Crochet - A Giant Granny Square Blanket

Crochet - A Giant Granny Square Blanket

I started a blanket last spring. I suppose it was a bit of an accident. I was clearing out my boxes of yarn and thinking I really needed a project that would help use up some of the large 400g balls I had collected. A blanket seemed the perfect project. I don’t really enjoy blanket making if I’m honest and I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired but I wanted the comfort of crocheting without having to think about pattern or design…

Crochet - Christmas Stocking Pattern

Crochet - Christmas Stocking Pattern

Oh it’s been so long. I’ve missed this space. I’m so happy to be back today with a crochet project to share. With the winter approaching we’ve been spending more and more time indoors. The long evenings have meant more time to crochet and I’ve had so many ideas. They all come and once so I’ve been working hard to control myself and finish one project at a time…

Crochet: Puff Chains

Hello again. I’m posting today about these rather marvellous crochet puff chains I’ve been making up in bright chunky yarn. I meant to post these last week but Lulu had a very unfortunate run in with some concrete steps last weekend that resulted in an ambulance ride to the A&E department…

Crochet: An update

Crochet: An update

It's been such a long time... 2014 was a busy year but I continued to enjoy my crochet time and a lot of my endeavours were recorded in my monthly column for Inside Crochet. This without a doubt is one of the things I am most proud of from 2014. I had so much fun creating the projects and writing about the things I love...

Pom-Pom Tea Cosy

Pom-Pom Tea Cosy

A while ago I went along to a Jamie at Home party. I fell in love with a big yellow teapot that was sitting snug inside a lovely bright crochet tea cosy. I ended up buying the teapot but I just couldn't justify buying the cosy when I knew I would get more satisfaction (and save some pennies) if I made one myself...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

And a bit of a catch up...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

Hello! It feels like a very long time since I've posted anything here. I have been busy crocheting, although recently my efforts have been focused on designs for other people. This has been both exciting and challenging. I have enjoyed being able to pin down some of my ideas into new projects - it has taken me out of my comfort zone but this is a good thing!

Anyway I thought I'd stop by quickly today to share some of the Easter crafting the children (and I) enjoyed...
