Peach Crochet Blanket and Cushions
Peach Crochet Blanket and Cushions After months of work I’ve completed a monster peach crochet blanket and two matching cushions. Its taken me ages and I’ve completely lost track of how much yarn its swallowed. Here it is… The colours were chosen by someone else and I think they’ve worked really well as a whole. […]
Flower Blanket Design for Tracey’s Book
Last year I was commissioned to be a guest designer in Tracey Todhunter’s crochet book. I was asked to rustle up a flower blanket pattern using gorgeous DMC Woolly. The design had to include a join-as-you-go method so after lots of uhm-ing and ah-ing I came up with this… Flower Blanket I’m so pleased with […]
The End of the Never-Ending Blanket
I’ve finished the enormous hexagon blanket that I started way back. Finally!!! It seemed to go on and on forever, I never thought I’d reach the end. Its been packed and posted off to its new owner and I’m a little sorry to see it go. Its been a long process making this blanket. 8ft […]

A Bit of Knitting
When I say a bit, I mean a lot. An awful lot. Enough to keep me busy since November! Now, this blanket is a commissioned one so I didn’t get to choose the colour. If I ever see Wendy mode in cypress again I might just scream! Oh, the browness of it. Its been a […]
Moving and Ripples
I’ve moved house, but enough about that. Here’s what I’ve been up to when I wasn’t packing boxes and calming cats… Five little ripple blankets using a made up pattern that turns out to be exactly the same as Lucy’s Neat Ripple Pattern. Right, more unpacking… Happy hooking!
