On the Hook, 4/4/20

Another peculiar week of working from home and online meetings. Not as stressful as last week, thankfully, but still very odd at times. I will have to venture out later to pick up prescriptions. It’s so weird that something that I used to consider perfectly normally now seems scary and strange. So anyway, back toContinue reading “On the Hook, 4/4/20”

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, 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”

So here are the other three… I used the “Stylin’ Tote Bag” pattern by Cathy Phillips forContinue reading “No longer secret crochet!”

Floral Rainbow

I’m not sure if it’s just a British thing but we have a little mnemonic for the colours of the rainbow: “Richard of York gave battle in vain”. That’s the phrase that has stuck in my mind since childhood, rather than the “Roy G. Biv” of this challenge. But whatever method you choose to remindContinue reading “Floral Rainbow”

Morning Raindrops

We had some rain yesterday and overnight after a long dry period. The plants were crying out for it and so was I if I’m honest – the heat has been too much for me. This morning the sun was shining and the garden was covered in droplets so we had to pop out andContinue reading “Morning Raindrops”

Rainbow

I’m a walking talking clichĂ© factory Opening the curtains today I’m greeted by a rainbow I could take it as a sign of hope Or I could take it as a sign Of science and refraction And random chance of Sunlight and raindrops being In the right place At the right time But the darknessContinue reading “Rainbow”
