I’ve finally got to the joining stage of this blanket – hurrah! And of course that means that my progress is now going to be paaaainstakingly slow for some time to come. This is why: ‘But human,’ she seems to say, ‘this is such a lovely cozy blanket you’ve made for me. Of COURSE it’s … More The cat comes first. Obviously.
Don’t you love looking at a pile of crocheted squares, all neat and uniform, ends sewn in and everything? Me too. It makes it look like I’m making such wonderful progress, doesn’t it? And I think it’s fair to say that appearances are not too deceiving, in this case. So far I’ve made twenty-eight 3″ … More Progress report
Thank you all for the lovely comments and reactions to the ‘Eve’s Sunflowers’ blanket 😀 I’m so glad you all like it, and I’m so excited to see other people begin to make it. I’m hard at work on my next blanket – three square patterns are written, so I’m a good third of the … More
Don’t you love that ‘new project’ feel? The excitement, the anticipation, the glorious mountains of yarn to squish and choose from? I’ve not been idle, the past fortnight, butI haven’t done any designing. I made some little amigurumi Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a friend’s children (and consequently had the cartoon theme music on repeat … More New project 😀
…a pile of squares, ends all sewn in, ready to be worked together into a blanket. Is there a better feeling than this? Well, when it’s all finished that’ll be pretty good too 😀
The Sunflowers blanket is coming along nicely, and I’m hard at work on it, writing up the pattern, photographing all the tricky bits, and working up the necessary number of each square. Next pattern I’m going to do something with fewer colour changes! *headdesk* sooo many ends to sew in. Ah well, it’ll look fabulous … More Sneak peek
Well, 2016 is over – at last! It’s been a strange year in all sorts of ways, for lots of people, but the strangest thing that happened to me was that I suddenly seemed to become a crochet designer. This time last year I’d never thought about it. Ever. I had never made a whole … More 2016 – what a year.
I made three Christmas blankets this year. One was a commission, and I posted about that already, but the other two were gifts for very good friends of mine, both of whom read my blog, and so of course I couldn’t post pictures before they’d opened their presents! But they each now have their blanket, … More Post-Christmas ta da – the blanket version
Now that Christmas is over with, I can share some of the little things I crocheted for my friends for Christmas 🙂 I’ve also got a couple of Christmas-present-blankets to share, but those are gorgeous enough to merit their own post. This one will be reserved for the little geeky things I made. One of … More Post-Christmas ta da!
I tend to be a one-project-at-a-time sort of woman. I don’t usually like having more than one project on the go, because I have an appalling ability to end up getting myself into a massive muddle about what I’m doing and what still needs to be done, and I end up standing in the middle … More Granny Blues
