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”

This week I’ve mainly been working on secret things, but I did finish off my cushion. I’m very happy with it 🙂 It looks good from either side and goes well with my blanket and the other cushion I made. In the last picture you can see me comparing the tulips on the cushion withContinue reading “On the Hook, 22/8/20”

Creativity

I struggle with labelling myself as creative, or labelling the things that I do as creativity. Is following a crochet pattern creative? Is photographing an insect or a flower creative? I get bogged down in dictionary definitions that say things like: creativity is “the ability to produce or use original and unusual ideas” or “aContinue reading “Creativity”

Well, this is a first. I have absolutely nothing new that I can show you today! Have been making some slow and steady progress on secret things, and haven’t done any other crochet this week! So rather than just leave it there and have a very short post I thought I’d do a round-up ofContinue reading “On the Hook, 15/8/20”

On the Hook, 8/8/20

This week I have made some progress on secret projects, although there were a few evenings when I didn’t crochet and just cuddled my sick cat. I also did some crochet that I can actually show you! First I’ve done a few more rows on my dragonfly jumper. I think I’m at the end ofContinue reading “On the Hook, 8/8/20”

This week has been exhausting, with work and multiple trips to the vet with my cat, with all the associated anxiety, but I still managed to get quite a lot of crochet done. Bobby (the cat) has an eye ulcer, but fortunately it’s almost all healed now. He says “hello” (with a wink)! There haveContinue reading “On the Hook, 18/7/20”

On the Hook, 4/7/20

This week has been mainly focused on the final stages of the Pandemonium CAL. It is now completely finished! I haven’t done any other crochet this week – making a border all the way around a very large blanket is rather time consuming! So here it is. The first few photos were from part wayContinue reading “On the Hook, 4/7/20”

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”
