On the Hook: Christmas Present Reveal!

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!

Christmas Bokeh

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

New Traditions (and crochet update)

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)

On the Hook, 21/11/20

This week (well, 2 weeks really as I didn’t update last week), the Diamonds not Pearls jumper has grown, and I’ve made a bauble. Here’s the jumper: Won’t be too long until I reach the bottom and will move on to the sleeves. The texture is lovely: Yesterday I came across Lilla Björn’s new CAL…… Continue reading On the Hook, 21/11/20

Crochet Art

I created some crochet art for members of my family this Christmas and I can now finally show it off after they’ve all received their gifts. First off, for my sister I created a branch of cherry blossom, with some embroidery to create the branch: Mum had some Japanese Anemones, again with some embroidery for…… Continue reading Crochet Art

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 for…… Continue reading No longer secret crochet!

Crochet Progress

Part 5

Since my last post, there has been quite a lot of progress on different projects. Secret Christmas Projects I have now finished 2 items, almost finished another and am about 3/4 of the way through another. I’m amazed that the secret project for my daughter is still secret! I’ve been working on it on weekend…… Continue reading Crochet Progress

Carnival of Flowers & Christmas Progress

Part 3 completed today

Since my last post I’ve finished one Christmas present, nearly finished another and am maybe 1/2 way through a different one. Not bad, although September seemed to disappear very quickly as it will very soon be October. In addition to what I was already crocheting, I got tempted by the Carnival of Flowers CAL and…… Continue reading Carnival of Flowers & Christmas Progress

Christmas Crochet

As September arrives, many crafters start thinking about Christmas (if they haven’t already). It’s when you realise there are only 3 months left until Christmas and if  you’re going to craft some gifts you’d better get on with it! So I can’t really tell you much about my current projects, although I’ll give a sneak…… Continue reading Christmas Crochet
