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
Here is what I was about to make when I showed you this photograph. This! The project had started as something that my granddaughter could take part in. 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!
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
I have finally finished part six of the Sacred Space blanket CAL. The really crazy thing is that having finished the corner with the cream yarn, now that I had it. I realised that I had followed the colour choices for this part of the pattern slavishly, in that the last two rows were in… Read More Sacred Space part 6
I am always happy to see what other people make of my patterns and recently Tanya, who I think lives in Canada, sent me a picture of a Celtic Coaster she had made. I thought it was well made and enjoyed her strong primary colours. And then, and this is the clever bit, she sent… Read More Isn’t this clever!
I finished parts three and four a while ago but thought I would wait to update you all. Especially as I get the feeling that this is maybe of interest to less people. Notes for part 3 I had a fairly clear idea of what I wanted for this part but was following the pattern… Read More Sacred Space parts 3, 4 and 5
I am happy to say that I have finally finished the blanket. The last rounds were few but took longer of course. The two rows for the flowers took an hour or so per side to complete so I took it easy and just enjoyed the ride. There were times when I decided that marking… Read More Lost Garden blanket complete
After I wrote the last post about this blanket I finished the first part of the CAL. And then moved on the the next part. I have now finished Part 2. I would have been further on with part three if I hadn’t decided to go back to working on the Lost Garden blanket. I… Read More Sacred Space blanket to date
