On the Hook, 27/6/20

This week has seen us reach the end of the main parts of the Pandemonium CAL. All that is left now is the border. It’s a strange mixture of happy and sad. This is how I described it in a post in our Facebook group: It’s like a really good book, where you are soContinue reading “On the Hook, 27/6/20”

On the Hook, 18/4/20

Today I have officially freed myself from a feeling of obligation to finish the Kaleidoscope CAL. I really did want to have that beautiful finished blanket, but the pleasure of creating had gone. I kept doing other things because I didn’t want to keep creating lots and lots of triangles, and I was feeling guiltyContinue reading “On the Hook, 18/4/20”

On the Hook, 12/4/20

It’s a day late, but better late than never. I wasn’t feeling too great yesterday and didn’t get around to doing my usual crochet update. Probably didn’t help that I haven’t done that much crochet this week! So, the lilac cardi has grown, but not massively: It looks kind of lumpy in this shot. It’sContinue reading “On the Hook, 12/4/20”

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”

On the Hook, 14/3/20

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”

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”

On the Hook, 15/2/20

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 11/1/20

This week I have been continuing to work on my squares for the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL. So far I have 13. I’m working towards a total of 36. I don’t think I’ll have all 36 done by the time the next part of the CAL comes out (17th) but that really doesn’t matter. I’m thinkingContinue reading “On the Hook 11/1/20”

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”
