Blanket Progress

I’ve been making a lot of shawls and scarfs lately but not a lot of blankets. I got in stages of loving giant projects then hating them. I’ve recently started a few blankets and work on them every so often. I have a stash busting 12 point ripple, yellow cotton baby blanket, and a pink diamond baby blanket.

I’m trying to use up a lot of my stash as i’ve had yarns sitting in it for years and also because i want to buy more yarn hahaha A 12 point Continue reading Blanket Progress

Finished: Sunday Shawl

I’ve had the Sunday Shawl Pattern on my computer for a year now. It seems to be a project i like to start and never finish, then for it to vanish so i have to start again. So a few weekends ago I sat down and made it, start to finish. The pattern is so simple to understand, lots of photos. This was my first paid pattern so was hesitant at first, but Continue reading Finished: Sunday Shawl

rainbow star blankets

I decided to whip up a couple of baby blankets just to have on stand by. Does anyone else get slightly mad when their partner or family member just casually decides to tell you they need a baby blanket for their work friend? Happened so much last year, I’m prepared this time. These blankets will look familiar to a few if you’ve followed me fr a while now. Just the 12 point ripple pattern by the crochet crowd and my favourite yarn from Woolly and Warm. I made these a lot smaller than the original as they are meant for babies or young children who don’t need such a bulky blanket.
Love how these turn out and will try to make a few more to stock my Etsy store which i have been neglecting.

In Progress: Rainbow Hexagon Blanket

I’m trying to now buy anymore yarn for a while and use up what i have. I have a lot. Like too much. So I’m trying all sorts of stash busting patterns. I made a hexagon blanket a few months back and loved the result so i thought i’d give it another go. I decided to make rainbow centres and do the final round in white to make the rainbow colours shine. Continue reading In Progress: Rainbow Hexagon Blanket

Blue Cape Thing

I had this amazing blue yarn sitting in my pile that was calling out for something unique. I found this awesome pattern on google and had to try it. It was for a large cape style shawl, but i figured i’d just keep going until i ran out of yarn. I love love love diagram patterns, my brain simply cannot read written patterns, so this was perfect.
This took a couple of days to make and was a simple pattern after the initial rows. I guess this is a caplet of something, either way it’s so unique and lovely. I added some strings to keep it on my shoulders. I cannot wait for winter, mainly because it’s 38 Celsius right now, but also so i can wear this. Sadly it doesn’t get that cold where i live that we need wraps, scarfs, and ponchos, it’s all mainly for decoration.

Happy New Crochet Year!

I haven’t blogged in over a month, where has the time gone! I’ve been so caught up with Christmas, work, in the process of buying a house, packing up my current house, new years eve, going back to work, and finally getting well and truly sick! Fhew, I have been crocheting, if you follow my Facebook and instagram you would have seen it 😉
I’ve made a few shawls, scarfs, started a few blankets, an even finished a few! I’ll put the details up over the next few weeks. I’ve got a lot of crochet plans for this year so hopefully it doesn’t go that fast!
