I wasn’t going to write anything today – but it’s been such an extraordinary day I can’t resist. I woke up this morning and carried out my usual task of walking the dogs at 6am. Another car was parked where I normally park in the completely empty car park, but I didn’t really think anything… Read More A Parallel Universe?
I’m having one of those mornings when I thought I thought I was going to be super duper busy, and then it turns out I’m not! So I’m sat here reflecting on what I could or should be doing! The garden needs weeding, the grass needs mowing (but it’s too wet, we had amazing thunder… Read More There's so much more I want to make!!!
I was so shocked to hear the sad news of Wink. She was an inspiration in the crochet world. Lots of my pins were her work without me even knowing it. So I thought it only right that I crochet a mandala for her. Crochetconcupiscence has started an appeal to collect mandalas. Details of… Read More My Mandala for Wink
I am very lucky to live in a part of the UK that loves Crochet and Yarn. Last year the local college about 3 miles down the road had a Yarn Festival called …. wait for it….. Festiwool! Did I go – I hear you ask? Well I bought the tickets, arranged with a friend… Read More Yarnbombing the local town (Unfortunately not by me!)!
I was without a posh camera for a few weeks. The good news is that finally I have a new one – it’s a Canon 70D, and it makes a posh clicking noise when I take a photo! It’s got wifi to let me hopefully get on Instagram, but then I discovered that isn’t an… Read More Crochet, the camera and summer is finally in the garden!
So what a week it’s been for me. The internet went crazy (In my small terms), for my shark pattern. Last week on Wednesday out of nowhere I started getting hits from a Facebook – and a lot of hits. Liking to know where things have come from I posted on my Facebook page asking if… Read More No Crochet for over 96 hours – what???!!!!
You know when you find something on Pinterest and think – yep I can do that? Well I did! A friend showed me a beautiful rainbow blanket she’d found on Pinterest a while ago – well I say a while ago – it was just before Christmas. It can be found on this lovely… Read More Rainbows
Last week I hate to admit it – but I just didn’t want to crochet. I know – hard to believe, but I was all crocheted out. I’d look at Pinterest for hours (like normal), but just not get any inspiration from it. I have no idea why – but the thought of picking up… Read More I lost my Crojo!
I came to the realisation that I need to sort out exactly what yarn I own. This would then hopefully avoid those moments in a yarn shop when you can’t remember what you’ve got…. well that’s the plan anyway! I emptied by Haberdashers chest with the help of the little people and then “what have… Read More Sorting the Stash and realising…….
A little later than planned, but here is my pattern for a shark tail. The shark was made when my son wanted a mermaid tail kind of thing like his sister had – but being a boy – didn’t actually want to be a mermaid (Mermaid tail pattern can be found here)! And the Alligator here!… Read More Eaten by a Shark – The pattern …. finally
