I’m a huge fan of crochet bags. No surprise really, probably what is the surprise if that I haven’t ever got around to sharing my many creations with you here. I’ve made them for years, and they see to be my go to project for a holiday as acrylic yarn and hot weather does not… Read More Wing it Market Tote
As promised, I’m back on the crochet. In fact, I never actually left it, I just had other things to type about! A while ago, I completely lost my crojo, didn’t know what to make, couldn’t actually face picking up a hook. Well, consider this the opposite of that. I’m being so creative, its starting… Read More Crocheting again
We’ve just come back from from Thailand, a lovely 2 weeks in the sunshine to beat the blues of the awful UK winter. It’s been cold, dark, and raining for a lot of the last 6 months, so sunshine was definitely welcome and very much needed! We’ve been to Thailand a few times now, and… Read More Crochet Beachwear
Eeeeekkkkkk is about all I can manage to say at the moment! I’m so excited its silly. You might have heard of this fantastic magazine called Simply Crochet….. well this month – issue number 69 I’m in it with one of my patterns! This was my 2017 goal – to be published in a magazine,… Read More Yay – I’m in Simply Crochet
A long time ago, I started a jumper for me – well I say a jumper. I wanted a cardigan…… but “winging it” with no pattern was not on my side this time! It was my first time making an adult sized item of clothing. I’d seen some gorgeous jumpers on Pinterest, in the most… Read More A new Jumper for me!
I treated my self to a new crochet book a few weeks ago. I’d seen lots of people talking on instagram accounts, and I’ve followed the author Lalylala on Instragram for a long time – I love her Sheep doll! So, while I was waiting in the hospital for many hours with the pink one… Read More Lalylala, Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies
It’s time to finally show you the blanket that I made at the end of last year. I’d made lots and lots of circles and changed them into squares which you can read all about in some previous posts I made. The final layout was decided pretty quickly – before I could change my mind!… Read More Starburst Blanket Finished!
Do you ever get to the point with crochet that you really want to make something that quick, straight forward, and someone else has done the hard work for you? I love designing things, but sometimes sat down on the sofa with note books, pencils, and scribbles absolutely everywhere and ‘frogging’ happening every row can… Read More A Cardigan in under 9 hours
I’m a little late in posting this as the blanket is finished!!! But I thought you’d still like to the progress if you’ve followed it from the beginning, round 2, and round 3. This post is about finishing the final squares, blocking, and then the layout. Most if not all squares were completed before Christmas. … Read More Starburst blanket…. nearly done!
Hello, I’m back here briefly to share my blanket progress with you. Remember all those circles with 2 rounds? I wrote about them here, if you want a read. Well then I hit a stumbling block. I had it in my head I wanted no two circles with the same colours. Then I thought that… Read More Blanket progress
