On the Hook, 20/6/20

This week has seen the completion of parts 23 and 24 of the Pandemonium CAL. It’s exciting to see it near finishing, but it’s sad too as I will miss it when it’s finished. Here’s part 23: As you can see in part 23 we continued with more loops (Jacob’s ladder) and reached the lastContinue reading “On the Hook, 20/6/20”

On the Hook, 13/6/20

This week I’ve completed parts 21 and 22 of the Pandemonium CAL, and had a change of heart regarding my new ombre yarn. So, part 21 of the CAL came with some contrasting coloured bobbles, and some zig-zagging v-stitch: Part 22 is teasing us with the start of some more loopy bits (otherwise known asContinue reading “On the Hook, 13/6/20”

On the Hook, 6/6/20

This week has seen the Pandemonium CAL get out of the teens, as we’ve done parts 19 and 20. It’s getting really big. Won’t be long until it covers the full length of the sofa! Here’s part 19: Big bobbles and some back and front post work 🙂 Now for part 20: Some more cuteContinue reading “On the Hook, 6/6/20”

On the Hook, 16/5/20

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 intoContinue reading “On the Hook, 16/5/20”

On the Hook, 9/5/20

Now that I’m up to date with the Pandemonium CAL I’m progressing at a more sedate speed with 2 parts done each week. This week was parts 11 and 12 (13 comes out tomorrow). Part 11 ended with some lovely big bobbles, and had some nicely textured stitches before that. With the green I used,Continue reading “On the Hook, 9/5/20”

On the Hook, 25/1/20

It feels like I haven’t done much this week, but actually I have managed to create 12 more squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL since last week’s post, so that’s not bad for someone working full-time and going to bed at 9pm! I’m now on 33! So close to finishing now. I hope I’ll finish offContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/1/20”

On the Hook 18/1/20

This week I have mainly been crocheting squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL. I have now reached the heady heights of 21 completed squares! Only 15 to go! Yesterday, part 2 of the CAL came out (a triangle), and I’ve done a couple to see what they’re like. I will go back to squares now andContinue reading “On the Hook 18/1/20”

Ombre Jumper

Despite all the things I could (should) be finishing I have just started a new jumper. I came to it in a roundabout way as I first saw it on Kick Arse Crochet (love the blog title!) and seeing it there made me go get a copy of Simply Crochet where this pattern could beContinue reading “Ombre Jumper”

Temperature Update

I’ve continued to add stripes to my temperature blanket, although as I have been crocheting various other things, I find myself crocheting it a week or two at once to catch up. I realise now that I started off with too few chains and it’s going to be ridiculously long and thin like some kindContinue reading “Temperature Update”

Kitty jumper for Abi

I haven’t updated this blog for a while so there are some things to catch up on. I saw this pattern in Crochet Now (issue 40) and we decided I’d make it for Abi. Hobbycraft were super-fast and the yarn I chose to use arrived the very next day! It was Knitcraft Hey Baby, chosenContinue reading “Kitty jumper for Abi”
