I’m like most people, I learned to crochet and suddenly all these new words and techniques have popped up. Today I’m tackling “Blocking”. You’ll probably read a lot of patterns that will say “block your item” or “block your squares to x size”. So what exactly does this really mean?

It may surprise you to read this, but in the UK, we never have weather like this, the last hot summer on record was 1976 – before I was born! It’s… Read More The heatwave and a crochet glass cover

As promised, I’m back on the crochet. In fact, I never actually left it, I just had other things to type about!

I’m being so creative, its starting… Read More Crocheting again

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!
