Last night I finished crocheting this jumper! 😀 I still have the ends to do, and there are a LOT of them. Hopefully I’ll get them done today and then I can actually wear this 🙂 I’ll probably try and get some photos of me wearing it once they’re done. Here are the progress photos…… Continue reading On the Hook – Mosaic Jumper Finished!
This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is about our favourite images from 2020. I’ve already posted about the photos/posts that were most popular among my readers, but now it’s my turn to look back at the year and think about my own personal favourites. Way back in January 2020, the light was just gorgeous on these…… Continue reading 2020 Favourites
As you may have seen last week (if you got to the end of the post!) I started a new jumper on Christmas day. The pattern is from Inside Crochet (issue 129), designed by Sandra Gutierrez AKA Nomad Stitches, and I’m using Cygnet DK yarn. My Mum bought me the yarn for Christmas, so of…… Continue reading On the Hook, Mosaic Jumper
I’ve been looking at the most popular posts on my blog for this year. I based it on both views and likes. To me, likes are more important as that tells me the viewer liked it enough to press the button. Views just tell me they had a look and doesn’t tell me whether or…… Continue reading 2020 Top 10
This week I have been doing quite a variety of things! Now all the Christmas crochet is done and dusted, the freedom to crochet whatever I like has gone to my head a bit! I did a little bit on my Metropolis Cardigan which hasn’t been worked on for many, many months (I think I…… Continue reading On the Hook, 26/12/20 (normal service resumes!)
Finally I can show you what secret things I was making for about half the year! Back in July, when I finished my Pandemonium Blanket, I was kind of in between projects. I started the Baby Pandemonium when that came out, and I’d made a Pandemonium inspired cushion, but wasn’t totally invested yet. Then I…… Continue reading On the Hook: Christmas Present Reveal!
I decided to take some ‘proper’ photos of some of our decorations today. Yesterday’s photos were taken on my phone, and these are taken on my camera. My phone is great for a quick photo, but if you’re trying to get certain things in focus and others not, you really need to use a proper…… Continue reading Christmas Bokeh
As you may know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, last year I crocheted a set of Christmas baubles. We also bought a living tree last year, for the first time, and the baubles were gradually added to it as I made them. This has started a new tradition for us. We…… Continue reading New Traditions (and crochet update)
Well, I’ve slipped out of the habit of weekly crochet updates, but I’m randomly posting today as I’ve finished something that I am allowed to show you! This is the Amelia Raglan that I started back in June. The body was done with just the rib to finish, and sleeves to add. I picked it…… Continue reading On the Hook, 14/12/20
