Ombre Jumper

Despite all the things I could (should) be finishing I have just started a new jumper. I came to it in a roundabout way as I first saw it on Kick Arse Crochet (love the blog title!) and seeing it there made me go get a copy of Simply Crochet where this pattern could beContinue reading “Ombre Jumper”

Temperature Update

I’ve continued to add stripes to my temperature blanket, although as I have been crocheting various other things, I find myself crocheting it a week or two at once to catch up. I realise now that I started off with too few chains and it’s going to be ridiculously long and thin like some kindContinue reading “Temperature Update”

Kitty jumper for Abi

I haven’t updated this blog for a while so there are some things to catch up on. I saw this pattern in Crochet Now (issue 40) and we decided I’d make it for Abi. Hobbycraft were super-fast and the yarn I chose to use arrived the very next day! It was Knitcraft Hey Baby, chosenContinue reading “Kitty jumper for Abi”

Octopussy

I joined Octopus for a Preemie UK recently. They’re a charity providing little octopuses (and jellyfish) to hospitals for premature babies to have a bit of comfort. When in the womb the babies play with the umbilical cord, and the tentacles of the octopuses are similar and help them to be calm. I thought atContinue reading “Octopussy”

Mothers Day

I decided to make my mum a card this year. It takes me back to when I was little, making a card at school all covered with glue and glitter probably! Hopefully this one is a little more grown up, although the writing is a bit dodgy. It would have been better to print theContinue reading “Mothers Day”

Blue Circles

The Blue Circles cardi was finished on Thursday and I wore it to work on Friday. I did feel slightly overdressed as it’s so special, but I felt proud of myself for finishing it. Here are some photos taken immediately after finishing it. It was blocked again afterwards so the bottom corners are now moreContinue reading “Blue Circles”

Blue Circles Cardi

I started another cardi today! I know, I really should finish several other projects, but this pattern is so pretty. I saw it on instagram and fell in love. It’s called the ‘Golden Circles Cardigan’ by Juliette Bezold and it’s available from Annie’s Craft Store Website So far I’m enjoying it a lot – IContinue reading “Blue Circles Cardi”

Temperature Blanket

I’ve been making a temperature blanket since the start of the year. I made up the pattern – it’s row of htr (hdc US), then a row of tr (dc US) into the back 2 loops of the htrs (hdcs US). It gives it a bit of texture as well as the changing colours. ThereContinue reading “Temperature Blanket”

No longer secret crochet!

Now that Christmas has been and gone I can finally share pictures of the gifts I was making. Bags I actually made four bags, but forgot to take a photo of the one that was for my uncle! So here are the other three… I used the “Stylin’ Tote Bag” pattern by Cathy Phillips forContinue reading “No longer secret crochet!”

Envision Cardi

I started another project! I know, I should finish what I’m doing first, but as I’d completed 4 out of 5 Christmas projects, and there was a 3 for 2 on everything at Hobbycraft, I couldn’t resist. I’m making the Envision Cardigan by Heidi May, using Knitcraft Get Your Fluff On. Loving the yarn andContinue reading “Envision Cardi”
