I seem to have only one project on the go at a time at present. I would have liked to show you a finished item but rather than not post anything this week I have photographed what I have got. One of my “Crafty Coffee” friends is about to be a grandmother for the first… Read More This is how far I have got!
I have finally finished my rainbow socks and I thought I would share them with you. I like the way the colours of each sock compare. And here I am wearing them. or But at the moment I am not sure when to actually wear them as I know they will not look as good once they are washed,… Read More Rainbow socks! Yay!
I have finally decided what to make to get back to crafting – socks! I chose socks because apart from the toes and heels they are just so easy, perfect for ‘Crafty Coffee’ mornings, watching TV and totally not stressful or challenging. I don’t feel up to challenging! So what socks? Years ago when I… Read More My latest project.
Do you remember when I showed you this teaser. Well the squares on the left were for one side of a cushion cover. So are the ones on the right but I haven’t made the full set yet. Now I haven’t done much crochet since I made these and it seems to have been all… Read More A Crochet cushion cover
So here is what I was making! The photograph was them end to end and inside out showing all the ends. Not easy to guess I know. The reason I made them was because the saffron coloured ones I had made beforehad got rather grubby and fluffy because I wore them so much and my… Read More Rainbow mittens
I have just completed the project I started after I had finished the cloth for the dining table. I wanted something that would be easy on my hands and this bag has been on my to-do list for quite some time.I have made two bags before. This one was a present and a trial before… Read More A beautiful bag
This is a very special project that has been on my mind since the early days of my blog. Once I was comfortable with crochet, I knew that I wanted to make something to go on my dining table. The early thoughts were actually fairly monochrome but one day I saw this rug – http://vi.sualize.us/pdf_pattern_hexagon_rug_available_in_english_and_spanish_yo-yo_spiral_crochet_stripe_picture_C1BQ.html… Read More My latest Rainbow project
Last Christmas I bought my granddaughter a Rainbow Loom and some extra bands to go with it. (Well just the name was obviously attractive!) I’m assuming here that everyone knows what I am talking about – It’s a way of making bracelets from small elastic bands. These last few weeks I have seen that you… Read More I’m just a child at heart!
As I said last week, I was going to make a second crochet hook case for my longer thicker hooks. I do have one really thick hook that I inherited from my mother that is the equivalent of a 6.5mm hook. I have not included this one. This time it is my own pattern. Here… Read More A second crochet case!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who made suggestions as to what I could use my stained glass style crochet mat for. I probably won’t follow up on all of them but I will definitely revisit this pattern in the future when I have some black cotton yarn. I am really trying to work hard… Read More Thank you! and a hook case
