Ombre Jumper finished

Finished this today. I’m mostly happy with it although it’s not as nice as the one that inspired it. It’s a little shorter than I’d usually like and being as it’s bottom up I would have needed to add rows at the beginning but I didn’t so I shall just have to get used toContinue reading “Ombre Jumper finished”

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”

Blue Circles Cardi

I started another cardi today! I know, I really should finish several other projects, but this pattern is so pretty. I saw it on instagram and fell in love.

Now that Christmas has been and gone I can finally share pictures of the gifts I was making. Bags I actually made four bags, but forgot to take a photo of the one that was for my uncle! So here are the other three… I used the “Stylin’ Tote Bag” pattern by Cathy Phillips forContinue reading “No longer secret crochet!”

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”

Orchid Cardi Progress

I have made it past the armholes!  Still a long way to go though. It’s so pretty! It’s not going to stay in this pattern all the way. It has a kind of waist band which is simple dc rows and sc rows (tr & dc in UK terms), and then it flairs out withContinue reading “Orchid Cardi Progress”
