Last night I finished crocheting this jumper! 😀 I still have the ends to do, and there are a LOT of them. Hopefully I’ll get them done today and then I can actually wear this 🙂 I’ll probably try and get some photos of me wearing it once they’re done. Here are the progress photos…… Continue reading On the Hook – Mosaic Jumper Finished!
As you may have seen last week (if you got to the end of the post!) I started a new jumper on Christmas day. The pattern is from Inside Crochet (issue 129), designed by Sandra Gutierrez AKA Nomad Stitches, and I’m using Cygnet DK yarn. My Mum bought me the yarn for Christmas, so of…… Continue reading On the Hook, Mosaic Jumper
This week I have been doing quite a variety of things! Now all the Christmas crochet is done and dusted, the freedom to crochet whatever I like has gone to my head a bit! I did a little bit on my Metropolis Cardigan which hasn’t been worked on for many, many months (I think I…… Continue reading On the Hook, 26/12/20 (normal service resumes!)
Finally I can show you what secret things I was making for about half the year! Back in July, when I finished my Pandemonium Blanket, I was kind of in between projects. I started the Baby Pandemonium when that came out, and I’d made a Pandemonium inspired cushion, but wasn’t totally invested yet. Then I…… Continue reading On the Hook: Christmas Present Reveal!
Well, I’ve slipped out of the habit of weekly crochet updates, but I’m randomly posting today as I’ve finished something that I am allowed to show you! This is the Amelia Raglan that I started back in June. The body was done with just the rib to finish, and sleeves to add. I picked it…… Continue reading On the Hook, 14/12/20
This week (well, 2 weeks really as I didn’t update last week), the Diamonds not Pearls jumper has grown, and I’ve made a bauble. Here’s the jumper: Won’t be too long until I reach the bottom and will move on to the sleeves. The texture is lovely: Yesterday I came across Lilla Björn’s new CAL…… Continue reading On the Hook, 21/11/20
This week I have reached armhole level! Loving how this jumper is turning out 😁🥰
I restarted my Diamonds not Pearls jumper, this time I’m using a 6mm hook, I did a gauge swatch, and I’ve read the pattern properly! I really enjoy working on this, and have to be strict with myself otherwise the other things I’m making won’t be finished in time. I am loving how the 2…… Continue reading On the Hook, 24/10/20
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 now…… Continue reading On the Hook, 17/10/20
There was a time when the things that I now love were derided. I felt uncomfortable and bored in silence. Frustrated by sitting quietly. Longing for something, anything to actually happen! But these things are now my pleasures. To sit on the sofa and crochet to the rhythm of the ticking clock and the gentle…… Continue reading On the Hook pondering, 10/10/20
