On the Hook, 12/9/20

This week, I got a jumper idea in my head, like an itch I had to scratch. I’m not sure if this is an original idea or if someone else has already done it, but I’m going with it. I saw a tunisian crochet entrelac jumper on Instagram. The image stuck in my head andContinue reading “On the Hook, 12/9/20”

I don’t want to break my blogging streak by not doing a crochet post today … but I have nothing to share! I have been busy working, and have only crocheted things that you can’t see I’m afraid. How about you enjoy this photo of our spider plant who has moved home in my home-madeContinue reading “On the Hook, 5/9/20”

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”

Everyday Objects

This week’s theme for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘Everyday Objects‘. I had an enjoyable time poking around the house for everyday objects to capture 🙂 My life at the moment includes a lot of cat care. My cat Bobby has had an eye ulcer for 7 weeks now and has been back and forthContinue reading “Everyday Objects”

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”

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”

On the Hook, 25/7/20

This week hasn’t seen a huge amount of crochet progress, but there has been some. I have actually started on some projects that I can’t share, so it’s going to look like I haven’t done much for a while to come now. First off, Baby Pandemonium… I have actually done more than you can seeContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/7/20”
