No progress on the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL this week, but I have finished my lovely rainbow shawl/scarf. I’m really happy with how it looks. Someone at work said it looked joyful, and that is exactly the right description 🙂 Here it is on Monday, when I’d just gone over the half-way point: I finished it…… Continue reading On the Hook, 15/2/20
Not much progress on the Kaleidoscope CAL this week. I’ve have a total of 7 1/2 part 3 triangles now, so I’ve only done 4 1/2 this week.

This week I have been continuing to work on my squares for the Kaleidoscope Blanket CAL. So far I have 13. I’m working towards a total of 36. I don’t think I’ll have all 36 done by the time the next part of the CAL comes out (17th) but that really doesn’t matter. I’m thinking…… Continue reading On the Hook 11/1/20
I picked up a great new crochet book at the weekend from The Works. It’s called Crocheted Wreaths and Garlands, by Kate Eastwood. There are some gorgeous things to create. Here are a few little samples… Spring flower garland Summer flower garland Daisy and bee wreath Looking forward to trying out these patterns!
I thought I’d try and do a regular crochet update, and a Saturday morning seems like a good time. So what have I been up to recently? While I was visiting family for Christmas, I picked up some Caron Simply Soft from Hobbycraft at half price. I was very pleased with this bargain! I’ve started…… Continue reading On the Hook 4/1/20
