  Not that I'm complaining - seeing the sun again is wonderful.  This one has stitched up really quickly.  It took me only five days, I think.  Definitely one I'll be stitching again.  I think I'd like to try it in more spring-like colours with laceweight wool.  And guess what - that's exactly what's winging it's way to me in the post right now!  Here are a couple of photos:
