Back in May/June this year I entered a competition at Deramores. I didn’t win, so I thought I’d share my crochet design on my blog as I put a lot of work into it. So here we have the Poppy and Bee Square: It’s an abstract impression of a grassy meadow with poppies growing, bees…… Continue reading Poppy and Bee Square

What have I been doing lately? I took some photos of myself actually wearing the lovely Mosaic jumper: And I bought some tights specifically to go with my jumper! They're from my favourite tights shop Snag Tights. I have many different colours already, but decided to add a mustard pair to my collection. One evening,… Continue reading On the Hook – all sorts

Last night I finished crocheting this jumper! 😀 I still have the ends to do, and there are a LOT of them. Hopefully I’ll get them done today and then I can actually wear this 🙂 I’ll probably try and get some photos of me wearing it once they’re done. Here are the progress photos…… Continue reading On the Hook – Mosaic Jumper Finished!
As you may have seen last week (if you got to the end of the post!) I started a new jumper on Christmas day. The pattern is from Inside Crochet (issue 129), designed by Sandra Gutierrez AKA Nomad Stitches, and I’m using Cygnet DK yarn. My Mum bought me the yarn for Christmas, so of…… Continue reading On the Hook, Mosaic Jumper
This week I have been doing quite a variety of things! Now all the Christmas crochet is done and dusted, the freedom to crochet whatever I like has gone to my head a bit! I did a little bit on my Metropolis Cardigan which hasn’t been worked on for many, many months (I think I…… Continue reading On the Hook, 26/12/20 (normal service resumes!)
Finally I can show you what secret things I was making for about half the year! Back in July, when I finished my Pandemonium Blanket, I was kind of in between projects. I started the Baby Pandemonium when that came out, and I’d made a Pandemonium inspired cushion, but wasn’t totally invested yet. Then I…… Continue reading On the Hook: Christmas Present Reveal!
As you may know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, last year I crocheted a set of Christmas baubles. We also bought a living tree last year, for the first time, and the baubles were gradually added to it as I made them. This has started a new tradition for us. We…… Continue reading New Traditions (and crochet update)
Well, I’ve slipped out of the habit of weekly crochet updates, but I’m randomly posting today as I’ve finished something that I am allowed to show you! This is the Amelia Raglan that I started back in June. The body was done with just the rib to finish, and sleeves to add. I picked it…… Continue reading On the Hook, 14/12/20
This week (well, 2 weeks really as I didn’t update last week), the Diamonds not Pearls jumper has grown, and I’ve made a bauble. Here’s the jumper: Won’t be too long until I reach the bottom and will move on to the sleeves. The texture is lovely: Yesterday I came across Lilla Björn’s new CAL…… Continue reading On the Hook, 21/11/20
