Despite the massive changes going on locally and around the world, some things are still the same. I’m clinging onto those things, holding them close, and trying not to dissolve into a puddle of anxiety. So let’s keep normal service going and do my regular update of what I’ve been crocheting this week. Like lastContinue reading “On the Hook, 21/3/20”

Well, I can safely say that I will not be completing my Kaleidoscope Blanket by the end of the CAL! I’ve only done one triangle this week! Very slack. But I will get there eventually, so no worries. I have been crocheting though, of course… I bought myself a new (to me) dress from eBayContinue reading “On the Hook, 14/3/20”

On the Hook, 7/3/20

As predicted, I couldn’t resist a bit of joining for the Kaleidoscope blanket, but I haven’t actually made a single triangle this week! Here are my joined pieces – only 2 as I don’t have enough triangles to do any more: What I’ve done instead of triangles is finish off my Luna sweater (pattern byContinue reading “On the Hook, 7/3/20”

This week I’ve done some work for the Kaleidoscope CAL but have also gone back to the Luna Sweater that I last mentioned at the beginning of January. I have been keeping track in a notepad as I mentioned last time, but today I decided to put it in a spreadsheet so I can haveContinue reading “On the Hook, 29/2/20”

Now that the rainbow shawl/scarf is finished, I’ve gone back to working on the Kaleidoscope CAL. Part 4 came out last Friday and on Saturday after I posted last week’s update I had a go at this new part. There are 24 triangles to make in part 4, 12 in one colour scheme and 12Continue reading “On the Hook, 22/2/20”

No progress on the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL this week, but I have finished my lovely rainbow shawl/scarf. I’m really happy with how it looks. Someone at work said it looked joyful, and that is exactly the right description 🙂 Here it is on Monday, when I’d just gone over the half-way point: I finished itContinue reading “On the Hook, 15/2/20”

On the Hook, 8/2/20

Not much progress on the Kaleidoscope CAL this week. I’ve have a total of 7 1/2 part 3 triangles now, so I’ve only done 4 1/2 this week. Mainly due to being exhausted and kind of broken from last weekend’s exertions and a very busy week at work. Some evenings I didn’t crochet at all.Continue reading “On the Hook, 8/2/20”

On the Hook, 1/2/20

I finished my 36 squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL this week: I got them all done and dusted (including ends) last Sunday. So proud to have got them all done. Of course then it was time to get working on part 2 again. Quite slow progress as I’ve only managed to get 8 of theContinue reading “On the Hook, 1/2/20”

On the Hook, 25/1/20

It feels like I haven’t done much this week, but actually I have managed to create 12 more squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL since last week’s post, so that’s not bad for someone working full-time and going to bed at 9pm! I’m now on 33! So close to finishing now. I hope I’ll finish offContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/1/20”

On the Hook 18/1/20

This week I have mainly been crocheting squares for the Kaleidoscope CAL. I have now reached the heady heights of 21 completed squares! Only 15 to go! Yesterday, part 2 of the CAL came out (a triangle), and I’ve done a couple to see what they’re like. I will go back to squares now andContinue reading “On the Hook 18/1/20”
