Hexagon Blanket cont.

Work on the 8ft by 8ft hexagon blanket continues. I’ve finished joining the ends together and just need to make some half hexagons for two of the edges. It’s starting to look awesome!  BUT, oh boy, are there ends to sew in.  A snaggled mass of ends waiting patiently for me to deal with.  For […]

Granny Blanket

I found a bag stuffed deep in the darkest corner of the Wool Room.  “What’s this in here, then?”  I wondered as my hands delved in to find out.  Out came an almost complete granny square blanket! “Brilliant!”  I thought smugly.  Now I can finish something!  For weeks I’ve been drowning in unfinished projects, tripping […]

Folk Blanket

One week before Christmas I began to work on Dads Christmas present.  A ripple blanket in bright colours and a folky feel.  Folk = scraps in my mind so I rummaged a sizeable collection of Cascade 220 Superwash from the Wool Stash and got hooking. There are splooshes of pink and peach, green and brown… […]

Blanket Commission

Recently I was commissioned to make one of my Blooming Flowers blankets.  I started making the blocks and flowers… I love this design.  Its so bright and cheery.  One day I’ll make one just for me!  Whenever I get a VW camper van (lottery winnings needed) I shall drape one of these blankets over the […]

Stuffed Heart

My latest design… A stuffed heart! I think I might use it to make Christmas decorations.  Yes, I know it’s July but tempus fugit and all that. Top Tip:  Use a cotton yarn or something quite sturdy so the heart will keep its shape. I wanna make it… The PDF download is available in either […]

[…]

Rosanna Crochet Pattern

I don’t think I ever got around to posting about this pattern. The pattern is for the 8 inch crochet block and includes yardage per block so you can work out how much yarn you’ll need. I published it on Ravelry and Etsy ages and ages and ages ago but didn’t mention it here.  It’s […]

Rose Square Crochet Pattern

Yes, its Christmas Eve afternoon and I’m still working.  Its all a vain attempt to fool Santa Claus into thinking I’ve been a good girl.  I haven’t though, I stole biscuits from the cupboard when no one was looking and I’ve ignored the mound of ironing that is threatening to topple and engulf us all […]
