Crochet: New Socks & Fabulous Yarn

Crochet: New Socks & Fabulous Yarn

Hello! It’s finally stopped snowing here so normality has resumed. We always seem totally unprepared for snow down in the south and even though the snow thawed two days ago I have yet to find a loaf of bread on the shelves of the supermarket (although strangely we have hot crossed buns!). 

Anyway, now that the children are back at school I can tell you all about my new crochet socks. Yes socks! Buoyed on from the success of the Simmerdei socks I am now the proud owner of TWO pairs of handmade socks…

February Crochet Catch-up

Hello. February is finally here and I am over the moon about it. I’ve tried to make friends with January, I really have, but I feel it’s an on-going process so I’ll keep trying and for now just be thankful to be that bit closer to Spring.

Anyway, I have been busy crocheting and designing so I thought I’d share a few things I have made over the past month with you today…
