I have been crocheting in my spare time, find it good for the 'grey cells' as poirot would say.
What i have been crocheting are some wonderful ear warmers. I started off making one for my youngest daughter but it came out huge (see pic 2), so a change of hook, and coloured yarn (a 6mm for a 4mm, 2 balls of dk for 1 ball of dk and 1 ball of 4 ply).
So far i have made 3, the first attempt, which luckily fits me, the 2nd attempt for my eldest and finally a 3rd one which fits my youngest perfectly. It's like the 3 bears of head gear. Both the girls love their ear wamers the elder one so much i have to remove it from her while she sleeps at night.
I got the pattern from a link from a friend, the link is to youtube and the excllent bobwilson123. A fantastic source for any crocheter, with great instructions and endless ideas to extend and adorn your crochet items.
the very helpful instructional video can be found here
