Wool and The Gang

Thanks to Wool and The Gang for sending me this awesome ra ra raffia kit! I’ve not worked with raffia before (my cat loves it) so I’m really excited to try it out. This is a sweet purse kit and will be super handy when I finish it!

Get yours here:



Ok so i seemed to lose my cro-jo in the second half of last year. Do you ever get like that? Nothing seems to be working, all the yarn is wrong, patterns don’t make sense. I did get a few things finished, but not at my usual pace. So 2018 has began and I’m pleased to say, I’m back! I ended the year on a cruise to New Zealand where I had literally nothing to do but eat, drink, relax, and crochet. It was magical. I finished a shawl made from a Whirl! It had been 4 years since my last cruise and boy did I miss it! New Zealand was magical, and I can’t wait to go back! Since coming home I ordered some more yarn. I hadn’t ordered yarn in forever! This has sparked something in me and now I’m a crochet machine again. I’ve finished a yellow baby blanket and started 2 more. I hope to use up some of my stash of yarns and make a heap of blankets this year. I also plan on making heaps of beanies with my knitting machine and donating them to charity. What are your crochet goals?
