I wanted to make something to give my son-in-law as part of his birthday present. He belongs to CAMRA the real ale organisation, it’s one of his main hobbies, and I found a beer themed card, so I decided to make a crochet beermat. I didn’t have any beer coloured cotton yarn but I went… Read More A little present and some new socks
Joining in with Wild Daffodil’s Textile Tuesday; see her’s here – https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com/2020/03/03/textile-tuesday-box/ Recently when going down to Woolston to buy some more yarn I decided to pop into the library and take a look at the display I had been told about. The display containing many knitted figures is to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of… Read More Textile Tuesday
This last month I have done some knitting and some crochet. I finished my crochet case for my ergonomic hooks and I worked out to how to create a way of securing my phone in its case that could just be used when necessary but otherwise was out of the way.

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
This last month I completed the sixth part of the Sacred Space CAL though I now realise I will need to buy at least one ball of more yarn for the next section. The only project I finished was my crochet paper chain but I got on well with the top for my daughter. As… Read More Monthly Montage – December
I wish you Joy and Peace at Christmas And Thank You to everyone for your comments.

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
