April Colours

I often think about this time of the year as Yellow Season as a lot of the early spring flowers are yellow. https://flic.kr/p/2kMQQQB Celandine https://flic.kr/p/2kMUXP2 Forsythia https://flic.kr/p/2kMUUum Willow catkins (and bee) https://flic.kr/p/2kRrNUS Gorse https://flic.kr/p/2kSmgMt Marsh Marigold https://flic.kr/p/2kSmgE9 Dandelion https://flic.kr/p/2kSmL8V Daffodil https://flic.kr/p/2kSqKfi Primrose There are other colours out there though.

This week’s Pandemonium parts had bead stitch again, which I love 🙂 So pretty! For some reason I had a mind blank at the end of part 13 and my beads were not quite right, but I fixed them up when I added part 14. Not sure why, but I was putting my hook into…… Continue reading On the Hook, 16/5/20

No progress on the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL this week, but I have finished my lovely rainbow shawl/scarf. I’m really happy with how it looks. Someone at work said it looked joyful, and that is exactly the right description 🙂 Here it is on Monday, when I’d just gone over the half-way point: I finished it…… Continue reading On the Hook, 15/2/20

Not much progress on the Kaleidoscope CAL this week. I’ve have a total of 7 1/2 part 3 triangles now, so I’ve only done 4 1/2 this week. Mainly due to being exhausted and kind of broken from last weekend’s exertions and a very busy week at work. Some evenings I didn’t crochet at all.…… Continue reading On the Hook, 8/2/20

I finished my 36 squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL this week: https://videopress.com/v/e0G7sWUd?preloadContent=metadata Revealing the massive tower of squares! This was taken before I finished sewing in the ends. I have now done them all! I got them all done and dusted (including ends) last Sunday. So proud to have got them all done. Of course…… Continue reading On the Hook, 1/2/20
