On the Hook, 15/2/20

No progress on the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL this week, but I have finished my lovely rainbow shawl/scarf. I’m really happy with how it looks. Someone at work said it looked joyful, and that is exactly the right description 🙂 Here it is on Monday, when I’d just gone over the half-way point: I finished itContinue reading “On the Hook, 15/2/20”

On the Hook, 8/2/20

Not much progress on the Kaleidoscope CAL this week. I’ve have a total of 7 1/2 part 3 triangles now, so I’ve only done 4 1/2 this week. Mainly due to being exhausted and kind of broken from last weekend’s exertions and a very busy week at work. Some evenings I didn’t crochet at all.Continue reading “On the Hook, 8/2/20”

On the Hook, 1/2/20

I finished my 36 squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL this week: I got them all done and dusted (including ends) last Sunday. So proud to have got them all done. Of course then it was time to get working on part 2 again. Quite slow progress as I’ve only managed to get 8 of theContinue reading “On the Hook, 1/2/20”

On the Hook, 25/1/20

It feels like I haven’t done much this week, but actually I have managed to create 12 more squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL since last week’s post, so that’s not bad for someone working full-time and going to bed at 9pm! I’m now on 33! So close to finishing now. I hope I’ll finish offContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/1/20”

On the Hook 18/1/20

This week I have mainly been crocheting squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL. I have now reached the heady heights of 21 completed squares! Only 15 to go! Yesterday, part 2 of the CAL came out (a triangle), and I’ve done a couple to see what they’re like. I will go back to squares now andContinue reading “On the Hook 18/1/20”

On the Hook 11/1/20

This week I have been continuing to work on my squares for the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL. So far I have 13. I’m working towards a total of 36. I don’t think I’ll have all 36 done by the time the next part of the CAL comes out (17th) but that really doesn’t matter. I’m thinkingContinue reading “On the Hook 11/1/20”

Crocheted Wreaths and Garlands

I picked up a great new crochet book at the weekend from The Works. It’s called Crocheted Wreaths and Garlands, by Kate Eastwood. There are some gorgeous things to create. Here are a few little samples… Looking forward to trying out these patterns!

On the Hook 4/1/20

I thought I’d try and do a regular crochet update, and a Saturday morning seems like a good time. So what have I been up to recently? While I was visiting family for Christmas, I picked up some Caron Simply Soft from Hobbycraft at half price. I was very pleased with this bargain! I’ve startedContinue reading “On the Hook 4/1/20”

Crochet Art

I created some crochet art for members of my family this Christmas and I can now finally show it off after they’ve all received their gifts. First off, for my sister I created a branch of cherry blossom, with some embroidery to create the branch: Mum had some Japanese Anemones, again with some embroidery forContinue reading “Crochet Art”
