On the Hook, 29/8/20

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 doneContinue reading “On the Hook, 29/8/20”

On the Hook, 12/4/20

It’s a day late, but better late than never. I wasn’t feeling too great yesterday and didn’t get around to doing my usual crochet update. Probably didn’t help that I haven’t done that much crochet this week! So, the lilac cardi has grown, but not massively: It looks kind of lumpy in this shot. It’sContinue reading “On the Hook, 12/4/20”

On the Hook, 4/4/20

Another peculiar week of working from home and online meetings. Not as stressful as last week, thankfully, but still very odd at times. I will have to venture out later to pick up prescriptions. It’s so weird that something that I used to consider perfectly normally now seems scary and strange. So anyway, back toContinue reading “On the Hook, 4/4/20”

On the Hook, 28/3/20

This morning I woke with a headache, and was feeling a tad on the negative side. I now work from home until further notice and this week has been really busy and stressful. Suddenly I was a little less keen to come sit at my computer and do my usual crochet update. After painkillers andContinue reading “On the Hook, 28/3/20”

On the Hook, 21/3/20

Despite the massive changes going on locally and around the world, some things are still the same. I’m clinging onto those things, holding them close, and trying not to dissolve into a puddle of anxiety. So let’s keep normal service going and do my regular update of what I’ve been crocheting this week. Like lastContinue reading “On the Hook, 21/3/20”

On the Hook, 14/3/20

Well, I can safely say that I will not be completing my Kaleidoscope Blanket by the end of the CAL! I’ve only done one triangle this week! Very slack. But I will get there eventually, so no worries. I have been crocheting though, of course… I bought myself a new (to me) dress from eBayContinue reading “On the Hook, 14/3/20”

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”

Orchid Cardi Progress

I have made it past the armholes!  Still a long way to go though. It’s so pretty! It’s not going to stay in this pattern all the way. It has a kind of waist band which is simple dc rows and sc rows (tr & dc in UK terms), and then it flairs out withContinue reading “Orchid Cardi Progress”
