This week has been exhausting, with work and multiple trips to the vet with my cat, with all the associated anxiety, but I still managed to get quite a lot of crochet done. Bobby (the cat) has an eye ulcer, but fortunately it’s almost all healed now. He says “hello” (with a wink)! There haveContinue reading “On the Hook, 18/7/20”

Well after last week’s grand reveal of the finished Pandemonium CAL blanket, I thought there would be nothing much to report this week. However, the lovely designers surprised us with a bonus blanket, the Baby Pandemonium! On Sunday morning when many of us were thinking “oh no it’s Sunday and no more pandemonium parts”, thereContinue reading “On the Hook, 11/7/20”

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”

This week has seen the completion of parts 23 and 24 of the Pandemonium CAL. It’s exciting to see it near finishing, but it’s sad too as I will miss it when it’s finished. Here’s part 23: As you can see in part 23 we continued with more loops (Jacob’s ladder) and reached the lastContinue reading “On the Hook, 20/6/20”

This week I’ve completed parts 21 and 22 of the Pandemonium CAL, and had a change of heart regarding my new ombre yarn. So, part 21 of the CAL came with some contrasting coloured bobbles, and some zig-zagging v-stitch: Part 22 is teasing us with the start of some more loopy bits (otherwise known asContinue reading “On the Hook, 13/6/20”

This week has mostly been about the Pandemonium CAL and the wraparound skirt, although I must admit to starting yet another project too! As usual there have been 2 parts released for the CAL this week – parts 15 and 16. Here’s how things looked at the end of part 15 (on Sunday): And hereContinue reading “On the Hook, 23/5/20”

This week’s Pandemonium parts had bead stitch again, which I love 🙂 So pretty! For some reason I had a mind blank at the end of part 13 and my beads were not quite right, but I fixed them up when I added part 14. Not sure why, but I was putting my hook intoContinue reading “On the Hook, 16/5/20”

Now that I’m up to date with the Pandemonium CAL I’m progressing at a more sedate speed with 2 parts done each week. This week was parts 11 and 12 (13 comes out tomorrow). Part 11 ended with some lovely big bobbles, and had some nicely textured stitches before that. With the green I used,Continue reading “On the Hook, 9/5/20”

This week I have been continuing to enjoy the lovely Pandemonium CAL 😀 This is how it looked in last week’s post: By the next day (Sunday) I had finished part 3: After working from home all day, I finished part 4 on Monday evening. I’d been looking forward to getting back to it allContinue reading “On the Hook, 25/4/20”

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”
