On the Hook, 30/5/20

This week I’ve completed parts 17 and 18 of my Pandemonium blanket, as well as finishing the wraparound skirt I was working on. Pandemonium CAL Part 17 – more pretty pink petals and some blue clusters. Pandemonium CAL Part 18 – more dragonflies, yay! 😀 If you’re being observant you might notice that at theContinue reading “On the Hook, 30/5/20”

On the Hook, 23/5/20

This week has mostly been about the Pandemonium CAL and the wraparound skirt, although I must admit to starting yet another project too! As usual there have been 2 parts released for the CAL this week – parts 15 and 16. Here’s how things looked at the end of part 15 (on Sunday): And hereContinue reading “On the Hook, 23/5/20”

Mothers Day

I decided to make my mum a card this year. It takes me back to when I was little, making a card at school all covered with glue and glitter probably! Hopefully this one is a little more grown up, although the writing is a bit dodgy. It would have been better to print theContinue reading “Mothers Day”

Blue Circles

The Blue Circles cardi was finished on Thursday and I wore it to work on Friday. I did feel slightly overdressed as it’s so special, but I felt proud of myself for finishing it. Here are some photos taken immediately after finishing it. It was blocked again afterwards so the bottom corners are now moreContinue reading “Blue Circles”

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”

Crochet Progress

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 weekendContinue reading “Crochet Progress”

Carnival of Flowers & Christmas Progress

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 andContinue 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 sneakContinue reading “Christmas Crochet”

Off-Season Crochet Madness

When there’s nothing to photograph outside, or the weather is bad, I turn to crochet. In the winter when there are no insects and flowers to look at, it’s nice to make your own pretty things indoors 🙂 This is what I’ve been up to recently – a beautiful Lily blanket designed by Jane Crowfoot (usingContinue reading “Off-Season Crochet Madness”
