On the Hook, 3/10/20

The weather is turning more autumnal now so we have been thinking about keeping warm. My daughter needed a hat, so I decided to find the scarf/shawl I had started making her a while back and get that finished and make a hat to match. I don’t actually have a photo of her wearing them,Continue reading “On the Hook, 3/10/20”

On the Hook 26/9/20

For reasons I won’t go into here, I missed my post last week. I managed 37 straight weeks of posting every Saturday, which is still pretty impressive! So here I am today with an update on non-secret things… Last time I was experimenting with a spiral jumper, and I was thinking perhaps the spirals weren’tContinue reading “On the Hook 26/9/20”

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”

On the Hook, 1/8/20

Not a lot of progress to report this week. Just one thing I can show you. I couldn’t resist starting something new with my lovely birthday present yarn. I’m making my own take on a pattern I found on Ravelry: Lunaria Sweater by Stephanie Erin. I liked the idea of the flower motifs going downContinue reading “On the Hook, 1/8/20”

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”
