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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Now for part 20: Some more cuteContinue reading “On the Hook, 6/6/20”

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! ๐Ÿ˜€ If you’re being observant you might notice that at theContinue reading “On the Hook, 30/5/20”

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”

Things I like to do…

If you’re a regular reader you will know what my main three pastimes are … observing nature, taking photos & creating things with crochet. Observing nature, and taking photos often goes hand in hand, although I do occasionally take photos of other things! These are a few photos my sister has taken of me throughContinue reading “Things I like to do…”

This week’s Pandemonium parts had bead stitch again, which I love ๐Ÿ™‚ 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”

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”

This week I have been continuing to work on the Pandemonium CAL. I have been loving it, it’s such a fun, relaxing and beautiful blanket to make ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m now all caught up so have to wait for more. Next part (11) is due tomorrow. Here it is at the end of part 9 onContinue reading “On the Hook, 2/5/20”

On the Hook, 25/4/20

This week I have been continuing to enjoy the lovely Pandemonium CAL ๐Ÿ˜€ This is how it looked in last week’s post: By the next day (Sunday) I had finished part 3: After working from home all day, I finished part 4 on Monday evening. I’d been looking forward to getting back to it allContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/4/20”

Today I have officially freed myself from a feeling of obligation to finish the Kaleidoscope CAL. I really did want to have that beautiful finished blanket, but the pleasure of creating had gone. I kept doing other things because I didn’t want to keep creating lots and lots of triangles, and I was feeling guiltyContinue reading “On the Hook, 18/4/20”

On the Hook, 12/4/20

It’s a day late, but better late than never. I wasn’t feeling too great yesterday and didn’t get around to doing my usual crochet update. Probably didn’t help that I haven’t done that much crochet this week! So, the lilac cardi has grown, but not massively: It looks kind of lumpy in this shot. It’sContinue reading “On the Hook, 12/4/20”
