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, 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”

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”

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”

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”

Orchid Cardi

I really should finish one thing before I start another! I started this before I finished the Jade jumper, but at least I then went back and finished the jumper off rather than leaving it languishing. This pattern is lovely, but it’s quite slow work. The WI Soft and Silky yarn is really making theContinue reading “Orchid Cardi”

Inside Weather

When the weather makes you want to stay indoors, one of my favourite things to is crochet. So if I can’t be going for a walk due to the weather, or my pain is too much for that kind of thing, I snuggle up in a blanket (I made myself) and am soothed by theContinue reading “Inside Weather”
