On the Hook – all sorts

What have I been doing lately? I took some photos of myself actually wearing the lovely Mosaic jumper: And I bought some tights specifically to go with my jumper! They’re from my favourite tights shop Snag Tights. I have many different colours already, but decided to add a mustard pair to my collection. One evening,…… Continue reading On the Hook – all sorts

On the Hook, Mosaic Jumper

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

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

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’t…… Continue 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 and…… Continue reading On the Hook, 12/9/20

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 done…… Continue reading On the Hook, 29/8/20

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 of…… Continue reading On the Hook, 8/8/20

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: One of the central combinations One of the edge combinations What I’ve done instead…… Continue reading On the Hook, 7/3/20

I thought I’d try and do a regular crochet update, and a Saturday morning seems like a good time. So what have I been up to recently? While I was visiting family for Christmas, I picked up some Caron Simply Soft from Hobbycraft at half price. I was very pleased with this bargain! I’ve started…… Continue reading On the Hook 4/1/20
