Lululoves Crochet Podcast Episode 2

I’ve done it  - I’ve filmed another episode of my vlog/podcast series. I have not yet managed to up my game in the filming department but if you would like to watch me waffle on for 25 minutes about my latest crochet projects and don’t mind me saying ‘um’ every other sentence then please have a watch...

Crochet - Potholders

Crochet - Potholders

Hello and Happy Friday! I’ve been compiling a little inventory of WIPs this week and beside realising I have started way more projects than I’ve time to finish I’ve also found projects that I’ve finished and haven’t yet shared. So today I thought I’d pop in to show you some cute potholders that I completed earlier this year….

Crochet: February Projects

I promised myself this year that I would make more of the patterns I have bookmarked over the years.  There are so many lovely patterns out there but I am starting small, I am determined to pick one at a time and finish it!  So I’m really happy that last month I finished two items that have been on my wish list for a long time….

Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016

Ahh the holidays. The break over Christmas was so desperately needed.  They were quiet and gentle and just what we craved after the craziness of 2016. We’d had the builders in for six solid months, the work infiltrated every single room and it left us all feeling slightly misplaced (and totally shattered). Finally things seem to be coming together and now the mammoth task of decorating begins. But before that, two weeks of hibernating: of walks, watching movies at 3pm in our pjs, lazy suppers of leftovers, board games and naps. Total BLISS.

Crochet - Granny Square Shrug
