Here I am with four projects on the go and I really ought to get on with the blanket and I am starting another project. You see I booked myself in to something that calls itself a crochet retreat and runs over a weekend in October. Sounded fun. But I realised that although I made… Read More Oh Dear! starting another project or maybe two.
Recently I realised that I needed to buy more of three of the colours I was using for my Sacred Space blanket or I would run out. Buying on-line is not the best idea when you want so few balls of a relatively cheap yarn and anyway I like to support local shops, although the… Read More Progressing with Blanket
Joining with Sandra of Wild Daffodil and her Textile Tuesday I decided that I would follow her example and share some tapestry pictures I have. Not nearly as impressive as her needlepoint but with fond memories. These were created when I was in my teens as a joint project with my mother. A little hard… Read More Tapestry Roses
As I have done previously I like to create a montage of the projects I have completed over the previous year. This year I completed nine crochet items and eight knitted ones. I notice that they are all useful practical things. For crochet five of these were made to give away. There was a crochet… Read More 2019 Crochet and Knitting completed

Unfortunately, as she has just started her ‘A’ levels she has not had time for crochet so in the end I made them all. It had always… Read More Christmas Project Reveal

I have been working on the top for my daughter. Here are some steps along the way. First of all I worked the circular part around the armhole. Here you can see another view to show the pattern better. After working part 2, that was similar but was more of a strip worked back and… Read More Top progressing!
Recently I discovered that the first pair of socks I had made for myself all those years ago (over seven years!) had developed a hole. Oh no! Just one stitch missing sort of hole and when I am feeling very clear headed I will try to repair it. It is a bit sad but I… Read More I need more socks!
Last summer my daughter was helping at a Summer festival that she goes to called ‘Joust’ and she sent me an email with a copy of a photograph she had taken of a lady in a crochet top she had admired because “I thought you’d like to see it.” Always on the look out for… Read More Something for my Daughter
