On the Hook pondering, 10/10/20

There was a time when the things that I now love were derided. I felt uncomfortable and bored in silence. Frustrated by sitting quietly. Longing for something, anything to actually happen! But these things are now my pleasures. To sit on the sofa and crochet to the rhythm of the ticking clock and the gentle…… Continue reading On the Hook pondering, 10/10/20

The weather is turning more autumnal now so we have been thinking about keeping warm. My daughter needed a hat, so I decided to find the scarf/shawl I had started making her a while back and get that finished and make a hat to match. I don’t actually have a photo of her wearing them,…… Continue reading On the Hook, 3/10/20

For reasons I won’t go into here, I missed my post last week. I managed 37 straight weeks of posting every Saturday, which is still pretty impressive! So here I am today with an update on non-secret things… Last time I was experimenting with a spiral jumper, and I was thinking perhaps the spirals weren’t…… Continue reading On the Hook 26/9/20

Space in the garden

This week’s topic for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘negative space’. In terms of photography, negative space is about including more in your shot other than the subject, and allowing that quiet background to highlight the subject. I looked back at some photos I took in the garden a few weeks back and cropped some…… Continue reading Space in the garden

This week, I got a jumper idea in my head, like an itch I had to scratch. I’m not sure if this is an original idea or if someone else has already done it, but I’m going with it. I saw a tunisian crochet entrelac jumper on Instagram. The image stuck in my head and…… Continue reading On the Hook, 12/9/20

I don’t want to break my blogging streak by not doing a crochet post today … but I have nothing to share! I have been busy working, and have only crocheted things that you can’t see I’m afraid. How about you enjoy this photo of our spider plant who has moved home in my home-made…… Continue reading On the Hook, 5/9/20

Back to Dyfed Shires!

We hadn’t been able to visit Dyfed Shires since December last year, so we have been itching to go and visit for a while now. We were finally able to go and catch up with all the horses on Wednesday. It was so nice to see them all again, and the humans too! 🙂 I’ve…… Continue reading Back to Dyfed Shires!

This week I have been on leave from work so have had more crochet time and I decided to focus on my daughter’s cardigan and my dragonfly jumper. The cardigan has grown a LOT since I last showed it to you, and it now actually has a whole body and one sleeve! Once I’ve done…… Continue reading On the Hook, 29/8/20

Everyday Objects

This week’s theme for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘Everyday Objects’. I had an enjoyable time poking around the house for everyday objects to capture 🙂 My life at the moment includes a lot of cat care. My cat Bobby has had an eye ulcer for 7 weeks now and has been back and forth…… Continue reading Everyday Objects

This week I’ve mainly been working on secret things, but I did finish off my cushion. I’m very happy with it 🙂 It looks good from either side and goes well with my blanket and the other cushion I made. In the last picture you can see me comparing the tulips on the cushion with…… Continue reading On the Hook, 22/8/20
