Its been a while since I blogged, mainly because I have been in Australia visiting friends! You may remember that I blogged about my Joy’s Journey blanket. I’d decided to make it for my friend Beccy who lives in Perth in Australia. It not as odd as it sounds, it does get slightly chilly in […]
Some birds appeared…
This week in the Scheepjes Hygge CAL 2017, we are doing another week of double crochet. Another 59 rows. I’ve still got 10 rows of last week’s double crochet to finish off too!! its not that interesting but I suppose as it doesn’t need any concentration its perfect TV crochet!! Oh, and that hook? That’s […]
As well as continuing with my Hygge CAL, I’ve also been working on my new shawl using Scheepjes Whirl. This week its time to show you the “Green Tea Tipple” one that I’m working on.
WIP-WIP, Cross-stitch style!
Nothing much to say, I just enjoyed this picture of my WIPs that I took last week. Oh and I’ve started “proper cross-stitch”, as if I didn’t have enough hobbies….!!!
I thought I’d give this a whirl
Scheepjes have recently released this new yarn called “Whirl”. It comes in this giant “cake” of yarn which is 1000m long. Easily long enough for a shawl I thought!. The yarn is fingering weight and gradually colour-changes to make a really gentle transition between colourways. From what I’ve discovered so far, they are right about […]
Hygge CAL Week 4
I posted a couple of weeks ago about my progress on the Scheepjes Hygge CAL 2017. I’ve been faithfully keeping up with each week and so I thought it was time for a further update.
It’s been a while…
Hello, its been a while since I’ve blogged. I’ve been very busy with other things and I’ve also been suffering a bit with pain in my wrist (eek, too much crochet?!) so I’ve been taking it a bit easy the last week or so, giving my wrist time to heal a bit. I’ve not been […]
Magic Loop Technique – crocheting in the round
I’m using the magic loop for a few of the designs that I’m thinking of at the moment so I thought I’d put up a tutorial for how I do it. This is a crochet tutorial, for a technique used to start crocheting “in the round”, for example when making a mandala or some amigurumi. […]
Oops I did it again….
Earlier, I posted about accidentally buying yarn too gorgeous to use. I’ve done it again…these Scheepjes Maxi BonBon yarns are gorgeous too don’t you think? This time, I actually have a project in mind though…
You know you have a problem when…
…these turn up and you are so excited by how cute they look and how beautiful the colours are that you don’t really want to use them….
Cosy Stripe Blanket (Part 2)
My Cosy Stripe blanket journey continues….See Part 1 here Attic24’s Cosy Stripe Blanket – My way! (Part 1)
Another project that I have on the go at the moment is the Joy’s Journey blanket designed by Dedri over at “Look what I Made”.
Attic24’s Cosy Stripe Blanket – My way! (Part 1)
I’ve really been loving this cosy stripe blanket pattern published by Lucy at Attic24 (you can find it here! Cosy Stripe Blanket). She has a fab tutorial on her website and in-keeping with her encouragement, I decided to create in “colours that make my heart sing”….this is what I did to create my own […]
