Crochet Collars

Crochet Collars

Hello. I hope you are having a lovely week. It’s Lulu’s birthday this week so I’m trying to get organised (when I say ‘trying’ I mean writing lots of lists and not really getting much done.) But I thought I’d pop in and share some images of the crochet collars I designed recently for Knitcrate...

and a giveaway winner

Crochet - Granny Square Blanket

Hello! Thank you to everyone that entered the knit Collage giveaway. It made me very happy to read your comments (and that you love beautiful yarn as much as I do!) I meant to post this last week but I got hit with a virus that left me only feeling able to do the necessities like feeding the little people! I’m feeling much better this week so I thought I would post the winner and show Lulu’s FINISHED crochet blanket…

A little while ago I received a lovely email from Amy Small at Knit Collage. She told me that she had made up some of my collars in her Maharani Silk and oh they looked gorgeous. Knit Collage create the most beautiful, unique yarns I have ever come across and after admiring them she kindly offered to send some for me to try...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

And a bit of a catch up...

Paper Mache Hot Air Balloons

Hello! It feels like a very long time since I've posted anything here. I have been busy crocheting, although recently my efforts have been focused on designs for other people. This has been both exciting and challenging. I have enjoyed being able to pin down some of my ideas into new projects - it has taken me out of my comfort zone but this is a good thing!

Anyway I thought I'd stop by quickly today to share some of the Easter crafting the children (and I) enjoyed...

Crochet - Cushion Love

The Crocodile Flower

Crochet - Cushion Love

Hello! I came to a bit of a standstill this weekend with my crochet projects. Lulu's blanket is still coming along and although I've completed 120 squares I had not sewn in any ends. I'm now paying the price and trying to sew them in after I've joined each row. Making it slow going (and slightly tedious) but I know it will be worth it in the end. I've also been working on some new ideas but what I really wanted was a weekend project, something that I could finish!

I took to Ravelry to find something pretty that I could make which would take my mind off the numbers/stitches/charts that had been clouding my thoughts...
