wuthering wallflower

This month’s make turned out to be a very romantic looking (at least i think so) crochet granny square blanket. I always need an easy not thinking (too much at least) project after i finish a big brain burner, like the #utilitarianutopia HERE. And i had a load of Aran wool i have not used yet – cannot get myself round to using it, not sure why, it seems just too woolly for my taste? (DON’T)… So off i went! Deciding that i will make squares till the crochet yarn runs out, and then put them together. Whatever way … Continue reading

utilitarian utopia

A little while back, i made a blanket inspired by a certain glass artist’s work, read more HERE: The crochet blanket worked well enough then, and i was happy with the outcome. More importantly, its recipient was happy with it too, and it has a pride space in our living room now! Since then, i have been looking at more and more of his glass work, in more and more detail. Becoming mesmerized by the pattern, i decided to try again. Make another crochet blanket, based on the more complicated glass bowls that he makes. Not with mohair, as … Continue reading

rainbow reverie

Welcome to the world a new baby! When i make blanket for babies, i like to use rainbow colours. Baby crochet blankets are smaller and take less time than my giant crochet thinking projects. Baby blankets are finished quicker, and usually way way before the babies are due, just in case…. Spy my BLANKET page HERE to admire them on the bottom of the page in their own dedicated picture gallery, and if you have been gifted one of my baby blankets, see if you can spot yours amongst the others.* *(If you cannot see your own gift on … Continue reading

quintessential questioning

I have finished MOHAIR QUEEN, before New Year’s Eve 2020, and as much as i have wanted to start learning a new brioche hat technique, i wasn’t quite ready for that. What i was ready for, was more of completing a whole, finishing and old crochet WIP (work in progress) project. The cotton squares (mentioned before HERE and HERE) blanket was about to get finished, all together with working out my dense centre granny square into a favourable configuration of granny square and popcorn stitch… Pattern for this singular square, can be found in my Ravelry Pattern Shop HERE. … Continue reading

lucrative labyrinth

It is October. First Saturday in October 2020, and time for my next monthly blog post. September has been busy with a lot of personal stuff, partially because it happened to be so this year, and partially, perhaps, to keep busy through what is usually the most difficult month of my year, emotionally. September usually means new beginnings, which come with some stress until things settle down again. Not sure why, but coincidentally, i usually start new jobs around this time of year, or various courses, and with this excitement of the new thing, also comes the slight stress … Continue reading
