A quick update for you on my 109 Blanket progress….its going better than expected!!
The 109 Blanket
‘ve had a bit of time off, raising a tiny human but I’m starting slowly to get my cro-yo back on and have the occasional spare half-hour to actually do some of it!
This 109 Blanket might be the thing to help me get motivated again!
It was another WIP weekend…
Well this weekend was yet another WIP wet weekend…when will summer arrive? I made the most of being confined indoors by working on my crochet! I’ve been cracking on with my “Last Dance on the Beach” blanket and I think I made some good progress over the past two days!
A WIP in time…or is it nine?
I’ve just got back from a nice sunny Saturday run. I went “nosing” around all the posh houses and gardens (all £1m plus!) today. I can only dream of owning one of those. I’ve returned to the more reasonably priced end of town and an sitting on my patio pondering what to do next! I […]

Liquorice Yum Yum Shawl
As you’ve probably spotted, I’m a little obsessed with Scheepjes Whirl at the moment. Having finished off my Green Tea Tipple Scheepjes Whirl Shawl I’m absolutely loving wearing it, I almost don’t want the summer to come, just so I can keep wearing it….!! OK, I said ALMOST!! come on Summer, hurry up and be […]
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 […]
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….
