Things have been a bit experimental recently. The spiral jumper has been frogged pretty much back to the start as the increases were still too fast. I’d got to the arm hole level and there was just too much fabric leaving me with puffy sleeves or ripples across the back and front. So it’s nowContinue reading “On the Hook, 17/10/20”

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”

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 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”

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”

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”

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 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”

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”

Well after last week’s grand reveal of the finished Pandemonium CAL blanket, I thought there would be nothing much to report this week. However, the lovely designers surprised us with a bonus blanket, the Baby Pandemonium! On Sunday morning when many of us were thinking “oh no it’s Sunday and no more pandemonium parts”, thereContinue reading “On the Hook, 11/7/20”
