I have finished something! I am abnormally pleased by this, because it means my WIP list is smaller. And also, because I’m quite worn down at the moment, the ‘finished’ buzz is more rewarding than usual. I can’t do x/y/z at the moment but look, I can finish a project! Two, in fact, as you’ll … More Ta da! Stardust Melodies blanket
Who fancies a new pattern to cheer up their Tuesday? Ta da! Those of you who follow me on instagram will have seen sneak peeks of this blanket already. I love the designs I normally create, rich and textured, but sometimes you just need something simpler. Something quick, easy, and portable. Thus, this blanket was … More Spin Me Around
It’s nice finishing something quickly, sometimes. I love big projects, I love the planning and the work and the final ‘omg yes it’s brilliant’ moment, but I do also like things that are more of an instant gratification thing. Or, if not instant, at least ‘a couple of weeks’ rather than ‘several months’! So, as … More Ta da! Baby blanket
So, hands up who else forgot it was Mother’s Day on Sunday? No? Just me then? *headdesk* in my defence, I spent last week in a hazy fog of ME exhaustion, plus my mother is actually in hospital at the moment (heading towards three weeks now, ugh) and one way or another, Mother’s Day just … More Tiny ta da
Anyone else wake up to snow today? 😀 Brr, it’s cold. But oh so pretty! This last week or so, I’ve mostly been working on a corner-to-corner cushion to match my latest blanket – and to use up some of the ends of yarn leftover from that! I’m very pleased with the result, and it’s … More Ta da! C2C cushion
I’m very excited about this blog post, because I have some brilliant news to share, and in connection with that, I am also finally going to be sharing pictures of my latest design. The pattern is going to be posted on Thursday 1st February (giving me time to finish tidying it up!), but since you … More The Secret Garden
So in my last blogpost I said that there was one more Christmas present I still had to show you, but that it needed its own post. This is it. This is Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, rendered in freeform crochet. Before we go any further into exploring this, let me stress that this was … More The Starry Night
I hope you all had a great Christmas 😀 mine was mostly quiet and peaceful, with lots of lovely yarn and lots of lovely food. And now that’s over, I can share some of the projects I’ve been working on over the autumn, because everyone now has their gift 🙂 This is Esther Chandler’s Summer … More Post-Christmas ta da!
I have made a hat!!! It’s not perfect, but it’s good enough 😀 I am extremely pleased. The cowl was easy enough, but ohhh that hat took a lot of ripping out and reworking. Mum refused to model for me, so hat and cowl worn by yours truly. The hat’s a bit big … More Ta da! Forked cluster hat and cowl
Sometimes you’ve just got to stash bust. You’ve just got to. Part-balls and full balls and random bits and pieces that just have to be used. Storage space stuffed to the maximum. Bags of yarn spilling over into other areas of the house. No room for purchasing more yarn for another project (like, say, my … More Stashbust ta da!
