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
Going to make a montage for November I realised that I do not have ones for either September or October. Now these montages are made as much for myself as for others because they are an excellent way to find out when I made a particular thing. So I decided to fill in the missing… Read More Missing Montages
I’ve given in to the weather and taken the best photos I can of my new hat and scarf. I had to adjust the colours but it is almost impossible to reproduce the particular shade of blue green. I suppose it is somewhere between turquoise and peacock blue. I have made both of the patterns… Read More At last I have something to show you!
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!

Of course I tidied it up and sewed in the ends. And attached it to a… Read More A Crafted Birthday
This month was dominated by blanket making but I did also manage to make a pair of trousers. I showed you the yarn that I was sent by Stylecraft after I had had a problem with one of the balls for my Lost Garden blanket and the extra colours I had chosen for making the… Read More Monthly Montage – August
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
